I am really hoping that Aljamain Sterling beats the shit out of Marlon Moraes after that bullshit with John Dodson in Norfolk, but that little fuck will probably point fight his way to another victory.

This will be Liz's first right in a little over a year. I hope she will be ready as Alexis Davis will be looking to build on that win back in April.

I expect Cub Swanson to be his usual intense self.  Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing for me.

I like Alex Perez as a prospect. He has a very slick ground game and shows a ton of patience. Hopefully, he can get his weight under control as the CSAC moved this fight up to bantamweight since both he and de Tomas were far off weight during fight week. Flyweight needs some good young fighters right now.

Damn, Luke Sanders is snakebitten. This is another fight he lost when he was soundly winning. But good on Andre Soukhamthath getting the win on short notice and landing a hell of a right hand on the button.
