    Happy to see Walsh get another shot.

    Perosh is going to sleep though.

    Regional MMA masquerading as a PPV.

    I could see them filling a decent amount of seats with this card, this card is going to be in a stadium right?

    It is. If they plan on filling it they need to add a really good co main and one more ppv caliber fight. I think JDS-Reem should co main and have Larkin-Masvidal open up the ppv.

    Matthews is going to manhandle and put a tight squeeze on Areola.

    When an entire continent has less MMA talent than a jock strap in a TAM locker room, you kind of take what you can get.

    That being said war Hippo.

    Yea also think they should add a couple more big fights to this card, but i can honestly see them them filling around 30k seats with the card they have now. A lot of the names on this card are pretty popular over there

    Some great fights on this one, but there's not enough big-name fights for me to take it seriously as a PPV.

    The first fight was epic but both guys seem to be on their last leg as of late. Especially Bigfoot.

    Been a long long time since Bigfoot, hunt, bisping, Condit or Lawler were regional fighters

    The rest of the card looks like a TUF Nations finale.
