    I’ve got to say, other than the Koreshkov fight, I’m not seeing much to get excited about on this card. I know cards like this are the ones that usually end up being awesome, but I’m not seeing it this time. Maybe I’m missing something.

    I’m looking forward to Baroni vs Karo, used to be a fan of both guys back when. I know its a pointless fight now, but i’m still intrigued
    McGeary vs Valavicius is a good fight, McGeary is a great prospect and on a nice run of stoppages.
    Philipe Lins is fun to watch, Saad Awad & Karl Amassou always bring it.
    Bubba Jenkins vs. Poppies Martinez will be interesting, Bubbas another good prospect.
    And Linton Vassell is another good UK fighter on a good run

    to be honest i’m trying to convince myself its gonna be good, it certainly has potential

    Anybody who ever watched Baroni and Karo in there prime should want to see this fight and hope to see both guys do well, his anxiety problems aside Karo was a very good fighter who had a great run up until his troubles, and Baroni is great for the first 5 minutes against anybody.

  • Dufresne says:

    Baroni is great for the first 5 minutes against anybody
    That’s the only reason I didn’t include that as one I was really looking forward to. I see it going one of two ways, Karo gasses/gets caught early and Baroni finishes it, or Baroni gasses early and we get a sloppy decision. I really hope I’m wrong and they both show up to fight, because they were both pretty damn good back in the day. But it’s been so long since “back in the day” that I’m not sure they can do it anymore.
