    Thought Dana said that Kelvin would have one more fight at MW. Would've liked to see him vs Bisping or Moose.

    This + Ferguson/Alvarez would be a great main and co-main.

    Oh wow. This would probably be a 5 round Main Event, so I'm going with Brown via cardio. On paper Kelvin is a dangerous style matchup for Brown, but when the elbows start flying, I don't think Kelvin will keep up with Matt's pace.

    If it's main event Brown probably. If not Gastelum for sure. He's going to win the early rounds easily.

    Man I hate these Mexico events, every fighter is gassed after the first round.

    Stupid fight. Gastellum getting rewarded a fight after shitting the bed. Brown needs a higher ranked opponent than himself imo.

    I love Kelvin at 170. Please don't F up this weight cut.

    Didn't see this fight coming. Should be a great scrap. Love both these fighters.

    Mandatory permanent move to 185 if he misses.

    He probably should be if he does, but the guy has so much damn potential and he's still so young.
