And THEN in the next fight Leslie Smith's ear fucken exploded. Punch to the ear and BOOM it popped. Blood everywhere. Ear split in two and hanging off. Eye d. Ear. These were the two grossest awesomest best back-to-back fights ever.
Another dude looked like he pooped himself later but I'm willing to believe that was water. But the first dude? Totally pooped himself. Don't wear blue shorts.

So yeah. The main event was fun as Hunt looked really good for about 7 minutes, right up until the point where he got kneed real good and it was over. I was sad. I wanted him to win. Uh, what else... Gastellum was real impressive. I think Montano was maybe an exotico. And that one guy pooped himself.
The build-up to these events was monumental. You would look forward to these bouts for weeks. Without internet and social networking, these bouts were tremendously popular and polarizing. For the record, I was a Frazier backer.
