lol everybody called this. The fight card was too good to be true, someone always gets injured and pulls out.

 are you seriosly f'ing serious...what the f! i am going to this event..and let me tell you. i am dissapoint. Alessio Sakara is my favroite fighter and is off the card, Paul Harris vs Marquardt was one of the best matchups...off the card! Been a Baroni fan for a long ass time..hes off the card. Was hoping to see Etim win, and he is announced as off the card.. if James Toney doesnt fight, it will just be the icing on top of the cake for pissing me off.
