Fickett and Karo on the same card? You're just asking for trouble at this point.

I was thinking the same. According to McCorkle, Karo seems to be in the best mental state he's been in in years. He said in our interview that Karo knows this is his last chance at a run. I'm hoping he takes it seriously.

That aside, this event looks solid! War McCorkle!

Titties vs Buentello is not on the main card??

I was thinking the same about putting McCorkle on a card with guys named "Titties" and Pu'u

Damn, McCorkle has been on a can crushing spree lately! In the nine months since he's left the UFC, he has had six first round submission wins. Apparently his opponents across that span had a collective losing record.
