Damn!

Glenn Robinson @ Authentic Sports Management is the fucking man for getting Jorge another shot in the UFC.

Santiago had a hard time with Maia at middleweight. It'll be interesting to see how he does against Gunni at WW.

Has Jorge fought at 170 before? This is a really interesting fight. By far the toughest of Nelson's career. Phone Post

Santiago has shit the bed in his biggest fights, I hope he's worked out the kinks and makes this a classic and doesn't go one and done

Hell of a card, we might have Manuwa and Tehuna lined up after this or Jimmo and Diabate or Manuwa. Dynamite future matchups

Sick fight if Jorge can get to 170 and stay healthy. Picking Gunnar though, he is the real deal.

Danny Castillo vs. Paul Sass -- So much at stake in this fight.


can Sass bounce back? he wont have to worry about taking the fight to the ground cuz Danny will put him on his back. Will Sass attempt to stand with Danny? Wow! I cant wait for this fight.

That would be a great win for Nelson at this stage of his career. He'll probably be a lot smaller. Phone Post

Although gunnar may be the better grappler than jorge is, hes 10x the striker! So i see him koing him. Id like to see gunnar vs wonderboy. Theyre pretty even on the feet imo.

Wow, great match up! I thought Edwards would be an easy fight for Gunnar, Jorge is a big step up in competition.

Jorge hasn't had the best of luck in the UFC, but when he's on, he's an amazing fighter.

Looking forward! Phone Post
