So what about Joe Ellenberger??? I'm excited to see what he brings to the octagon.

Dunno about that. Yancy is a beast standing IMO.. He's a huge lw as well. Training with the Diaz brothers he's gotta have a ground game to match too. Av bet anyone ?

Back to 10 fight card for this event again
I'm surprised they didn't ask Cerrone to jump in

I'll take you up on that. Yancy did look good against Yves, but Miller is a more well rounded fighter. Let's see how he does against him. I got Miller by UD.
