    Pretty decent night of fights. Sadly my DVR cut out halfway through the 3rd round of the main event, so I missed the upset split decision being anounced. I had the fight scored one round a piece going into the third, and I had Hayes winning the first half of the third, but it cut out right as Grove started to actually work so I wasn’t sure how the rest of the round went.

    Ivanov impressed the hell out of me in his fight, he’s a tough draw for any of the guys left in the tourny.
    Sparks has nasty power, but I’m curious how well he’ll do in a longer match.
    Prindle didn’t do a ton to impress me but with his size and size he’ll be a handful for anyone, even considering how big the rest of the guys in the field are.

    Even though I want BFC to be successful, it’s hard to be excited for this shit.

    Grove was our only hope against Konrad and sadly his ground game looks to have improved very little – not that it mattered!

    I think Ivanov takes this, then looses to Konrad the way we all know he will.

    I so want Abe Wagner to be good. Damn it.

    thumbs up Guthookd.
