    Weird that they make Fili fight so many fellow prospects.

    It should be a wild fight. I'll be rooting for Fili.

    I don't buy the hype. He throws cool looking kicks but otherwise I don't think he's that special. Hopefully I'm proved wrong but I think fili beats him.

    This should be a good scrap - Yair is my initial bet though.

    Ah man sucks they gotta fight each other so early in their careers. I got Fili by submission in the 2nd or 3rd.

    I love it. Win or lose UFC needs to match up young prospects more often. Fili should handle Yair with ease imo another Rogan hype job.

    Prospects?

    Fili has had 5 fights in the UFC. Three of those have been TUF'ers. Yair is his 4th TUFer in 6 fights.

    Interesting. Another Alpha Fale takes one for the team! ;)

    I still remember Fili and Holloway, that was a great fight. One of Max's harder fights, IMO. Andre has had some rough luck since then. He's had half as many fights as Max, and I still think the Pepey choke was pretty flukish.

    Ricco Rodriguez climbs into the cage and eats them both, therefore, Rodriguez wins.

    Well, since I am female perhaps you should send his sister for me instead. And I hope she can fight, because I sure as hell can. :)
