Not a lot of star power but a few compelling fights IMO.

Alessio Di Chirico may be one of the hottest prospects to ever come out of Italy and Marquez is dynamic and very fun to watch, Matt Bessette is the king of CES featherweight division, super tough test for Adesanya in Tavares (unfortunately fight screams decision). Roxie is fighting, complimentary appearance by Ostovich's tittays.

Pulling for Gianetti who was the most dynamic fighter of the season, hoping 'Cinderalla Man' Cucciniello pulls off another upset.

Gunther Zuniga may not be title contenders, but that has fotn written all over it. All heart.

Rachael Ostovich is 98% of the reason I care about this card.

Good money on Tavares, Cooch is a very live dog.  Very watchable fights.  I liked this season of TUF

Any thoughts on Rox vs Honchak?  I think prime Honchak gives Rox fits, but it's a pretty even fight TODAY.  Cheering like crazy for Rox.

I really like Adesanya but Maaaan I wanna see Tavares get the W and get a push. He's grinded at this game forever.

I think Jimmy Smith is starting to grow on me. I better find things to dislike him for.

 Think Meerchart might be the least powerful puncher I've ever seen at 185.

Crazy fight and great comeback by Meerschaert. Piechota almost made it to the bell.
