    All of Norman Parke's fights look the same.

    Easy win for Parke.
    Looks like UFC want to build him up as next UK star.

    Ugh, I really dislike Parke, but I doubt he loses here.

    Give or take a failed takedown attempt or two, pretty much. I think he's got some upside but the clock is ticking for him to have that big winning performance.

    I don't understand how Phil Harris keeps getting fights.

    I wonder, I guess just for technicality purposes, what the main card is going to be for their international TV deals.

    You'd assume the top 3 are locks. I can't see Neil Seery vs Phil Harris getting in the mix over stuff like Latifi-Lawlor and Parke-Kotani.

    Unfortunately Parke probably grinds this one out. Hoping Kotani can slap on a leglock

    They are gonna have trouble doing that.

    They are trying to get Seery a win.

    Seery vs Phil... Mmmm... Phil won the first time.

    Seery gave Brad a good stand up fight but styles make fights.

    They did cut Harris. Only for his opponent to pull out in Cage Warriors and get re-signed to the UFC a month later. Plus, we needed an Ireland vs. England matchup, and Seery can extract revenge from his 2010 loss to Harris. Keep in mind, that was at featherweight.

    They'd have to be pretty damn deluded to think of Parke as the next UK anything. In theory, he's more like the guy at the bottom of the batting order who can can't hit for power but steal bases and draw walks. He's valuable because of what he brings but you don't want him hitting clean up.

    Menga is British and far better than Harris.
