God, I hope everyone makes weight and doesn't get hurt.  These two main events are totally fucking sick.  I can't wait for the card. 

Two guys at the top of their game going at it and two ladies that are bona fide killers in the ring about to kick the living shit out of each other.

For me, this fight for Ortega feels like it's going to go one of two ways. Either it's his crowning moment ala Jon Jones cruising to victory over Shogun to win his first championship or it will be like when GSP stumbled and lost to Matt Hughes where he wasn't quite ready.

Either way, Ortega looks like he's going to dominate the division sooner or later. I'm also not sure how much I like that. I not a big fan of the guy, but his skills are undeniably impressive.

Renato Moicano didn't make weight as the backup as he couldn't get down to 145 so it's either Holloway vs. Ortega or bust.

I'm not terribly impressed with Eryk Anders or his shitty gas tank.  Thiago Santos really exposed Anders's suspect cardio when he dragged that ass into deep water this past September at the Fight Night card in Brazil.

Is this Elias Theodorou guy a credible fighter or is a tomato can that Dana brought in to repair Anders's marketability?

Tim Williams would've beaten Anders, but he got overconfident and sloppy and got his head punted off.  If anything, Anders has power, killer instinct, and he fights to finish, but those things can only get you so far.

Elias is a good fighter he should have a good game plan to beat Anders but if he gets caught he's fucked. Elias is the ring guy for InVicta FC shows.

He fought that fight on extremely late notice. Jimi Manuwa got hurt the Sunday before the fight. The fact he fought that well with no camp was very impressive. He did the UFC big favor taking that fight.

Anders is a great athlete but still a bit raw. I think he beats Theodorou though.
