    Ok, so I guess a guy with a fitch game like Castillo gets main event while both heavy hitters like Te Huna and Jimmo gets to stay on preliminary? I'm sorry, but this is just wrong in so many ways.

    You lost all credibility when you said Jimmo is a heavy hitter.

    is is confirmed that Sass vs Castillo is on Fuel and that Jimmo vs Te Huna is on Facebook?

    Not that I agree with this, but there's no way Castillo fights his usual fight vs Sass...I think he might keep it standing instead of getting the TD and initializing the LnP.

    or if Castillo takes Sass down, he's going to have to be damn GOOD on top instead of just being a blanket...

    What are you talking about? Te-Huna vs. Jimmo isn't listed on UFC.com yet. How would you know whether or not it's on the main card? It's a Fuel TV card that has 6 fights, too. There's room for both.

    He's a heavy hitter, he's not a technical striker. There are differences.

    have you watched any jimmo fights TS, other than the perosh fight. because if you had you would know jimmo is not known for heavy hands, in fact his fight with sodojku was close to the worst/most boring fight in all MMA.

    Dude, be honest

    you have seen Jimmo fight for a total of 7 secs right?

    Cuz if you would have seen more from him you'd know that its exactly the opposite. He's a technical striker that almost NEVER goes for the KO. he picks his opponent appart in lackluster standup fights. He's like a boring version of Lyoto in his first UFC fights.

    It is warranted in some instances. The last event had a FOTN which was on Facebook.

    Jimmo vs. Te Huna isn't even listed on UFC.com yet. Even then, Sass vs. Castillo is the 7th listed fight right now. Fuel TV cards have 6 fights on TV. So, it's definitely not on the main card. Te Huna is an entertaining fighter and in the midst of a bit of a promotional push. He won't be on the prelims.

    Honestly, if Te Huna/Jimmo is prelims material when both are tidy contenders at the moment for Castillo/Sass, I dont know what to say.

    Winning fights should get rewarded. If you just lost, you're on the prelims unless you're a huge name or its a fight people have wanted for a while.
