UFC Fight Night 65 had plenty of finishes, and some questionable refereeing and cornering in the main event.
Stipe Miocic overwhelmed Mark Hunt to get the fifth-round TKo even though it could have been over arguably much sooner. Robert Whittaker had an impressive KO in the co-main event and Bec Rawlings and Alex Chambers also had impressive finishes.
See how the pros reacted to all the chaos in Australia below.
Tough Main Event to Watch?
That was fun.— Stipe Miocic (@stipemiocicufc) May 10, 2015
Miocic's 361 total strikes to Hunt's 46 represents the most lopsided strike differential (315) in UFC history.— Dana White (@danawhite) May 10, 2015
Nobody can ever question the heart of Mark Hunt. But we can definitely question the refs officiating skills.— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) May 10, 2015
Stipe proved his call for a tittle run...while the ref is not worth his weight in gold or silver. #prideneverKNOWShowtodie— The Spartan (@EliasTheodorou) May 10, 2015
Why did Hunts corner say "You're doing good, stay strong"— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) May 10, 2015
Does his corner have a towel? C'mon.— Coach (@CMPunk) May 10, 2015
Apparently the ref told them in the locker room that he wouldn't stop the fight while both guys still had a pulse. #UFCAdelaide— Cathal Pendred (@Pendred) May 10, 2015
WOW!!!! Dr let it go!!!? WOW— Dana White (@danawhite) May 10, 2015
Mark Hunt is the polynesian demigod of violence and he should have a shrine built for him.— Andre Fili (@TouchyFili) May 10, 2015
Not sure what the point of this continuing is at this stage. He actually looks a different nationality at this stage.— Coach Kavanagh (@John_Kavanagh) May 10, 2015
The first 10-5 round in MMA history #UFCadelaide— Michael Chandler (@MikeChandlerMMA) May 10, 2015
Stipe rules. Hunt rules. Hunt is super tough. Stipe is relentless.— Coach (@CMPunk) May 10, 2015
A cornered Fox is more dangerous than a jackal. Hunts still in this! #UFCAdelaide— Angela Hill (@AngieOverkill) May 10, 2015
That was looking like dan Severn vs tank abott for a second. #UFCAdelaide— Justin Buchholz (@JustinBuchholz) May 10, 2015
Given that Whittaker has Mortal Kombat on his trunks, safe to say that was a flawless victory with a fatality. #UFCAdelaide— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) May 10, 2015
WOW!!! Whitaker is LEGIT!!!! Looks better every fight. @UFCFightPass— Dana White (@danawhite) May 10, 2015
I wouldn't bet against Tavares but Robert Whittaker sure proved me wrong. Great left hooks #UFCFIGHTPASS— Cub Swanson (@CubSwanson) May 10, 2015
185 is where Whittaker belongs! #UFCAdelaide— Cathal Pendred (@Pendred) May 10, 2015
