yeah, here's the scorecard after the 4th round
Image

the zombie had the win until he walked into that out of nowhere backwards upward elbow at the last second for one of the most stunning finishes ever
Image

great bout all around, although i must admit the stops during the fight to give hugs and props to each other was somewhat off-putting, but that finish more than made up for it.

What an amazing fight that was.

I didn't mind the hugs since both these guys were in something special since both were off for sometime, but I didn't like the hugging in the last few seconds. But all that was forgiven after that "buzzer beater unique ackward, whathe F8ck" knockout

I really hope fight Habib vs GSP will be soon and I think it can be an amazing evening. Or fight Habib vs Ferguson, I know a lot of people wait for it Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Weird to see that considering he's on a three fight win streak. I imagine he thought he was worth more than they were willing to give. Bellator will scoop him up quickly.

Pretty boy Sage has too much persona and is right to think he can do better elsewhere.

From what I know, he was getting a pretty high payout compared to others ranked similar/better fighters. I know UFC was planning on grooming him to be the next big thing and after 4 years I suspect he hasn't been able to gain the necessary skills at this time.

Sage was a can crusher but would get crushed by any top 15 guys.

Pretty face without the high-level skill, his personality may take him far in Bellator.

Was anyone else at 231 last night? I'm so glad I decided to go last minute. I wasn't hyped for much other than the main event but there's something special about Toronto where every card here turns out greater than expected and I knew I would regret missing it.

I took this pic of the crowd shortly before the co-main event. Full res here if anyone wants to use it as a wallpaper or whatever

That's awesome man, hope you enjoyed. I didn't go. But I still do remember going to the first ever UFC event in Canada, when it was at the Skydome in Toronto back in 2011 or 2012 or something like that. It had GSP vs Shields, Aldo vs Hominek and Machida vs Couture. What an epic card that was, and the crowd was unreal. It was a surreal experience. 55,000 people, fully packed and sold out. We even made a human earthquake with our feet!

Did anyone else catch Max Holloway's dominant performance against Ortega? Wow, what a great fighter. I completely underestimated him and actually chose Ortega for the win, but I forgot how good Holloway really is. He beat José Aldo twice, after all.

I was there for the first one too when the feet earthquake was happening during the Aldo fight.

Tickets were insanely expensive for this event, but both the first fight and especially the main event may have made this worth the price of admission.
