It's always highly entertaining to watch the smaller guys go at it. You never see a problem with cardio and so many fights end up being Fight of the Night candidates. Cruz and Benavidez had themselves a war. Cruz was really active on the feet and got a few takedowns to seal the deal. Pettis and Roller had an amazing fight that ended with just seconds remaining when Roller tapped to that triangle. That was just amazing. We've been getting so much great MMA action in the past few months that we're getting spoiled. There has to be a letdown at some point but I hope it's not any time soon. Jorgensen earned himself a title shot against Cruz and that's definitely a fight to look forward to. Overall it was yet another great WEC show.
