This is a great match up. I'm glad Gashimov dropped to flyweight he is better suited there.

Always love flyweight fights. Azamat has solid wrestling it'll be interesting to see if he can hold Lineker down

I couldn't agree more. Even in his UFC debut he brought it. I'm just skeptical of his ground game but you can't deny the kid can bang.

I agree Dan. The top 3 fights are awesome.

Excited to see how Costa is gonna deal with Jacare's ground game. I don't think he can deal with his ground game tbh. And Jacare's striking is improving. Ask Brunson.
