Just got my tickets last night.

 

2nd row Cageside.

 

They released some standard prices last night so grabbed me 2 really quick.

 

 

Card don't look that strong so that means it will be LIT (hopefully :( )!

Sitting in the platinum section with the platinum squad will be worth the price of admission alone.

 

Also get to see a St Preux choke on some random Sweden that rides a horse.

 

Queen Andrade throwing bombs looks fun too.

 

 

 

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday evening the more i look at it.

Alvey stepping in at very short notice to face a dangerous knockout karate player in his debut.

I'll be very interested to see the odds on this fight at fight time.

Don't sleep on Prachnio.

Sweet Pic.

 

Yea i'll def hit the prelims up that how i saw King Francis debut in Orlando last time.

 

I'll be in Orlando early (only live like 75 miles away in Tampa) i got year long passes to Universal Orlando so we will hit that early for a few hours, shower up and then head to the fights.

 

Will be a long day/night for sure i will be ready.

Saturday's didn't look great but yielded 8 finishes.  You just never know.  I would rather watch great fights than high profile, big name fighters under perform.

Exactly.

Often you can look at a couple of fights on a card and be pretty sure they will be snoozefests.

If I don't know a lot of names on a card though I might not get excited for the card in advance but I've seen enough fights and enough cards to know theyre all worth watching because ya really never know which fights will be the real barn burners.

Having said that, I'm pretty sure Stephens vs Emmett will be a helluva fight.

Negative this card is low key LIT.  Lil Heathen finna spin this Alpha Male one hit wonder head around.  King Andrade might end Torres life.  OSP will Von Flue Latifi when he shoots for dear life.  Platinum Perry WILL end Wax Griffin's life.  The last time he opened up a main card he end Ellenberger's career.

 

Then you got Barao probably missing weight but murdering some unranked random to headline the prelims.  Jouban vs Saunders is a decent scrap if Jouban doesn't run for dear life.  He will still need to win a couple more before earning a rematch with Platinum though.

It is a decent card (or low key LIT as suggested)

lol you got it completely backwards.  Josh Emmett is over hyped AF right now because of a Yolo punch he landed against a 35 year old Lamas.

 

The dude is a decision machine.  Stephens will hand him the first knockout loss of his career.

I think Tecia Torres is being undervalued in this fight against Andrade.

Torres throws accurate combinations and moves her feet very well. She's much quicker than Andrade I believe.

Andrade is being given too much credibility by the oddsmakers. If she can't tie up or cut Tecia off against the cage, clinch up and get the takedown then I don't see her winning.

I'm thinking Torres could quite possibly have Andrade chasing her and eating combos for the duration of the fight.

I think Torres by decision is well worth a straight up bet considering the +250 value that the bookmakers are offering.
