I would've preferred seeing them face a couple of different opponents before meeting up. Can't complain though since this will be one hell of a fight.

I am curious to see if Dunham can stay relevant, Tibau is big and not one to push around.....he has been a bit undependable lately.

Both great fights. I'm really excited to see Joey B and Uncle Creepy throw down though

Damn I don't like Tibau vs Dunham because I like them both. I think Tibau can be top of the food chain when he fights smart, but if he wins Dunham may not stick around much longer.
War closing my eyes for the whole fight
