It was a little bit like watching the Olympics: The sport was getting big, but it was also getting slow.
The fighters were getting tired, and the fans were frustrated.
The fights were boring.
But then the lights came on and it was a completely different story.
Here are five takeaways from UFC 201:1.
There were no big names.
It was the opposite of the usual, and there were no standout stars.
The top fighters all had at least one win, but they all struggled.
The main event was just an easy win for Dominick Cruz, but the fight was never really a true test of Cruz’s mettle.
The crowd cheered him on and booed him for a second or two before finally settling down and getting behind him.
He took control in the second round, but Cruz was able to close it out.
Cruz was more than a titleholder, though, and he showed his star power in a knockout of Jose Aldo.
That was a sign that he was ready to make the jump from lightweight to middleweight.
He dominated Aldo for the majority of the fight, but Aldo was just too good.
Cruz’s best chance was to get a takedown and finish the fight with a guillotine.
The third round saw him take a lot of damage from Aldo, but he did a great job of avoiding the takedowns.
His striking was good, and his defense was solid.
But Aldo had been so effective in the past, he was no threat to take Cruz down.
Cruz had his chance and he didn’t take it.2.
There was a lot to like.
Cruz was a fan favorite, but his style was not what you’d call flashy.
He didn’t have the style of Conor McGregor, who has a penchant for flashy and flashy styles.
Cruz has a style that’s focused on technique and submission defense.
He was just a little slower than usual and his fights were not as exciting as McGregor’s.
But he was still an exciting fighter.
The fight was not as flashy as the UFC’s previous main event, but there was something exciting about watching Cruz take down a heavy hitter in his backyard.3.
There are still some holes.
The UFC has been making adjustments to its main event lineup in recent years, but this was not one of them.
The main event wasn’t the best show on cable.
It’s still not the best event on pay-per-view.
But it was the best main event in UFC history.
It would have been a lot more exciting if it was.
And that was all due to the quality of the main event.
There are a lot people out there who want the UFC to make more fights in its new main event format.
They are frustrated with the way the current system works.
They want to see more fighters make it in the Octagon, but those fighters are not necessarily going to be the most exciting fighters.
There’s a huge void there, and it will be interesting to see how it unfolds.
