Wonderman! What is the secret of your power?

Score one for the old dogs at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN event. Not only did Stephen “Wonderman” Thompson emerge victorious over an injured Kevin Holland in the main event, but Clay Guida, Rafeal dos Anjos and Angela Hill also got wins. So that’ll teach these young whippersnappers a thing or two!

Plus, it’s UFC 282 fight week and we are sad to report that Robbie Lawler is out and his fight against Santiago Ponzinibbio is scrapped. Still a pretty fun card though, all things considered. Also, James Krause, what you doin’, baby?
