Quick thoughts: - Overeem should have gone for the GnP instead of that choke after the knockdown. - Overeem accusing Miocic of a Ninja-Tap was stupid. lol - Apparently Edmond (from Browne's corner) is an ass, but there should be consequences for Werdum kicking him. I was baffled when Rogan didn't even mention it in the post-fight interview. - Kinda feel bad for CM Punk. Sure he got paid well, but stepping into the ring/octagon is a scary thing and the hate for him was strong. Mickey Gall was classy though, despite all the f-bombs. lol
For the people that missed it, this happened after the Werdum/Browne fight:
apparently fabers eye poke on rivera is pretty bad... like really bad...
just pulled this quote from BK not sure what article it came from.
Rivera was poked in the right eye by Urijah Faber in the third round of his unanimous decision victory at UFC 203 in Cleveland. Rivera went right to the hospital after the fight and was released early Sunday morning. He told MMA Fighting that doctors informed him he has a crack behind his retina and a scratch on the white of his eye. One doctor said she was not sure if or when he'll get full vision back, Rivera said.
"I have no vision [in the eye] right now," Rivera said. "Everything is a blur. But at least I'm not in pain anymore. I was in so much pain last night, like someone was constantly pushing my eye ball in."
