Two weeks made two UFC cards with significant implications. After the madness of UFC 210, UFC Fight Night: Kansas City was steady, solid, sane and awesome. Demetrious 'Mighty Mouse' Johnson tied the UFC record for title defences and reputation as the Pound-for-pound king (ten exclamation points and counting...), Robert Whitaker put himself firmly in the title conversation at middleweight, and Rose Namajunas does the same at women's strawweight. Plus, drama, drama, everywhere! Cormier, Jones, Cyborg!
