    Your list looks good. I would rank Rodriguez vs. Rosa higher and add Henderson vs. Thatch

    Swanson vs. Holloway, Benavidez vs. Moraga,Pettis vs. dos Anjos was also great

    I wasn't a huge fan of Henderson/Thatch. Fight kind of bothered me to tell you the truth. What's your list?

    McGregor vs Mendes was probably my favorite. I loved Lawler vs Rory too.

    Also, Jdszerzsdyck vs Penne and Esparza. I ate that shit up.

    It's not exactly deserved, but It'll be a banger, so I'm not complaining. There aren't that many contenders in the WSOF, anyway, are there?

    Agreed. Not really, can't think of any anyways. The one night tournament will be fun though.
