Hopefully Grasso has worked on her takedown defense or else Suarez will take her down at will. If it stays standing Grasso should be able to pick the strikes she wants unless she doesn't move her head.

Reyes called out Jordan Johnson for the PPV card in LA. We know Reyes can finish people, but how well can he do against a strong wrestler? I think that would answer that question.

Benitez and Botelho got these prelims off to a hell of start. Benitez with several nasty flurries of strikes and Botelho with 2 nasty body kicks then some hammerfists.

Veronica Macedo vs. Andrea Lee was a deserving fight of the night with Macedo having an amazing showing even in losing with Lee looking amazing with a well rounded game. Lee almost finished it several times but Macedo was able to survive and make great counters on the ground before Lee would reverse her. 

Suarez did what was expected got the fight to the ground and was able to be the 1st to finish Grasso.
