6/7/09: UFC veteran Sean Salmon will be replacing Ron Faircloth in this Saturday nights Fight Nite in the Flats III event in downtown Cleveland.

I'm a big fan of both of these guys. I know Sean is on a couple fight loosing streak, but he still brings a lot to the cage. Freebird is from a small town of only about 3,000 people and thats where i grew up so I'm pulling for Freebird. I'm sure NOBODY on here has probably heard of Jason Freeman but he is a devasting striker and well versed on the ground. He is not going to out wrestle Sean though. I would like to see a 2nd RD KO win for Freeman, but feel that sean is probably the favorite in this match. Sorry for ramblig, just excited when I read this news......
