Really good card for free TV. Phil Davis is getting a lot of hype as a potential challenger to Jon Bones Jones.
Loving the fights on Facebook. Great way for the UFC to allow their fans to see undercard fights.
Garcia\Jung is a rematch of last year's fight of the year.

Looking forward to this free card.

It was a really good night of fights. Jung's submission was a thing of beauty. I wonder if Garcia knew there was only 1 second left in the round when he tapped?
Amir Saddolah continues to improve with every fight. People are hard on him not realizing he's never had a fight outside of the UFC, so he's never had 'non-UFC' competition to gain experience and pad his record with. The guy has a lot of potential.
Johnson is just too bog to be fighting at Welter...which is why he rarely makes weight. Hardy never had a chance. I give him credit for surviving that neck crank. It looked pretty nasty.
Solid, albeit unspectacular win for Davis. I give him credit for adjusting mid fight when Little Nog was stuffing every double leg attempt. He changed to single leg and that was the fight. I'd like to see him face a Forrest Griffin or a Rich Franklin in his next fight.
I didn't get to see much of the Facebook fights except for the Morecraft beat down on McCorkle. With back to back losses to Morecraft and Struve, I wonder if McCorkle is on the chopping block?
Overall, a good night of fights, well worth watching.

I too enjoyed the fights, particularly Garcia against the Korean Zombie. Garcia got owned.
However, I don't think as highly of Saddolah. I think he'll lose again the next time they put him in there against someone halfway decent.

The last 2 fights were boring as hell IMO. The most entertaining bout on the telecast was Sadollah-Johnson.

I didn't see either fight as boring, but admittedly, they are fights I probably wouldn't enjoy as much watching a second or third time. But as they were happening, they were intriguing to me, especially watching Davis adjust in his take down attempts when they were being stuffed early in the fight.
While it wasn't a 'dominant' victory, years from now if Davis does become an elite fighter, you can look back at this fight as a time he answered a serious question and took a big step in his development as a fighter. Having to adjust mid-fight against a proven veteran and pretty damn good fighter like Little Nog was a huge step for Davis, no doubt about it.

I guess that's the positive spin on it. Not how I saw it though.
