Great replacement. Pierce should take it.

Oh snap! If Pierce finishes this fight I'll have to take back all the mean things I've said about him being a boring point fighter. I dare you to make me eat my words, Mike.

Big step up for Seth. I'm a fan but I definitely see Pierce taking this one.

I personally think Seth is in a whole lot of trouble. Pierce will have the much better wrestling and more then likely will dictate where this fight takes place.

Hoping Seth can pull off the W here but Pierce is one of the most underrated fighters in the division and is more than capable of pulling this one off.

Definitely a big step up in comp. for Seth.

This card is shaping up quite well.
