Evan Dunham vs Rick Glenn
A solid, if unspectacular performance by Dunham to get the decision victory. If the whole fight was like the last minute, it would have been a blinder. Saw plenty of Glenn’s bravery and resilience, but not really what he’s got to offer offensively. Will have to see what he’s got at Featherweight if he drops back down.
Uriah Hall vs Derek Brunson
Derek Brunson is a bad dude. After an opening minute of clinch work, the first punch Brunson landed was a sniper accurate left hand that dropped Hall. The stoppage was possibly slightly on the early side but not so much that the booing from the crowd was justified, but meatheads gonna meathead.
Poirier vs Johnson
Urgh. Johnson started the faster and got the knock out finish. He then shot himself straight to the top of the douche bag list with his celebration. Then in his post-fight interview he says he deserves Conor McGregor money. Pfft. I don’t specifically root AGAINST many fighters in particular, but I’m looking forward to supporting whoever is facing Johnson next.
