Herman vs Souza is interesting. Would have liked Larkin vs Souza better but this should be a fun fight either way.

Jacare should beat Ed here but if can do it in dominating fashion it'll prove he's going to be a force in the UFC.

Pretty pumped for this event overall!

Herman is very good himself and I think he has a shot at winning the match.

pretty good considering something like 4 fights were scrapped. I'm pretty sure Noons isn't an "elite" anything but they gotta put something for hype

Why is everyone sleeping on Moussassi Kyle? That's the fight I'm waiting for. The Sponge Marquardt fight could be super chill too if Nate doesn't turn it into a wrestling match.

Also why does it say full line up when they don't even have an opponent for Healy?

I was thinking the same thing about Herman being a star
