Post fight press conference highlights:
Rory essentially blamed Jake for the lackluster fight. Said he "kept up my end" and said Jake was a counter puncher and that he was not coming in. Said he was doing the right thing and that if he had a few more minutes, he could finished the fight.

Dana said Ellenberger did nothing, but also said that Rory did little. Pointed out that Rory/Jake overshadowed the main event and failed to deliver.

Moraga said he thought he did well in the first round and did not remember Johnson being that aggressive....concussion?

Jake said it was not his night and admitted he failed to pull the trigger. Said Rory was very respectful and said he was disappointed in his own performance.

Johnson tossed out the idea of facing the Batnamweight champ. Said Dana talks about how much money GSP, Silva and Jones could make in superfights and said he is just tossing it out there.

Liz said she never felt in danger in the first round. Jessica had it tight enough that she could be escape, but she was not in danger.

Jorge said he wants to fight in the next 2-3 months and wants a top ten guy. He has respect for Chiesa, said he is tough as hell.

Well while we're complaining about EVERYTHING, Masvidal should have gotten SUB of the night. He was rocked hard and came back with a very slick sub. Plus he sub'd the sub guy. DJ's armbar was nice but Masvidal was better IMO.

Also shocked Lawler didn't get KO but I suppose Melvin's was pretty good. Herman fight definitely deserved FOTN. Those guys looked like they were fighting for their job.
