Is it just me, or did this fight just improve?

I'm not too sure who this dude is but I am almost certain he will trash Leonard and lose a split.

Leonard Garcia via split decision is almost as money as Fitch UD.

I lucked out again
Better match up.
And with guillard vs varner as well

I don't like the Brunson match as much. But Brunson has a lot of first rd finishes as does leban
Fight won't make it to the second rd

No more injuries please. I need to enjoy next week fight have a few drinks and relax

It definitely did

Holloway is going to spank Garcia. I like this fight a hell of a lot more should be a stand up war

Much more interesting fight. I fancy Holloway to take this and will probably be picking him.

made this fight a lot easier to pick...Garcias only chance at victory is Holloway catching pneumonia from the breeze generated from Garcia's windmill punches

Holloway wins this match up all day, staying on the outside and picking garcia apart. He uses his length very well. Don't think he can finish garcia but should get a quite convincing decision.
