The event from Macau starts very early, with prelims at 6 AM ET, and the main card at 9 AM ET, both on Fight Pass.  It should be up for viewing after-the-fact on Fight Pass not long after the live stream ends, so you can watch at your convenience if you don't feel like being up early for the live showing.  It's geared toward the emerging Asian market, so it's heavy on Asian fighters that aren't as well known in the States.

There are more familiar names on the evening event from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
One Fight Pass prelim at 7:30 PM ET
Four televised prelims at 8 PM ET on Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)
The six-fight main card at 10 PM ET on Fox Sports 1

Decent.  Except for the crazy judging.  I guess it's not surprising coming from China.

Great TKO by Woodley. I hate that spinning shiat and Kim got burned by trying to throw it.

Wow, nine comments for the early morning card. I see I wasn't the only one who slept through it. Did Bisping beat Le?
 
2014-08-23 10:52:17 AM  
Can't see how Li can mount much more offence. He's gassing. Bisping is pretty tired too though.

Just now.
 
2014-08-23 10:55:26 AM  
Yeah, Bisping just took out Le in the 4th (calling him Li? It's early, sue me.). TKO.

Too bad this card was so early in the morning, there were some decent fights.

Cung Le looks like a Street Fighter 2 Game Over screen now.
 
2014-08-23 11:10:32 AM  
Bisping wants the title?  If he can't handle the grappling of Tim Kennedy then he can't handle the grappling of Weidman.

Bisping is pretty good, but Weidman is a bad matchup for him.
 
2014-08-23 11:22:40 AM  
Bisping looked good today because Le isn't that good either.

Bisping isn't fighting for the title any time soon, but since Weidman has graciously kicked Silva's ass twice, I think there's hope that we can see Bisping fight Silva.

I always defend Bisping in threads his name comes up in, but it's disappointing to see Le TKO'd. I guess because he's really not UFC material due to his age one-dimensional game, it kind of seems like he's an underdog no matter who he fights. That plus his flashy style and his apparently humble personality make me want to root for him.

After being up all night, I decided to not stay up for the live showing. Time to grab some lunch and watch the replay. (While not reading the spoilers above)

So strange to hear Goldberg with Kenny, instead of Rogan.

I had the first fight 29-28 Dudieva,  Looks like the soon to be unemployed Phillips didn't agree:

Always a good idea to call your employer corrupt when they have independent judges.  My take is that while Phillips did well on the ground with positioning, she didn't do much with her top control, and lost the standup badly. It was close and a case can be made for Phillips taking it, but a rant like that is being a sore loser.

If Dana really hated her, he'd give her an immediate title shot.  No judges required for that one.

Actually the UFC did pick the judges because they are the governing body for MMA in Macau. Dana White even said during the post fight press conference that he told one of the judges to sit out the rest of the fights after two bouts because he was doing a bad job and then had an alternate judge sit on for the rest of the matches.

The nice thing about watching the replays of these early morning fights (other than getting to sleep, of course) is that you can skip all the filler.

By the way, who here also has Fight Pass?  I was skeptical about it at first, but now I'm loving it, especially with Invicta signing up to air their events on Fight Pass.

I have it. I was resistant to the subscription model and crappy interface at first (partly due to my crappy TV interface). However, they hooked me with a free month when there was a card coming up. I'd get a lot more use out of it if I didn't have to young kids, but the fight library is pretty f'ing cool. I was disappointed to find that I couldn't watch the prelims on the app last week because they were exclusive to Fuel/FS2 in my region.

Yeah, reading that now.  Not sure I agree with Dana's move.  On one level, yeah, the judge in question had some pretty strange scorecards (both 30-27), but once assigned it looks bad to be swapping judges.  If the UFC has to act as its own athletic commission in places that don't have them, it has to be REALLY scrupulous to avoid looking like it is trying to influence the scores.  Just have to be careful to use respected judges and abide by their decisions, I guess.  Maybe have a pool and have them chosen randomly next time.

Bisping beat the crap out of Cung Le.  Le remained dangerous and landed the occasional power shot, but Bisping just picked him apart otherwise.

Uh oh.  Things could be awkward for tonight's Jordan Mein Fight.  His father is banned from cornering him after being arrested for alleged sexual assault.

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Lee-Mein-Banned-from-UFC-Fight-Nigh t- Tulsa-Following-Arrest-for-Alleged-Sexual-Assault-72357

The UFC statement from the article:


"We were made aware that James Lee Mein, father of UFC competitor Jordan Mein, was arrested on allegations of felony sexual assault," the statement reads. "Mr. Mein is accused of sexually assaulting a housekeeper at the UFC's host hotel in Tulsa, Okla. The UFC finds the allegations against Mr. Mein deplorable, and we fully support local law enforcement in its investigation. The UFC is also prohibiting Mr. Mein from attending tonight's event should he post bail. Jordan Mein will remain on tonight's card."

Not wise to be diddling the maid, if it did in fact happen as alleged.
 
2014-08-23 04:29:52 PM  
Oh, and I see that the judge told to sit out the rest of the night did not score both fights 30-27.  I guess the first source I saw was incorrect and I should have dug deeper before repeating it.

He obviously hasn't seen the internet video of the guy who travels for a living trying to coax hotel maids into giving him a hand thousands of times. Apparently, there is no sex with the hotel maid (unless it's a dude).
