    Good fight, If matthews can get it to the ground he should do just fine. I know johnson was a pro boxer but does anyone know how his ground game is? Never seen him fight

    Even tho I'm Canadian, I didn't pay much attention to TUF: Nations.

    Jake looked like a guy with solid potential on the show, though I would've said he wasn't UFC ready yet.

    Curious to see the improvements he's made since.

    Not saying these dudes aren't good, or have potential, but this NZ card is pretty damn weak.

    For fuck's sake, why did the UFC sign Dashon Johnson - his record is filled with "quality opposition".

    Nah, it's because he won 6 fights that Cecil Peoples was refereeing. Seriously though, his opponents are 13-36.

    They should sign Brandon Ropati and Michael Tobin to complete the field.

    They should've stuck Ropati on there to fight Gian Villante when Perosh dropped out.

    Would've been a pretty good backup plan. Instead we have Sean O'Connell. Yeah.
