Observations from My Couch: Bellator 68

-Color me shocked at Anthony Leone beating Claudio Ledesma.  For a while now Leone hasn't been living up to potential, while Ledesma has been kicking ass and taking names.  But damn did Leone out-work and out-fight him.

-Aung La Nsang has always seemed like he had the potential to deliver a beating, and boy was that a beating delivered to Jesus Martinez.  Martinez is without question a tough cat - which makes Nsang's win all the more impressive.

-Jacob Kirwan is deadly with his guillotine.  Everything else, not so much.

-Tough break for Waachim Spiritwolf on that cut-stoppage, as he was wrecking Marius Zaromskis.  However, in no way, shape or form do I question that stoppage.  Dr. Sherry Wulkan was the one who waved the bout off, and she's been a ringside physician for more MMA bouts than 99.9% of the world has even read about on the Internet.

-Marcin Held is so adorable going for those knee-destroying heelhooks.  He's like a koala bear, only with more jiu-jitsu.

-Marcos Galvao, it is your time.  Make the most of it.

-Always a bridesmaid, never a bride, eh Marlon Sandro?  On the flip side, whoo-wee is Daniel Straus a seasoned ass-kicker now.
