UFC posted a gif of Conor going "ok, ok" after Goddard yelled at him. Even after that you could still see him wandering around the outside of the cage but instead of shouting advice to Lobov he was just doing the Chuck Liddell cocaine shadow boxing.

189's undercard was pretty forgettable outside of the excellent Matt Brown-Dirty Bird fight

The main card is probably the best of all time, though

The Blaydes fight should get some kind of...thing for weirdest finish. I mean, there's a bad ref gently caress up, a guy taking a dive, then giving up, and we somehow ended up with the correct result

Ref incompetence: Keith Peterson stops the action to check on Anthony Pettis' cut while Pettis is attempting to lock up a triangle.

e: Watched it again and it wasn't that bad, Pettis was not actually close when the ref stepped in.

That was actually a pretty good bit of reffing from my view. There was so much blood everywhere, no submissions were ever going to be had because it was like wrestling in a grease pit. Keith saw that Pettis was half-blind from his own blood, cleaned it up, and then instead of restarting on the feet, he made him restart on his back again with his opponent in guard near the center of the cage, where they were.
