Holy, third times the charm? At least they have a replacement and a solid prospect at that. Going to be interesting to see how their styles match up.

Thought Easton was gonna roll against Caraway. This should be a step up in competition, and tougher fight for Mike.

Tough call for me, Easton is a beaston but Assuncao looked fantastic in his last fight. He impressed me so I'll end up picking him because I lke him, then be wrong.
