Awesome fight.

Awesome fighter.

Really is great to watch.

He seems very humble.

Hope he holds onto the title for a while, which i'm sure he will.

Another one for Team Alpha Male.

It was a pitch perfect performance from Dillashaw. Absolute domination.

Cormier was impressive again. I hope he gets a shot at the winner of Jones - Gustafsson II

Anyone else think that Cormier comes across as a total douche? Would love to see him fight Rumble next.

Lawler was superb too, one of the most gifted fighters in the ufc.

An excellent performance from Dillashaw nobody expected that especially that 1st rd knockdown. He fought the right fight and was just to quick, to strong for Barao and showed great footwork & movement, Barao was never in the fight. I cant believe that there is talk of a possible rematch.

Cormier came across a bit of an idiot after the fight but will defo be an interesting fight against Jones, he's clearly very confident as well as being big & strong.

Enjoyed the Lawler fight he's always in good fights.

No one saw that coming! Dillashaw was superb and his 'Dominic Cruz esque' movement had Barao completely clueless.

Pleased for Alpha Male and Ludwig to leave with a championship victory.

Cormier was always beating Henderson but looked impressive doing so. Cormier has a dilemma as it could be 9-12 months before a fight with the Jones/Gus fight is available and that is too long IMO. Agree with Pr4wn that a fight with Johnson would be great.

Lawler is so dangerous at the moment and would gladly see him fight Hendricks again. Perhaps, Brown vs Lawler for the shot to please the fans and guarantee a good fight.

Brown vs Lawler has been announced. Oh yeah!

Back to the weekend - what a great performance by Dillashaw. Those who saw that coming must be few and far between. I've never seen Barao dominated like that - the speed and diversity of strikes from TJ just bamboozled him. Throw in some good power shots and it was a masterclass.

Have to wonder how much that big right took out of Barao in the first - he didn'y look like he wanted much of TJ after that.

I particularly enjoyed TJ's avoidance of, and counter punching from Barao's spinning kicks. He must have trained that, knowing it was a go-to technique when Barao's plan A stops working.

Great stuff.

Cormier rag-dolled Hendo. Didn't enjoy watching it, it was man v boy stuff. The weight disparity, coupled with the age difference, TRT factor... wasn't an impressive win for DC in my book. I think he flatters to deceive. Yes, he put Hendo out eventually, but given his dominance all through he should have ended it sooner.

Back to the first line of this post - Lawler. Did everything necessary against Ellenberger, who's looked pretty disappointing on his last few outings, I think. Dana's said that the winner of Lawler / Brown gets the title shot at Hendricks (but Dana has been known to change his mind).

Too soon for a rematch for Lawler, should he derail the Brown train? Should JH first defence be against the next contender? That said, no-one could argue that Lawler hasn't gone out and earned it.

Great weekend of UFC, and how excited am I for Lawler v Brown?
