Bader v Vladdy is solid, Guida v Hioki is interesting, and Grant v Wiman should be great. Even if you dislike flyweights you could turn this card off before the main event and have seen a good card.

This card is stacked for a free card. It's better than a lot or at least some PPV's. If it was on PPV, I'd definitely buy it. Not sure how an MMA fan can complain about it.

Is it Handsome Matt Wiman? If so I'd watch just to see him lose.

Doesn't have anything to do with whether it's free or not. It's the only fight I'm excited for as a Cerrone fan. Rampage will get killed easy, and flyweight is just not for me. Koch fight should be good though. I suppose I came out too harsh with that statement.

It is a lame nickname. He looks a lot like Kevin Bieksa and he seems to be quite popular with the female fans here in Vancouver, so maybe he's earned it.

Most people probably know just as much or more about the top 3 prelim fights as the Koch/Lamas fight.

No need to get into the discussion again, but for anyone who watched the press conference, when all the guys were standing waiting for the staredown pics, did anyone see Dodson and Glover standing next to one another? Wow. Dodson's real likable, and I'm sure a great fighter, but that picture sums up why I have absolutely no interest in that weight class. It honestly looked like a giant standing next to a dwarf. See now Cerrone was also up there and he was about the same height as Glover (granted not as big obviously) but it in no way looked ridiculous. 155 is the limit for me personally. Although I will definitely be interested in the Edgar-Aldo fight, as it might be as close to a superfight as we get.

i get not liking the flyweight division but at least their fights are exciting. the guys go all out at a high pace. i just enjoy 2 guys battling beating the poo out of each other. i get that neither is big enough to inflict damage but hey whatever.

Sure hope this isn't the last time we see Rampage. Really cool seeing him up there jawing at Glover during the staredown. Sport's getting a little too bland for my taste. Glover was asked at the presser if he would stand and trade with Rampage, to which he essentially replied no, so this one's gonna come down to whether or not he's able to take Rampage down. Unfortunately I have a feeling as the fight wears on he'll eventually be able to.

I think Dodson may win, but I can't bring myself to bet on him to win. With Rampage, I may change my pick after the weigh-in.
I changed 2 of my picks. I'm going with Rampage and Pettis. I was worried Rampage would struggle to make weight again, but this is looking good. I'm still not convinced Glover is ready for this big of a step up yet. I'll definitely know soon though.
