    Here we go! Hoping my man Dariush can catch that neck!

    I always pick an amount of finishes lower than what actually happens, lol

    Holtzman, Wilson, Kakai and Bamgbose are all solid prospects worth watching. Also Herrera is making his debut on the main card.

    Hall vs Bamgbose and Borg vs Herrera are both solid fights if all 4 guys come out at their best.

    Oluwale Bamgbose (5-0) may be what people wanted Hall to be. It's hard to say because of his competition and some of it ended up being more ground and pound then catching clean on the feet. But he's strong. His power is good so far. The fight is pretty much made in the hopes he'll either force Hall to fight or he'll replace Hall as an exciting striker.

    Personally, I'm most looking forward to how the UFC-brass will try to prounounce "Oluwale Bamgbose".:)
