With the loss of Alessio Sakara and Jorge Rivera, that means Ludwig and Osipczak get bumped from the prelims all the way to the co-main event.
Not too shabby for those two, but paying fans have to be a little irked at the idea of a co-main event that features two guys who couldn't be considered serious contenders or even up-and-comers. Both dudes are coming off consecutive losses and weren't exactly atop the sport prior to the defeats.
Osipczak is only about a year removed from an uninspiring turn as a member of the British squad on Season 9 of TUF and that was one of the weakest casts in the show's history.
