  1. Aww KB like Howie Day said, even the BEST fall down sometimes hahahaha. You you make like maaaaaaayyybe 2 or 3 mistakes per YEAR on air, so we can let this one slide. I thought it was a great post fight show. Perfection is kinda blah to me. I like unique things like Mike saying it wasn't a liver shot and then asking a question and everyone just stood there with blank stares, and then JJ trying to steal your outro to the commercial break, and Dom and Mike going back and forth… I was entertained

  2. karyn is still wrong, the elbow did land. plus eddie did other illegal things – as stated by the ref in his twitter. clearly dustin was taking a rest when eddie was in mount. how do i know this – because poirer unleashed the beast as soon as he got up. jouban is on point here. are people talking about his elbow for ratings or what? I didnt see it as a big deal.

  4. NO!!! Our Queen is leaving us for the NFL… No!!! Well I can't wait to see KB interview Bill Bellichick or Tom Brady on the sidelines. Oh wait. Richard Sherman when he is amped up. I'd love to see KB handle a Richard Sherman angry rant.

    • Alex Rogers like who, TJ smashed both Lineker and Assuncao, Marlon doesn't seen like too much of a challenge. Maybe it's be cool to see Cody fight these guys, but there isn't much competition for TJ should he win, not sure if Dominic will look the same after all his time off, and he just might be getting older and be on his decline if he comes back. Might be good if Cody wins, and TJ sits out for a year like he does in between fights, that way it's open for fresh match ups for the title.
