Main event should be fun and so should Lamas/Hacran and Kelvin is always entertaining.

Glad they signed Carlos Diego, but Colton's wrestling could give him problems, hopefully it doesn't though.

Great main event for a Fight Night card IMHO.  Either guy could be fighting for the title next off of a win.

 

Also, Gastelum missed weight.  Does he regret firing Mike Dolce now?  He loses 20% of his purse now for missing weight.

The irony?  He fired Dolce for being "too expensive."

Cutting out carbs is not expensive.  Judging by the weigh-ins, he doesn't really look like he's disciplining himself with his diets.

 

EDIT:

Well good fight card.  Main card was kind of dull until the main event.  I'd say Swanson has earned his title shot.  Hopefully that performance will get Deadspin to change their tune on Jeremy Stephens after the garbage they wrote about him.
