Great opponent for Spong's debut. The guy has a respectable 7-2 record, all his wins are through striking and he's been out of action for a couple of years. This will look good on his record when he wipes the floor with this guy

Spong is a NASTY man, if buddy stand with him he will get murdered. Here's to hoping Spong has good takedown d

I hope this event is awesome, Ray Sefo is a legend and a great guy, he deserves to do well and it's great to see him as president of a new org.

War Sefo

And Spong will demolish the comp in WSOF, the UFC will want him soon

Don't underestimate Bartlett. He has trained alongside Marcus Davis and Frank Mir. That def. helps.

Like Terror said don't underestimate Bartlett!!! I know Travis from High School as well as training with him at Team Irish in Maine. Travis is deadly with his hands and is a former boxer who trained with Marcus Davis and now trains with Frank Mir. He has also trained with Wanderlei Silva out in Vegas.Travis knocked out Calvin Brock in the amateurs before brock turned pro and was undefeated at heavyweight until he fought one of the Klitskos. The guys is no joke, his only bad loss was when he fought Tom Lawlor who knew of Travis's hands and took him down immediately and subbed him. Travis hasn't fought for a couple years but has been training steady the whole time. Playing JDS for Mir for his fight, and has many fights canceled from infuries, and has trouble getting fights because he's a tough guy!!! This should be an interesting war on the feet of a boxer vs. kickboxer!!!
