All of you L2 players should recognize both of these guys.
This has potential to be a very good Flyweight bout. Both guys have done well on the smaller circuits and will be looking to make a name for themselves.

Great signings. Sampo is excellent and Benoit has potential to be amazing if he puts the time in the gym.

Fly weight is getting a big boost with these two, Montague, Pettis and Campuzano recently.

Nice additions, should be a scrappy fight with both looking to prove their worth. A week and a half's notice doesn't make it easy either. I'm really looking forward to this one

Yes that is correct. Sampo did submit Villa in the 5th Round in a Title fight over at CFA. He since defended that Title against Sam Thao.

Should be a fun scrap. Just wish Benoit would switch over to Alpha Male. They could turn him into an animal.

That would be the perfect camp for him. He's a heavy hitter and Ludwig would tighten his striking up and the others would fix those holes in his game that I think Sampo is going to exploit.
