Looking forward to Torres/Namajunas II. Rose looked fantastic in her last two fights while Tecia's remained dominant in all of her fights. Should be good stuff.

I am looking forward to Torres/Namajunas' rematch, and I hope Namajunas wins.  Not sure she can beat Torres because she's so controlling, but we'll see.

Also looking forward to the Torres/Namajunas rematch.   Should be good stuff.  Those ladies deserve to co-main this card.

That's the fight I'm most looking forward and even though I will record all of it I will probably try to watch that fight live.

Islam Makhachev failed for a banned substance and has been removed from the card. Since Dober made weight, he will receive his show money.

Santiago Ponzinibbio is one of my favorite fighters to watch. Probably never going to be a world beater, but a very talented striker that provides a bunch of action. That Larkin fight was bananas. Good to see him get a victory over a solid fighter in Court McGee.

I dunno if Pennington is actually winning this fight. She's only really having small bursts of offense.

Pennington fought better in the third. Anyway, super close fight. Wouldn't argue with any scorecard really.

Horcher tried his best earlier on, but Khabib was just way too good. His top game is absurd.

Guessing this win puts Rose at the front to challenge the winner of Joanna vs. Claudia.

Agreeing with that for sure.

Was hoping Tecia would pull it off but knew it was over when Rose got the last takedown. Big fan of both, just wanted Tecia to keep her unbeaten streak of all unanimous decision wins alive. Still feels like Joanna champion is a huge step up in competition for Rose at this point but will be an interesting fight for sure vs. either JJ or Gadelha.

Had a feeling Rashad was going to get clipped by a huge punch. He was doing fine, but you could tell he was a step slower when it mattered.

Totally agree that's a tremendous step up. I think it has all the makings to be one of the best strawweight fights ever stylewise. However, she can't afford to fight like she did against Torres at certain points especially the middle of round 1 and the majority of round 3. That would play right into the hands of Joanna. I didn't expect Tecia to clip her like that. Against Joanna, that would be curtains. Rose has to fight like she did early on in the second round and use her jab effectively.

If it wasn't for his commentary gig on Fox Sports 1, I would say Evans is getting dangerous close to that "time has passed for UFC which is perfect for Bellator" position

I don't think Rashad would leave unless he got really desperate or hard up for money. He wants to compete with the best in the world. The problem is his body isn't responding like it use to.  I think a four or five years ago, he would have bodied somebody like Ryan Bader.  I also think the fight with Glover would've been competitive and went 2-3 rounds before anything decisive happened. When you lose a few steps, fights like those are so easy to look bad in. 

It also doesn't help he is on the smaller side of 205.

Dana said he likes the idea of Teixeira vs. Rumble. On Twitter, seems like Rumble is up for it. It would make sense to make that the main event for the July show in Chicago.
