Although Yancy vs Mike would have been a great fight. I love the replacement. I'll be interested to see what Felder looks like at Welterweight. Not having to cut much weight might be a good thing for him.

Still wish Cerrone picked this up. And/or the ufc allowed it. But this match up ain’t terrible.
