Seems to me the only time these guys put on an entertaining fight is when they lose.

I think it will be boring as well but is a pretty even stylistic matchup. Volkmann has better wrestling but Rollers isn't too bad either and imo Roller has the striking and sub advantage.

It doesnt matter who they put on this card, as I will be tuning in to see Hendo vs. Jones. They could have Kongo fight Jordan in the best of 11 fights in a row and I still would watch in order to see Hendo vs. Bones.
