Besides the Main Card I'm looking forward to see how the young undefeated Motown Phenom will do one the big stage.

Lee is very young and has never faced a professional fighter with a losing record. Last 3 fights have been finishes. He also has a couple of really solid wins including a win over BAMMA Lightweight Champion Mansour Barnaoui who recently ran right thru former UFC fighter and TUF Smashes runner-up Colin "Freakshow" Fletcher.

I agree for the most part, but I'm actually pretty excited to see Horiguchi at flyweight.

I'm also interested in seeing Lee's debut against Iaquinta, and I always enjoy watching Makdessi fight.
