For a Bellator card, this is as stacked as it gets. I'm excited for this card

I agree. All of the Main Card fights are sweet. And there's a few decent
names on the Prelims, Will Brooks, Bubba Jenkins and LIma.

Is Dave Jansen injured are something? I figured he'd get a crack at Chandler before Rickels. Either way I'm still pumped for this fight.

Yeah, he injured his ACL. Rickels is a solid replacement, though.

I'm probably in the minority here but I think Chandler is the best 155er in mma right now and even more controversial... I'm excited to see Askren fight. I know his first umpteen fights for Bellator were boring but he beat the ever loving shit out of Amossou.
