this is going to be a really good card. ill be picking varner to win this one, i think he has been looking really good.

there are some great fights with some good up and comers on this card. Yoel
Romero, i think , is a great up and comer. the guy is an olypic wrestler. if there are any big wrestling fans on here you will know who cael sanderson is, one of the greatest wrestlers to come out of the united states ever. yoel was one of the only people to beat cael and he actually beat cael 3 times. its safe to say that yoel is a hell of an athlete.

Tibau? I was hoping for another fighter that was exciting and hot right now. Diego Sanchez vs. Varner could have been fotn. Jim Miller if he is not already booked, Matt Wyman, Nate Diaz, Gomi (last fight with Diego not so hot but usually is)
