Nice replacement, was kinda hoping for The Korean Zombie but I can't complain with this fight!

Great replacement! Tough fight for both guys. I think Poirer is the next big thing so I'm gonna give him an advantage. I'm a fan of both guys though so either way I'll be happy and sad.

I thought Poirier would have beaten Koch, and I think he'll handle Lamas as well. Agreed that he's the next big thing.

I was really hoping the Korean Zombie would be the replacement, but this is a good scrap too.

EDIT: Just realized I said the same thing as the OP. Get out of my head!!!

I had DDP beating Koch, I still have him beating Lamas, but Lamas is a tough underrated guy.

I think DDP would go through TKZ Jung.
