    Recap: Aoki is still the submission king, it took him 10 secs to grab that submission. Manhoef is fun to watch, has no ground game. Mousasi made it look to easy, still needs work on his wrestling.

    the guillotine is jake o'brien's nemesis. you would think he would learn after being choked out with the guillotine before to stop leaving his neck out like that when he does for the takedown.

    I was very disappointed in the way Aoki vs. Kawajiri & Mousasi vs. O'brien played out. Good finishes, but we didn't learn anything that we didn't already know.

    Great sub by Aoki, but we didn't get to see anything that would tell us whether he'd fair any better in a rematch with Gilbert Melendez. Personally, I was hoping to see Kawajiri win, so that we could see Kawajiri vs. Melendez.

    I wanted to see Mousasi fight off multiple takedown defenses to see if his wrestling has indeed improved, but didn't get to see that either.
