Not training wrestling was Abel's wifes biggest regret.

Well its free.

I think 177 is the worst card I've seen on paper in recent memory, especially because its a PPV.

Dillashaw/Barao... again
Johnson/Cariaso
Baszler/Correia
Castillo/Ferguson
Nijem/Ferreira
Hamilton/Potts
Magomedov/Odoms
Meideiros/Edwards
Brunson/Larkin
Jorgenson/Cejudo


With the quality matchups we get with free cards I can't see paying for some crap like this. Not an intriguing fight in the bunch. Good thing 178 is stacked it'll have to make up for this PPV.

Pretend like it's not there.

Main event will be a good scrap.

Rumble would maul Bader. I actually hope that fight doesn't happen just because I am not enough of an asshole to wish the beating Rumble would put on Bader on a human being.

The card isn't selling in Bangor, Maine.

It could be a good card, but on paper, it looks trash for the most part.
We don't have to see Bader or OSP beating Gus, Jones, or DC. The fact is that the winner deserves a Top 5 fighter. If you look at the Top 10 rankings for LHW, the winner of this fight could very well get a #1 contender fight next.

For the record, I do think both OSP and Bader could beat Gus, and Bader vs DC would be interesting.

The only real opponents for the winner are Anthony Johnson, Rashad Evans and Alexander Gustaffson later this year. Any of those could be a #1 contender fight. Of course, we have no idea how everything will play out, but it's bloody relevant.

If OSP/Bader winner also beats Rashad/AJ/Gus, then you better believe they will have enough hype to make an exciting title fight. Dammit now I am super pumped for this fight.

It's free though. So why does it matter?

Well it's a free card so it's not that bad. Bader vs OSP is a pretty big fight. The winner gets contender status.
