Just Bleed Report 

Fights that shouldn't go the distance:

  • Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Gilbert Burns shouldn't go to the judges. 80% finish rate vs. 92% finish rate.
  • Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago "Marreta" Santos: 94% finishes vs. 73%.
  • Gunnar Nelson vs. Alex Oliveira: 94% vs. 84%.

Almost all other fights on the card feature at least one fighter with a fairly low finish rate (usually between 50% and 70%, but sometimes much lower .... Theodorou 46%, Joanna Ex-Champ 34%, etc.).  High finish rates don't guarantee finishes of course, but this card could produce lots of decisions. The upside: Not as many minutes between bouts, if they're hoping to keep the card under 7 hours overall.... sorry, looking for the silver lining here....

I had two Jiu Jitsu matches against Olivier Auburn Mercier and trained a bunch with Durango. Both tough as nails. Interested to see how it goes.

Good first fight. They both got after it.

Ref has no idea what's going on though... Hope that was his only fight on this card.
