I was going to be pulling my hair out if this fight wasn't on the main card. Honestly, i think it could be co main.

This card is just unbelievable. Sadly 2012 had cards like this lined up, only to fall apart.

What a great card man. Stoked...

War Aldo, Reem, Evans, Fitch and Benevidez... i think for sure 4/5 of those guys will win. I think Benevidez is the closest to a lock.
