    Yeah a quick turn around for someone who needed eye surgery.

    No loss of visibility but he has a damaged tear duct iirc.

    A lot of sneaky good match-ups to make at 155 with the depth.

    This could be one of them. We'll have to see how it plays out. Dariush is a wicked positional grappler, but that was a boring, although decisive win against the up and coming CDF. That could have been because of the danger CDF creates everywhere. Cruickshank is less dangerous on the ground. So hopefully that prompts Dariush to open up, or it never makes it there and Detroit Superstar shanks him with his foot.

    Will be rooting for Cruickshank. One of the more exciting fighters out there. He has a very cool looking style.

    I'm a big Dariush fan but this is a terrible matchup for him.

    Nah man he just lost his ability to cry. A man like Detroit superstar has no use for such functionality anyway

    Interesting, I thought Cruickshank would be out until at least March, but I like both.... I think Cruickshank will win, but this could look like the Martins vs Cruickshank fight.

    Met Daron a few years back at an event. Couldn't have been a nicer guy, so I always pull for him. Good fight though.

    Good prelim, I'm surprised Cruickshank is back so quickly.
    Dariush has a chance here.
