Lots of sudden violence occurred at UFC Fight Night in Oklahoma including a big win for Rafael dos Anjos over Benson Henderson. What did we learn in retrospect?
Thanks for the awful advice. Benson Henderson by Decision? Seriously? dos Anjos straight gilded him and his toothpick, Khal Drogo style. What are you looking at me for? I didn't pick Henderson.
