Neither of the fighters had been KO'd in 100++ fights! Always going to be a contender for FOTN.Justin

Jupes, you nailed it right there. Found myself laughing with excitement at the entertainment Ebersole delivered. One tough SOB. Seemed to simply disregard Lytle's known, and rightly regarded, toughness. Offering his neck in such brazen fashion was gutsy. Looking forward to his next fight.

Great fight!!! Glad to see you guys won your well deserved FOTN bonus. And I think Meathead must get confused easily and thought you were Bisping maybe?

Your performance was fantastic! I became a fan of yours after watching the fight and the post-fight interview with Ariel Helwani. Congratulations on your win!P.S. Awesome that you are on the UG (and so active). It's cool to get to read a fighters words after a fight, and to congratulate them.
