One thought on “2016 MMA fight – Anthony Pettis vs Eddie Alvarez – full fight Video UFC FN 81”

  1. In my opinion the 3 rounds were won by Alvarez being round 2 the closer one but never to favor Pettis. Therefore, the judges cards were all wrong, however, two of them just reasonable but the third one useless delivery by a blind judge, or a judge friend of Pettis and/or something else !!!. Alvarez fully deserves the winning since was the only putting the effort in this fight. The fight itself was quite boring.
