I can say I knew you when!

That's Gahan Wilson, one of the best and creepiest cartoonists ever. I'm probably the only one on the forums old enough to remember him.

That eye poke by Cruickshank looked deliberate to me. What'd y'all think? Glad Makdessi won.

How slick was that armbar escape?

Yeah, really impressive debut. Very cool stuff from him, showed a lot of wisdom for his age.

Dan Miller vs. Jordan Mein

Round 1:
Marc-Andre Cote is our referee for this welterweight bout. Miller backs up Mein early with a series of jabs. Mein, making his UFC debut, stays calm and tosses out a straight left. Miller ducks under a right hook then powers Mein to the canvas. Miller looks to pass to half guard, then switches it up, steps over, and locks in a slick armbar. What a transition. Good defense from Mein, who steps over and slowly works his way out. Crazy start to the fight. We're back standing, and Miller staggers Mein with a right. Mein steps into a standing elbow. Body kick cracks into Mein's midsection. Mein paws out his jab, then fires a right hand down the pipe. Huge left hand floors Miller. Mein lets him back up, then cracks him with a looping right. Miller eats a jab, and another one. Right hand from Mein crumbles Miller. Mein unloads everything he's got. Miller in a fetal postion eating shot after shot. And that's all she wrote. Impressive showing by Mein.

Jordan Mein def. Dan Miller via knockout (strikes) 4:42 at round 1.
