    Very last minute scheduling. I would like to see this fight open up the PPV and bump off one of the the 3 women's fights on the PPV. I dont hate WMMA but that's a bit of overkill imo.

    Have Esparza/Suarez headline FS1 and bump this to the Main Card opener. It's an awesome matchup.

    I can never figure out Niko Price.

    His technique isn’t great but that dude literally always finds ways to win. He just comes to fight.

    No idea how this fight plays out. Leaning on Razak but who knows.

    Why are legit WW's like Price and Luque used as some kind of stepping stone to fast track other WW's?

    May just have the most pure punching power in the division.

    Good fight, I think Price will win with grappling. Alhassan showed that his grappling is a hole in his game vs Akhmedov.

    This is a damn good fight.

    Better late than never.

    Hopefully this means 2 WMMA fights on the main card instead of 3.

    Oooooo. Nice fight. Hate to see either guy lose though, especially Price.

    Bummed I'll miss it, will be flying during this card :(

    Agreed. Not particularly good at any one thing... but he's aggressive, comfortable everywhere, and can finish.

    Like both of them, but Alhassan seems much more limited and I actually believe Niko Price is a future contender, so I'll root for him

    I think Price wins this by 2nd rd sub. I see alhassan having his moments, but I think price is more well rounded and is big for the division. Grappling will be the difference!

    Great fight, better be on the main card. These killers have stayed buried in the prelims long enough. Ufc doesn't need to punish their fan base by having two smoke-break fights on the main card.
