    Looks like this card will deliver, again another FOX card I would gladly pay for if PPV.

    Solid fights from top to bottom, and ALOT of these fights feature striker v striker or grappler v grappler which could be a recipe for exciting fights.

    I mean look at these standup showcases:
    Rampage and Texieria
    Cerrone and Pettis
    Kuiper and Roberts
    Bader and Vlad
    Russow and Jordan


    And the grappling showcases:
    Koch and Lamas
    Grant and Wiman
    Stumpf and Krauss
    Natal and Magnus
    Mitchell and Thoresen

    Would anyone agree with this assessment?

    lol at Russow being a "striker" and Koch being a ground specialist.

    if anything, russow is a GnP artist.

    I've been waiting for Cerrone and Pettis for so long, it could've been the main event IMO.

    Bader/Vlad is a stand up showcase?

    I was hoping someone would disagree with this but IMO I think their mma wrestling cancels out and they could very well display a horrible kickboxing match with someone getting knocked

    I highly doubt Koch vs. Lamas will be a grappling showcase. Koch will be looking for the KO otherwise Lamas is going to hold him down.

    So your calling Koch a slouch on the ground? Honestly his grappling and jitz is enough to Lamas fits if it goes to the ground

    Koch struggled at times against Jonathan Brookins...and his only loss was to Mendes. This is a tough fight for Koch and there is zero way he is going to be looking to grapple with Lamas. Koch is all about striking, he trains w/Roufus. What would make you think Koch wants to grapple voluntarily with Lamas?

    And if Lamas could get past Hioki on the ground, why would Koch cause him fits?

    I want Vlady to knock Bader badly, he's fading from the top 10 of the division
    and also I hope the Janitor gets on a nice streak before retiring
    feed him Hamill next :)

    aww hamill is from my town. but yeah gotta love Vlad. He has faced some tough rising starts lately. I mean he fought Jones and Gustaffson before people knew what those two were capable of. Poor guy. and vlad is just a hard working type. not at all the level of athlete of those two.

    I can't believe thay allow him back in the cage. Must be to cater to the "just bleed" segment of the fanbase.

    Not as good as FOX 5, for me.

    Main event - couldn't care less. Hope Dodson KO's him since he can at least potentially put opponents away, so he'd be a more marketable champion.

    Rampage/Glover - on the fence. Let's see if it even happens first. If it does, good fight.

    Pettis/Cerrone - 10/10.

    Koch/Lamas - good contenders fight.

    Prelims, maybe 2-3 fights Im arsed about. Stuff like Krauss/Stumpf, Kuiper/Roberts isn't tickling my todger unfortunately.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Russow pounded Jordan breaking his tailbone...
