    Not a lot of names but I think this might be one of those cards that ends up being pretty entertaining. There's quite a bit of hype around Torres coming into the UFC and he might be someone to watch.

    I think this will be a fun card. These two guys should be able to bring it for 25 minutes if needed, and there are lots of finishers on the main card. Even the FS1 prelims aren't bad.

    Kind of interested in Sijara Eubanks.. as least as excited as you can be about a 2-2 33 year old female flyweight. I thought she showed some good things on TUF and would have won if she hadn't gotten hurt. It's possibly Murphy just wrestlers her, but hopefully Eubanks can show off her stand-up a bit.

    I think there's a chance that Pichel can pull the upset tonight. He's +350 or +400 or something like that, but he's a big step up for Gregor. Not betting the house or anything, but those odds seem off to me so I'll be tossing some money down.

    Two guys who are comfortable throwing in the pocket. Surely the main event won't be a total snooze fest, right?

    Crazy finish in the Torres vs. Brooks fight. Brooks clearly won the 1st round but then knocked himself out in the 2nd when he went for a slam.

    Teymur is showing that it pays off to cheat. If refs don't do sh** regarding fouls, you'd be a ****** to not foul.

    Also, i can see how Teymur won't really translate as an exciting fighter if he's gonna fight the top 10 of the division. His style is too reliant to be engaging when he has the absolute advantage over his opponent.

    How’s about Nathaniel Wood tonight? That was a classic Nathanael Wood fight! They should’ve put him on the main card imo. Hes one of the most entertaining fighters I’ve ever seen.

    Saunders can still get it done with those knees.

    Finally some finishes after some bad fights. Villante vs. Alvey was just awful.

    Both Moraes and Gillespie looked great.
