I get that tey wants the PPV buys but why not start out the whole cbs thing with this fight. Would have been a good move IMO. Either way i see this being a good fight with noons coming out on top

Kala Hose on the undercard? Isn't he still the reigning ICON MW champ?

Last time i checked yes. I think it has to do with who he's facing.

He must be tired of his nerdy image and wants to be a gangsta.Maybe he'll pick a fight with Kimbo.
On a serious note this should be a good event and I think KJs striking will be too much for Yves.And hopefully Diaz won't take too much damage from Corbrey and be ready for Sakari.

Yves is the man but I think he is going to be outmatched in this one, I will be rooting for him but I'm not so sure he will pull it off.
