R3 Something nobody IIRC talked about but should is the inadvertent headbutt right at the beginning of R3. They collide heads and IMO this was the main reason Uberroid got rocked.
Happy Silva got the win but JFC, this is going to be scrutinized like crazy when people realize Alistair was initially rocked from a headbutt.
I haven't seen anyone mention the headbutt and I must have missed it.
