Gilbert Melendez is arguably the top lightweight fighter in the world and I am glad that this show recognized it. He also came off as a class act tonight when discussing himself, Jorge Masvidal and the two Jakes. I would love to see Jake Shields pull off the upset, but I really doubt that can happen.
It was rare to see Bas choke up when talking about Shawn Tompkins, but it seems like he meant a lot to a lot of people in the business. Hopefully for John Alessio, one of his fighters they really spotlighted, he can use this as an inspiration to keep clawing his way back up the ranks.
