What a glorious performance from TJ Dillashaw in defense of his bantamweight title at UFC on Fox 16. He took Barao out just like the first time around, only this time he left no doubt about how exactly he did it. Dillashaw was cutting angles on the former champ all night. Landing the bigger harder shots and only there to be hit back on rare occasions. Otherwise, Meisha Tate booked herself a third crack at Ronda Rousey and Edson Barboza and Paul Felder delivered a performance that had all the hardcore fight fans drooling.

But enough from the fans, what did the fighters think? The UFC’s only fighters were watching all the bouts from the sidelines tonight, and here’s all the best, worst, and most public of what they had to say about the action:
