  • Angry Mike says:

    Hopefully Cerrone has improved his takedown defense since his fight with Varner. That was a big hole in his game in that fight, anyway.

  • Jak says:

    Looking forward to this card, i know I like Cerrone, but don’t know if he’s really got what it takes to headline a card yet. Should be a great fight.

    Page/Tamura could turn out to be a real good real quick fight, or a brawl.

    Same with Tapia/Wineland.

    and it will be good to see Assuncao fighting!

    Probably won’t get this live in Canada though, not big enough names for TSN to highlight this card. :(

  • Some exciting matchups there. I think Tapia v Wineland is fight of the night. Both of those guys come to brang and put on some exciting fights. Man I LOVE the WEC! These little guys sure know how to put on a show.
