Wow. As someone who usually rips Bellaturd for being Bellaturd, I actually quite like this card.

The undercard is worth watching for once too


Horiguchi and Caldwell is the fight I look forward most to. Especially since its 5 rounds now and Horiguchi gets to use the shape of the cage and the cage itself to help his takedown defense. I see him going up 2-0 on Darrion. Which is absurd as he is a large featherweight sized bantamweight and Horiguchi is a pretty above average Flyweight who is fighting at bantamweight

Just shows how good Horiguchi is and how sad it is most mma fans could give a shit he is fucking people up left and right way larger than him

My favorite fight too. But I think Caldwell takes it due tobthe cage. His TDs will be better and no guiotine this time. :tup:

That seems to be the case but idk man Rory had been kinda shying away from violence
He was always kind of soft .. you know like how he let bj survive instead of killing him .etc etc.
But now hes openly talking about how he doesn't wanna hurt people

And he's fighting a Gracie ... We all know how ruthless those entitled motherfuckers are

Idk mayne.. Rory might drop it .. he shouldn't based on skill . But he just might mate

For all the hype around Hardy’s boxing, she seems to not be suited well for exchanging hands in mma. She seems to be a boxing volume puncher without much power it head movement.

Easy win for Holm.

After 7 hours of boring meetings and lectures today, I'm eager to kick back and watch some fights. I'll be relaxing in chat tomorrow if anyone is interested. The card should be a good one, or at least entertaining.

Touche but Holly doesn't move her head much either and Heather doesn't shy from a brawl like Holm does.... If they ever fight I'd favor Ronda Killer as well but I wouldn't completely dismiss Hardy. The girl is a warrior.

It might be my dick talking, idk for sure.
