    Thought Gomez got screwed there. Kinda glad he didn't win though, because I pussied out at the last moment and decided not to bet on him.

    Bevon takes my vote. I Like Aguilar but he can have lackluster performances sometimes.

    I've been watching her in LFA and she's definitely a star on the rise, even if she flubs her lines a little. 4-0 in LFA with some impressive performances for a young kid.

    Thought he might have too. Aguilar deserved the win by it being that close, better resume, and moving up a weight class to take it.

    Would have been pissed if they made Aguilar jump through these hoops and lose due to a few takedowns from a heavier opponent.

    Jordan Espinosa gets it, that's great. And then the second is Bevon Lewis. Matchmakers said pick one, Dana said nah we'll take both.

    I've seen I think 2 of her fights, and she definitely has some fighting skills, especially at 20. She just spoke really monotone in that interview.

    Shocked Aguilar wasn't signed even with the split decision.

    15-1, 3 title defenses in LFA, Short notice up a weight class in the main event.

    What more do they need to see?

    Its Dana man.

    He probably isn't even aware of those facts.

    Idk. I feel like they will lowkey sign him regardless, they just want to keep the impression alive that you have to get a finish to keep the fights on the show exciting.

    So Aguilar didn’t do well? Jw because he’s from my town. I’ve met him, he gets his tattoos done at my buddy’s tattoo shop.

    Props to Dana for signing someone with the last name Espinosa.

    He's really matured.

    He fought down to his competition, it seemed. I've seen him have much better performances before, either he was nervous from competing in front of Dana or Gomez is better than we expected. It was a close split decision some people thought he lost. Then again, Bisping was talking about Gomez like he was the next Khabib (that actually happened). Aguilar also fought on short notice up a weight class. I still think we'll see him as a short notice replacement in the next few months.

    I’ve only seen him fight once and it was when he got KOd by Leonard. I told him that when I met him too <45>. He was cool though, he still let me take a pic holding his belt. Unfortunately I lost that pic a couple phones ago.
