    Thanks, I was on twitter too asking about the seating. My issue was the oresale code wouldn't work on the Ticketmaster App but it worked on the website for me.

    Interesting fight. I knew Kayla wasn't going to be making 145 pounds. I hope she can figure it out eventually though, but it will likely be a grueling cut.

    No, it won't.
    Kayla can easily make 145.
    She's walking around at 160~ lbs, 15 lbs is a easy cut to anyone.
    She was going to make her debut at 145 but Helwani suggested otherwise and said there's no point to "make things harder" so apparently it changed her mind, but that's not a issue at all.

    damn Nijem got Foster, he's going to have a tough time winning that one, and I had him as a potential favourite depending on how he was matched. Looking forward to Halsey vs Rama ... OH YES!

    Dan Spohn ... was he on the contender series?

    I think Tavares' chin is worse than Magalhaes' currently, but does Watley possess knockout power @Thesnake101 ? I don't remember him.

    Brooks really fell into a good thing if these guys really get the million dollar prize

    Their lightweight division will be fun to watch. 205 is pretty rough, but a few solid dudes.

    - Firmino vs Brooks is such a good match-up. Firmino wins if UFC-Brooks shows up. It's a pick-em fight if Bellator-Brooks returns
    - I don't think O'Connell will have a very exciting fight against Honny Markes. LnP fight. Same for the Brandon Halsey fight.
    - Rooting for Bazagit Atajev simply because he's been around forever.
    - Only thing I know about Jason Butcher is that he got subbed by Barncat in Bellator. I guess I'll root for him

    Can't wait to see what the WW/MW card will bring.

    Watley is more of a volume kind of guy, but he does have some pop to his punches, and like you said, Thiago's chin is awful, so I'm expecting an early finish there. Things will get interesting if it hits the floor though.

    I'm skeptical. She didn't look anywhere near 160 pounds in her previous interviews and tv appearances. Maybe she slimmed down now that her debut is closer and she has been training longer. The fact that she is making her debut at 155 pounds does not lend credence to the idea that making 145 pounds will be easy. It would be nice to see, especially now that the UFC is trying to build a featherweight division in their next season of TUF.

    Not a bad card in all fairness, some decent fights.

    Sorry but i prefer to trust in what she said (that she was 160 lbs) instead of going by what you think she looked like..

    I don't think she is nearly as big as Megan Anderson, actually i don't even think she would be a big 145er, so yeah she absolutely should be able to make 145. 15/20 lbs is a easy/normal weight cut.

    Nice main and co-main.
    Sean O'Connell's had quite a few FOTN's.
    Thiago Tavares is real solid and could win the whole thing.
    Plus always curious to see what Vinny Magalhaes does.

    I like the card more than PFL 1.
