    Unbelievable, Joe Schilling gets knocked out again by Hisaki Kato. And with only one second left in the round. I still can’t see how that one judge awarded Rampage Jackson that 1st round when Rampage Jackson got taken down twice and spent the majority of the 1st round on his back. MMA never ever needs judges like that. And guess what states Athletic Commissions are going to do about it? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NOT EVER. Again, I hated to see Ruthless Rebecca Ruth lose to Ilima MacFarlane with that grinding style. When fighting someone who is displaying that style, be patient, and play the position game with them up against the cage, and throw short elbows over and over again, and throw short body shots over and over again. If that fighter wants to grind it out, then let them pay for it. Anyway, congratulations to Ilima MacFarlane and it looks like she is on a collision course with Anastasia Yankova for the Bellator Flyweight Title. I still can’t believe that Joe Schilling got so careless at the end of that 2nd round leaving his hands down and looking for a knockout. Justin Lawrence put Isao Kobayashi to sleep with that punch, wow!
