I suppose it will also be news if he doesn't continue to attack his opponent after the bell.

I know I am in the small minority, but I'm going with Carl to win this fight.

It's always strange when people passing drug tests is newsworthy. Poor Palhares, but good work.

No this is not tournament format so only one leg can be collected a night. However, Paul might try to snap the guys other leg after the ref pries him off the first one. Should be a great fight
