Pretty stacked Main Card: 3 title fights and 6 current or former champs fighting.

The prelims have very little "name" value, but there's a solid chance they'll produce some good action: 10 of the fighters in the prelims have finish rates above 70%.

I'm actually pulling for all the Underdogs on the main card (yes even PVZ). 

That must be the first time I've done that.

Same here, except for Aldo. I'd like to see Yan starch him.

It makes me a little sad that this seems remotely likely. Lol but it wouldn’t surprise me. I’d take 10-1 odds on it.

(Ha ha, I couldn't pick half the prelims fighters out of a lineup, but who cares, there's some solid scrappers on the undercard.)
