    Is anyone else excited for this bout? How do you see it going down? I've got El Pantera via flying knee.

    I hope "Bruce Leeroy" loses.
    He always has rubbed me the wrong way in his TUF days.

    It's rare for Yair to KO someone.

    For him to KO with his flashy kicks, stars have to align.

    I predict a decision game although it can be an exciting fight.

    Yair via something crazy.

    Caceres beat Miller up, but then, Miller is no stranger to taking beatings. El Pantera should get the win pretty clearly in this, but I worry about his cardio in a 5-rounder.

    I hope Yair gets a sub to show how well-rounded he is. Na...kicks are more exciting.

    it's a cliche, but i think it's true in this case:

    don't blink

    this fight makes zero sense. yair deserves a way bigger step up, and caceres has not earned a main event slot.

    Wish they would book Yair vs Doo. That would be an awesome fight.

    This fight is gonna be sick. They both looked fantastic in their last fights. I love Yair's wild frenetic style but I am saying caceres gets the upset, just a guess.

    Very.
    I'm taking Caceres, submission (rear-naked choke), 4th round.

    Rodriguez is brilliant but his all-action style doesn't lend itself to a lot of cardio. He either paces himself, in which case I think he'll be less effective, or he'll be knackered by the title rounds and Leroy taps him.

    I am not really excited for this... Caceres in a main event... eugh. I hope that Rodriguez wins.
