I'm interested in the austin springer fight. He trains with a good team and needs a good win. He fought to get in the tuf house and lost to Chris Gruetzemacher to get in to the house. Austin jumped up two weight classes, from what he was competing at, at that time. He was competing at 135. I believe he is competing at 145 now. Hes going to need an impressive win. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does tonight.

Giga overrated. He’s shown holes that will be easy to exploit for the next guy..

Wright 9-0. All cans except for his most recent guy who was 7-4. Hernandez mostly cans, except for his last 2 who were good wins. 6-0.  Leaning Wright because he’s got the Jackson-Wink gym behind him. Should be a good fight. Hernandez the significant favorite for some reason..
