    Yup probably the worst card ever. Supposedly it was a last minute card, when the Philippines for whatever reason fell through.

    I never hate on cards, but I've only heard of one guy (Magny) on the prelims.

    One of the reporters who covers Asian MMA (I can't remember who) said he had heard the original plan was for Munoz/Carmont to happen in the Philippines and Dollaway/Mousasi in Berlin. When the venue in the Philippines didn't work out, they swapped the fights around and went with New Zealand. They were hoping for Schaub/Hunt to headline BUT Hunt wasn't healthy.

    Yeah, Bellator has more star power on their weekly shows than this one. Ah well, they can't all be great.

    Hioki vs Oliveira is the fight I am looking forward to the most.

    Also interested to see how Soa defends against a wrestler.
