If Viviane Araujo can figure out some of the defensive grappling aspects, she can be a top name at flyweight for awhile. She's going to be head and shoulders above many girls in terms of striking. She has massacred Montana De La Rosa's face.

Brian Kelleher just got his super late replacement opponent (who for whatever reason decided to go for a takedown on a guy whose best offensive weapon is a guillotine choke) out of there in 40 seconds. He's pretty much secured himself a performance bonus unless we get some awesome finishes in the remaining fights.

The problem with an Augusto Sakai is he doesn't have a great eraser or at least something he can rely on to be an advantage over top heavyweights. His striking is a 7 on a 1-10 scale, but his power just slightly above average best. He's just all combinations. If that's his best attribute, it's gonna be tough to break into the next tier.
