    For years I’ve listened to the fan boys and hater talk about Jesse Arnett and josh hill… Arnett,s west coast fans trashing josh and cheeping how he would destroy him… and joshs fans saying josh would do the same to Jesse…well the fight finally happened… and what is on the site ??? Absolutely nothing …I don’t know if top mma news has had a falling out with tko or what … but as a fan of both fighters I think something should have been posted … after all your site has them ranked 2&3…., anyhow just my 2 cents….where’s big win and robin black when you need them…

    I couldn’t agree more. This site was my go to for years. Now we don’t focus on any other MMA then Canada MMA, they don’t even post weigh in results from tko let alone the results from the actual fights.

    The consensus #1 and #2 135ers in Canada outside the UFC and not one thing mentioned? It was actually a really good fight, Arnett coming forward like he usually does and owning octagon control. Then in the 2nd the overaggressive Arnett got caught, the ref made a huge mistake allowing unnecessary damage to occur resulting in a bigger knockout.

    Then Lyndon Whitlock who was in the corner of Josh Hill and should have been celebrating the WIN for his teammate actually took time to call out the refs and the commission because of the unnecessary damage Anrett took and “defending” the safety of the “Opposition” fighter.

    How any of this isn’t posted on this site is mind boggling and ridiculously sad.

    A great fight card overall. Gane looks to be special, Lapilus is the real deal and Masson-Wong met her match as Bohm easily looks UFC ready.

    TKO takeaways:

    One of the latest and most egregious stoppages in mma history with the Arnett fight.

    Robin Black and other dudes commentary that.. and I’m not kidding… might not have featured any colour commentary the entire show.. just “the mentality of a fighter” crap lol. Bizarre

    Gane, lapilus and hill should be in the show.

    Firas snapping at Vogel in the cage for the illegal upkicks but stumbling over his words and aggressively yelling that “it was an accident, you fucking piece of shit” when he clearly meant it “wasn’t an accident”

    All in all. I was entertained

    Sorry guys… I dropped the ball on TKO results, I was at Unified on Friday night and straight back to work Saturday! I’m not able to post from work anymore as they have the site blocked! I should’ve gotten the results up but I just didn’t have the time! Like I’ve said, this site is just me now and I’m trying to keep up I just don’t always have the time!
