I would call the Dern/Nicolini match world class as well. Maybe a little too much 50/50, but it was a war and they really got after it! (also, shouldn't have been a draw.)
I sincerely hope Mitrione beats the living hell out of Brendan Schaub. That performance was embarrassing. Someone should take away his brown belt and bust his ass back down to blue or white belt.
dern/nicolini was far greater than the stall fest of braulio with the foot on lapel grip. that was the definition of stall if I've ever seen it. foot on lapel for 18 minutes is not submission only in spirit nor in practice.
