 NOt the same guy at all. That Sakara was nervous about fights going to the ground after the Lister debacle. This Sakara will be like the one who beat up Faircloth and Elvis. He's not worried about nothing no more and will throw hands freely again.

they should keep that on the under card because it will be one of 2 things:a) a quick ko they can replay between main card fightsor b) a drawn out, tentative, boring fight that noone wants to watch.

Are one of these prelims a swing fight? Is this event only 2 hours? If so, why? Does versus have anything better to do?

 no freakin way. After brutalizing Irvin, maybe he can get a fight with 'ol pillowfists and teach The Count a boxing lesson.
