A great night of fights last night. Had Good winning 29-28, but judges love the takedown.

Very good Card. MTV 2 needs to Broadcast in HD. Although the sound of the event was off the hook. I was pleasantly surprised how you could clearly hear some of Eddie's thudding body shots (which imo was key to Eddie's win) also you could clearly hear the crack of that spectacular flying knee by the Pitbull - it seriously sounded like that knee broke bone! Lastly, liked that fact Eddie went for the finish but didn't get so reckless that he was dropped like more than a few of his past several fights. Dominating performance by Eddie Alvarez over a very young gifted prospect.Again, really good Card.

Wow...the ignorant judgment calls on Eddie in this thread are astounding. Guess I can't expect more from today's UG.
