As is becoming the norm with Fight Night events, lots of mid-level fighters but no big stars.  Bader vs Saint Preux should be good. The co-main has Gray Maynard vs Ross Pearson, and Maynard needs a win badly, after suffering first round knockouts in his last two fights.  The prelims include interesting fights, with Zach Makovsky vs Jussier Formiga and Sara McMahon vs Lauren Murphy.

No Fight Pass prelims, just the televised prelims at 8 PM ET on Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV).

For those of you bored in the afternoon, there's also a Cage Warriors event out of Dublin, Ireland.

Prelims stream on Facebook at 2:45 PM ET here: 2 090072144502?sk=app_113165568775888

Main card at 4 PM ET at MMA Junkie here:

That was a fast sub
2014-08-16 04:36:10 PM  
Not sure that I like the new Cage Warrior "bounty" system.  It encourages sloppy fighting.
2014-08-16 05:04:13 PM  
Moore's left glove is getting bloody from landing on Clarkson's face so often.

1) Everybody post your Tapology predictions (let's see fWc steal THIS)
2) Complain about too many events to give a crap
3) The unknowns and mid carders put on a better show than the big name guys
6) Too soon
7) Old MMA vs new MMA snobbery
8) I could totally beat both these guys
11) My predictions all suck
12) My predictions are dead on
15) Does anyone have a link to the post fight presser
16) I can't believe ____ got fired but they're keeping this guy
18) Slow mo replay of nutshot from 4 different camera angles
19) Why aren't there ring dudes for the girl fights
20) Pointless trolling of people that are never in these threads
21) I (allegedly)make more money than you therefor your opinions are invalid
24) The biggest fight of the night doesn't matter because neither of these guys has a prayer of beating _____
25) What the fark kind of walkout music is THAT ?
26) The prelim fights were all better than the main card
27) The presser was more exciting than the main card
28) That fight in the stands was more exiting than the main card
29) Dana drops the F-bomb. Drink. (fFc is not responsible for acute cirrhosis)
32) What the fark fight are the judges watching ?
33) Cecil Peoples is the devil
34) That fight was stopped too soon
35) That fight should have been stopped sooner
37) Hork inducing replays of torture pr0n-esque attempted eye removal
38) Boob kick

Nice rear naked choke to end the Cage Warriors event

Funny as hell... at -superhero-guy-phoenix-jones-getting-tazed-after-the-ice-bucket-challe nge

Some of you may remember this guy from when he fought at a low-level event that streamed after a UFC event several months ago.  The ice bucket challenge is kind of silly, but watching him twitch from the taser is funny.

His brother is Caros Fodor, who had several Strikeforce fights, and one UFC fight last year.

prelims are live

Fighting Robot action.
2014-08-16 08:04:15 PM  
I think Shawn Jordan is wider than he is tall
2014-08-16 08:05:34 PM  
I doubt these guys would get near the UFC a few years ago
2014-08-16 08:09:07 PM  
Steelers are dismantling the Bills.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
2014-08-16 08:10:57 PM  
Kind of a toss-up.  I'll go 10-9 Saentz
2014-08-16 08:17:14 PM  
10-9 Saenz.  20-18
2014-08-16 08:23:28 PM  
10-9 Saenz.  30-27
2014-08-16 08:26:23 PM  
I want Bader to lose, damnit.
2014-08-16 08:29:59 PM  
Bader has the fraternity-bro-dumb jock vibe going on very strong, but he is a pretty damn good fighter
2014-08-16 08:31:58 PM  
All my streams are showing cricket stuff.  The only that shows UFC is grainy as balls.
2014-08-16 08:35:25 PM  
in late and starting slow...

What was I thinking picking Alvey.  They don't look in the same league
2014-08-16 08:39:52 PM  
Just caught this new article.  Apparently Koppenhaver had a gun when caught and got tasered. #! bENbyG

/I want gifs of the tasing, dammit

Klippoklondike: Bader has the fraternity-bro-dumb jock vibe going on very strong, but he is a pretty damn good fighter

I really enjoy watching him get punched in the face.
2014-08-16 08:45:13 PM  
Who is the redhead in the readhead's corner?
2014-08-16 08:45:46 PM  
10-9 Kong
2014-08-16 08:46:08 PM  

Testiclaw: Who is the redhead in the readhead's corner?

She looked preggers.

stevenrushing: What was I thinking picking Alvey.  They don't look in the same league

UK fighters are usually poor picks unless facing other western Europeans. Alvey's plan might be wait for Watson to gas.
2014-08-16 08:46:47 PM  

Testiclaw: Who is the redhead in the readhead's corner?

McKey Sullivan, Alvey's wife (and former America's Top Model Winner)
2014-08-16 08:48:17 PM  

Testiclaw: All my streams are showing cricket stuff.  The only that shows UFC is grainy as balls.

I'm in the Firstrow(usa) but also eu.  Not the best quality but I'm definitely getting my money's worth.
2014-08-16 08:52:02 PM  
10-9 Watson.  20-18
2014-08-16 08:57:15 PM  
Alvey finally got his shiat together in round 3 but too little too late.
2014-08-16 08:57:38 PM  
If either of these guys had wrestling skills this would have been over in the second round.
2014-08-16 08:58:16 PM  
10-9 Alvey.  29-28 Watson
2014-08-16 08:59:21 PM  
"What a great fight John!"

Really?  Maybe a good round, not a great fight...
2014-08-16 09:14:30 PM  
2014-08-16 09:15:00 PM  
Close. 10-9 McMann, but Murphy damn near took the round from the bottom
2014-08-16 09:20:03 PM  
McMAN totally has dude arms.
2014-08-16 09:21:37 PM  
10-9 McMann, 20-18, but she really is cutting it close by not mounting much offense when in control so much of the round
2014-08-16 09:26:52 PM  
10-9 Murphy. 29-28 McMann
2014-08-16 09:27:15 PM  

callmeox: McMAN totally has dude arms.

I don't know about dude arms, but definitely dude shoulders.
2014-08-16 09:27:33 PM  

callmeox: McMAN totally has dude arms.

And sharp knees. I would not hit it.
2014-08-16 09:27:36 PM  
Wrestler girl has wrestler skills, but that's it.

She doesn't protect her face, neck or limbs.

She doesn't have any positional striking.

But she has a purple thong, so there's that.
2014-08-16 09:28:39 PM  
I'm thinking they are going to give it to McMann via split.  Commentators making it look closer than it is with the striking stats, or do you think the strikes from the bottom should mean more than they historically have?
2014-08-16 09:29:00 PM  
If that was a dude fight they would still be booing.
2014-08-16 09:29:08 PM  
Wrong decision.

This takedown garbage is annoying.
2014-08-16 09:29:36 PM  
Gonna need a whole lot more offense than that if she wants another shot at Ronda
2014-08-16 09:30:13 PM  
Wow, someone gave Murphy one of the first two. That's not objectively awful, but it's pretty rare to give a round for striking off your back.
