I gotta hand it to them, they offer some compelling reasons to watch, at least to the casual fan. I'd say most of us already appreciate these factors but are more concerned about the fact that its still a PPV event for effectively a no-name card.


Will it be good? Only time will tell, but when you ante hard-earned cash to see premiere fighters, it really kinda blows that you are left with rising talent. Again, I'm sure most of these folks are going to perform, but the draw is and always will be the names of those who have proven they are worth watching.


Also, Danny Castillo has a huge freakin jaw.

I agree it will probably be better in that fighters without the huge star power tend to fight with more determination instead of fighting not to lose their established place. Almost all the no name shows deliver consistently. Some of the best cards ever where fight night type cards with a bunch of nobodies. 


That being said i will skip this one. The only fights i was interested in was TJ & Barao and Shayna and Bethe. I'm not watching a card just for one woman's mma fight lol  Anyway i bet Betch tko's dat betch.

I'm still pumped for this card. I agree it may not be worth as much PPV money now but I think it's still gonna be a great event.


All the main card fights are interesting to me...


TJ vs Soto - Interesting because of the last day replacement and will most likely either be a finish or domination for TJ or Soto will shock the world and win or do better than everyone thought he would


Castillo vs Ferguson - Great style match-up, gonna be awesome to see who can implement their gameplan. Both have also been looking really good lately and coming off KO's


Bethe vs Shayna - Good girl fight with a storyline behind it and Bethe could possibly face Rousey next if she wins


Nijem vs Ferreira - Two good grapplers that are coming off strong performances. Nijem's got UFC experience and has been improving but Carlos looks like a really strong grappler and he got a quick finish in his debut


Yancy vs Jackson - Stoked to see Yancy fight and Jackson has won all his fights via finish and also beat Leonard Garcia in his last fight. I'm expecting a finish in this one mostly for Yancy


Not too interested in the undercard but I expect Larkin vs Brunson to be good and HW fight should be entertaining. Potts is a finisher and I hope he can get a good finish. Don't know the other guys but hopefully they put on a good fight


Overall I think this card will surprise a lot of people. If you have nothing else to do today, you watch every event, and have the money then why not buy it? I'll definitely be watching. Just glad to have some fights on today!
