    Wow this is FOTN. Rooting for Masvidal he looked really sharp against Healy

    Likely the Headliner of the FS1 prelims , solid

    Erin19 will probably shit all over this fight though saying that it should headline the fightpass prelims instead and that Fox 12 sucks asses.

    Watch out, he'll demand an apology from you like he did to me.

    I hope/want this to be on the main card to give Daron some more exposure, but you're probably right about the FS 1 headliner.

    They can sell it as TKD vs boxing. I've only seen Cruickshank's last fight but he looked pretty good in it and if he wins this fight with some fancy kicks or something I foresee a lot of TKD hype on here.

    Hmmm, I'd like to confidently pick Masvidal but that Koch fight really made me start watching Daron

    This is a solid fight. I do worry it'll be the fourth main card fight which would push Rumble vs. Nog to the main event. I'm still holding out hope this card gets a big main event but I don't see it happening.

    This scrap will be exciting anyway.

    I like Cruickshank, but I honestly thought he was going to get smoked by Koch - boy how wrong was I? I initially get the same feeling hearing this match up, but who knows? Masvidal ate a face-full of spinning shit against Khabilov, but he also hasn't been finished in like 6 years.

    Really, really interesting fight, and probably FOTN to boot.

    Now that is some good fight making! It's kinda sad, because this is the type of fight that no casual fan would be interested in. "Whose Cruickshank? What's a Masvidal?" And yet it's fights like this that keep the hardcore fans addicted.

    Excellent match up. Cruikshank's victory over Koch definitely raised his stock but Masvidal may be too experienced and well-rounded for him. I'm excited either way.

    Sick fight, love it. Wouldve preferred Nate Diaz, but oh well - maybe Nate vs. Michael Johnson on the LA card in August!

    EDIT - MJ vs. Thomson same card, haha, nevermind.
