Kind of feel bad for Olive. He goes from fighting Barbosa to Koch, two tremendous strikers.

Good for Eric, I've seen that kid walking around at 180 so I hope 155 will allow for him to focus more on fighting and less on dieting.

Too lanky glass chin FW ' s.    Both very skilled.  Actually a pretty good match up for both.
