    I like it because it strengthens the card but Krause has a lot to lose. He hasn't been beaten in 5 years (aside from one loss on TUF), and he's looked very, very good lately.

    Giles isn't exactly a step up from Warlley Alves and Sergio Moraes. I'd understand accepting Giles as a last-minute replacement, but I don't think Krause be stepping up.

    Because he passed out from a weight cut.


    You KNOW a card is terrible when a fight like Arroyo vs Giles is crucial...

    I'd rather see him fight though. But I agree, career wise it's not a good move.

    He is a night shift cop who works those crackhead hours so he’s kinda half committed to MMA. Otherwise he’d be a pretty good prospect..

    And wow, Krause is a former 155er moving up to 185. Good luck to him.

    Krause is a stud for taking this on such short notice.

    Damn. Arroyo is thick and shredded, I'm surprised he's able to make MW. I think this signals he should go to LHW.

    I really hope this doesn't backfire for Krause, who I'm a fan of. I also like Giles, who I was hoping was going to get back on track tomorrow. Already bummed for the loser.

    There is short notice and there is no notice

    Nice1 to Krause for taking this - hope he will not regret it afterwards
