    I thought it was going to be dog shit but then I looked at the lineup and was positively surprised. Maybe great is an overstatement for some but I find a lot of interesting and fun matchups.


    Robbie Lawler vs Rafael dos Anjos
    - No need to explain why this is a great matchup

    Ricardo Lamas vs Josh Emmett

    - Lamas coming off two great finishes, he is world class. Lets see how he deals with Emmet and what Emmet's 2nd return fight to featherweight will look like. Probably more confidence in his cardio this time around. Great fight.

    Santiago Ponzinibbio vs Mike Perry
    - Oh boy

    Glover Texeira vs Misha Cirkunov
    - Yes please. Lets see how Misha comes back as well after that brutal KO loss to No Time


    Preliminary Card (Fox Sports 1)

    Jan Blachowicz vs Jared Cannonier
    - I love Cannonier on the feet, slick movement. Hopefully this stays standing. Bombs away!!

    Julian Marquez vs Darren Stewart
    - Don't know or care too much.

    Chad Laprise vs Galore Bofando
    - Bofando coming off his crazy KO Slam of Charlie Ward. Laprise always exciting and super technical.

    Tim Eliott vs Pietro Menga
    - Anytime Tim is in there, chaos ensues.

    John Makdessi vs Abel Trujillo
    - If Trujillo can take Makdessi down and keep him there he will probably gas later and a crazy standup fight may very well take place. He's wild on his feet and Makdessi is nasty.

    Alessio Di Chirico vs Oluwale Bamgbose
    - Neither of these guys fights go the distance very often.


    Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass)

    Jordan Mein vs Erick Silva
    - The two hottest up n' coming prospects in the UFC. LOL. Will be entertaining for sure though.

    Nordine Taleb vs Danny Roberts
    - Starting off with a bang. Nice technical striking affair hopefully

    It's also great because there's no WMMA on the card.

    Really looking forward to the Mein vs Silva fight. Excited to see what Silva can do, exciting young fighter, potential future champ!

    Yes it is.

    No WMMA.

    Bofando vs Laprise is a great fight btw, many people are sleeping on this one.

    Havn't paid any attention to it because I assumed it was going to be a shit show because most shows these days are shit shows, especially if they're not PPV's.

    Nothing wrong with keeping people up to date on upcoming fights. Honestly, I had no idea Mike Perry and Glover Texiera were on the card.

    I'm glad I saw this thread.

    Hmm.. working? taking care of daily responsibilities where memorizing booked fights four months ago to a date isn't as prioritized?

    I would laugh my ass off if he does the same thing to Laprise. But yeah, let's see what he can do against a fairly well-rounded and experienced guy like Laprise. Bofando is just 5-1 or 6-1 or something, so considering that, they really gave him a tough nut to crack.

    I am also looking forward to seeing more of his game.

    One thing I do know about him is Bofando also has amazing kicks.
