But they failed, so the only alternative is to keep them out of the UFC

Okami has been in the UFC for what, 47 years? And not one of his fights, bar losing to Silva, has been immediately memorable added to the salary he commands, it was easy to see why he was cut. Get over it, the guy had his time in the sun and reached a good level.
Ren you always make the most sense, SD thanks you

Could be an okay fight, two mid-tier heavyweights with a lot of ko victories between them is sure to end in a finish. Don't know why people are having a cry, it'll be on the prelim anyway. I'd rather this then filling up the entire prelim with yet another flyweight fight with a bunch of 5'3 guys from China I've never heard of.

Ruan Potts will be champion.

Superior genetics.

Damn this card is taming its sweet time coming together. Castillo and Ferguson line up as Co-Main at this point, Jeepers.

Really strange to see how much hate Ruan Potts is getting - he's a solid heavyweight out of Africa
