Tim Elliot was supposed to fight Justin Scoggin's on this card, Scoggin's got hurt and the guy they brought in to replace him was bulking up to make featherweight and couldn't cut past 131 until his body shut down on him. Elliot refused to fight him at a catch-weight and because of that he may not even get paid his show money. WTF.

"Merry Christmas you fuckin' pussy."- Dana, probably.

My gut tells me Robbie is finished as a top guy and is gonna get smashed by a berserker tonight.

I'd go with RDA, Ponzi, and Misha. Obviously Lamas too.

Wow Lamas got put out. Between this, Overeem, and Sterling, people are getting brutally knocked out left and right.

Great night of fights. RDA is quietly entering the conversation for one of the best to ever compete, insane to move up in weight class and run through the competition like he has.

Oh, and he beats Woodley.

You don't give him a shot at all? He's fast, powerful, great chin, great takedown defense, won't get wall and stalled, has the grappling to either get back up or submit if he's taken down. He's a nightmare matchup for Woodley.

Ponzi only won that fight because of the eyepokes. He was getting tagged before that, and all the strikes he used to turn the tide were on that side of Perry's face, namely the left hook.

I thought Robbie had an advantage wall and stalling him. And great chin? Didn’t Eddie Alvarez take his head off? What about the Jeremey Stephens knock out?

The best thing I see from RDA is his stamina at this weight. While Woodley has never had the durability nor chin that Robbie has had it was alarming that RDA couldn't finish him when during the final two rounds when Robbie just looked like a living breathing body bag.

That said I'd give him the best shot of anyone in the current top 5 of beating Woodley just for the fact he's relentless.

He got stopped on his feet against Alvarez and that was right before he had Eddie on the ropes. Stephens if anything took his head off and I'm not going to hold that against him because Stephens is probably one of the biggest power punchers at 155 and under in the history of the sport.
