Blanco is a beast, just the other day I was wondering when he was gonna fight cuz I remembered they signed him in September. Brimage just doesn't have what it takes to beat him. Maximo KO R1

I'm with ya Tim. Blanco did not impress me his last fight. Healey is a decent fighter, not great, and his length and grappling seemed to give Blanco problems. I know Marcus doesn't possess the same skills as Healy, but Marcus stands a decent shot here. It should be a stand up war while it lasts.

So is Brimage is as good as Healey? and doesnt taking a fight on short notice help someones case for a loss, not to reinforce personal disdain? I'm not saying its not a good matchup here but I dont know that you thought that statement through.
