Mike Easton vs. Jared Papazian was the FOTN and nothing was even close to it. Piss poor decision choosing anything over it.

Tough choice? Bullshit. More like favoritism. The only clean, technical strikes delivered were a couple kicks from Barry and a jab from Morecraft. The rest was very sloppy stand up from start to finish with a couple of nice submission attempts in between. Even the glancing blow that stunned the big fella wasn't set up. It was a positioning mistake by Morecraft. Stepping in with his arm extended. Barry knocked his dick in the dirt. It was cool. I cheered, but even as one of Pats biggests fans im not blind enough to label that fight of the night.(props to Morecraft for continuing to improve his physique I now the "bitch tits" comments probably didn't feel nice lol)

Easton was to linear, with very poor foot work. Had a chin made of iron (IDK how hard 135lb'ers hit) but his foot work was poor. He walked after his opponent without ever trying to cut off the angles. Still fight of the night in my opinion but your giving Easton way to much credit and not even acknowledging the fact that "papa" was using the octagon to his advantage and delivered the more effecting striking In both rounds 1 and 3. I could have seen the fight going either way, but I personally don't believe that "octagon control" outweighs effective striking. The take downs and control he exerted in the second round did, but he didn't win rounds 1 or 3 in my opinion. They both deserved FOTN IMHO.

Neer v Bang was my favorite fight if the night. It was the exact opposite of Barry v Morecraft.
