Completely agree Vemola/Caio should have won some type of award. This card was really incredible! The quality of fighting was unbelievable. And the amount of utter heart was ridiculous! Raphael Assuncao suffered a deep cut that had blood spurting out so bad, I thought the ref might halt the fight to take a look, and Assuncao still maintained control and secured the armbar. Caio Magalhaes was practically demolished in the first round but never quit, kept fighting in an absolute war and hooked in the rear naked choke that had the crowd delirious! And that was just the undercard! And how wonderful was it to hear the story about Leonardo Santos befriending a young kid outside his home gym, giving him money every now and then, only to have that kid turn out to be The Great Jose Aldo! Santos jumping the octagon post fight to search for Aldo was the moment of the night! Incredible card!!

This is the first time Thiago has ever used kicks lol.I'd say his kicks are coming along, but still needs some workAlso, the KO was nice for Thiago but it really wasnt that great of a pure KO. It was kind of weak actuallyNice win for Thiago. Thiago is still an average tier fighter. He will continue to get big wins gere and there but will always come up short against a truly elite opponent

Thiago's KO was awesome!!! He looked really good and in great shape (no homo), it was good to see him win by KO fashion again. I was excited to see him back to using his kicks.Lets just hope his piss test comes out clean!!!

Also, after seeing how bad werdum looks in his striking when he isn't the one going forward I don't think he has anything for Cain. Werdum sure as hell won't have the speed advantage and he isn't taking Cain down. Not to mention his cardio didn't look that great...I used to think a fight between these two would be competitive, but not anymore.

I can't tell is cavalcante is not as good as we thought or if he just didn't train for this fight. I know they set a pretty good clip but the guy gassed in 3 minutes...
