    The womens 135 fights could possibly the most well rounded and entertaining fights on that entire list.

  • says:

    I think a lot of women’s fights are better than men’s. Because women at that weight don’t have a ton of power, they have to rely more on technique in order to win their fights.

  • says:

    Hopefully Silva isn’t hurt, he’s supposed to defend the King of Pancrase title in October.

  • says:

    It was originally going to be 40 fights according to the Wrestling Observer but then they cut back.

    Nick Thompson vs. Mike Weir has enough potential to be a main event on any show outside the UFC. I don’t know most of the other fighters but it is certainly good to see them bring more European and Japanese athletes to the fold.
