    Not the most amazing card on paper, but has the potential to be very entertaining. Curious to see how Smith does against better competition than Evans. Also interested to see how David Zawada does, coming from KSW.

    Also, Fight Network is on a free preview right now so that's why TSN isn't showing the prelims.

    Haqparast looking great as an underdog. Really liked his odds, he looked good vs Held despite losing.

    I have some unexplainable hatred in my heart for Struve. I hope he gets embarrassed.

    Haqparast looked really good. He was just relentless with the forward pressure for pretty much the entire fight.

    Fun fight between Roberts and Zawada.

    I wonder if there will be a finish on this card at some point.

    Hopefully the main and co main event don't go the distance.

    The LHW division sucks these days which is unfortunate. Not the most exciting afternoon of fights.

    Really shows you how embarrassing it was for Cormier to call out Shogun next.

    if Smith is a top 5 LHW, imagine the carnage of Yoel Romero in that division

    Another great finish by Smith. That last elbow was brutal.

    He's beating guys well past their prime but LHW still badly needed someone like him. They now have a couple of fighters coming up in that division.

    So much for the Gus idea....

    Shotgun looked defeated before he even entered the cage.

    Yeah after 3 acl surgeries on 1 leg and years of wars he has nothing left. He was quick and agile in his prime but that's long gone.

    I would've liked to see Shogun vs Fedor when both were in their primes

    Very similar fighters, IMO
