    Good first round. I’m glad this is on spike

  • packmaster

    I think this is going to be a good fight. Being friends they both know what the other brings to the cage, so let’s just get in there and fight! No feeling out period!

  • packmaster

    Simpson has a chin! That was a bomb!

  • Lord Abortion

    Pretty sure my dead grandma felt that punch… Simpson didn’t though!

  • Deathexplosion

    he’s got the chin and the wrestling part down, now he just needs some striking and some cardio.

  • packmaster

    Nice ending! 30-27 Munoz?

  • reggiethereckless

    Munoz vs a returning Alan Belcher. That’s a match I’d like to see

  • reggiethereckless

    This fight has been greatly overlooked in the heat of all of the rampage/machida controversy. I think it deserved fotn more than George S vs Lauzon
