    James Vick might be one of the most underrated guys in the Lightweight division. He knocked out Daron Cruickshank on TUF 15 and submitted Ramsey Nijem. Yet, not very many people know about him. A fight against a newcomer won't help him gain much fanfare, hopefully Joe Silva will give him a better known name next time out.

    I dont know much about Lazaro but i dont really get why they signing so many LW's while cutting practically none. Drew Dober, Vagner Rocha, Garrett Whitely, Ben Wall, Tiequan Zhang and Charlie Brenneman shouldnt be in the UFC. Rocha bamboozled his way back into the UFC by taking that fight with Ellenberger then getting "injured" like a day later.

    Love Vick. About time he came back. Hope he can stay healthy. I see him making a serious run in the division.

    Oh so he's still alive.

    Took so long for him to be booked after that slick, quick sub of Nijem. I was hoping he'd get a step up but it'll be good just to see him back in the cage.

    Vick is extremely talented, hopefully his prime years aren't going to waste because he's always on the shelf

    About time Vick returned to action, interesting prospect at 155lbs.

    He tried to do a high kick but Daron ran into his knee shooting for the td. It was a bit lucky cause Daron was dominating him

    He was not dominating anybody. In order to dominate someone you have stun, almost finish, or offer up so much offense that an opponent can do nothing but survive. Didn't even go more than half a round. Bottom line he got K T F O.

    Ah I've been waiting for lazaro to get signed by a bigger promotion, he's got some good striking. This should be a pretty exciting fight
