    This is one of those cards where I can't believe they have the audacity to ask people to pay for it. Without further ado:

    Robbie Lawler vs. Tyron Woodley - I'm picking Lawler though Woodley is clearly the better wrestler.

    Rose Namajunas vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz - This will be close I think. I will go with Namajunas who is on a roll lately.

    Matt Brown vs. Jake Ellenberger - Ellenberger wised up and left Rousey's horrible coach Edmund and trains at King's MMA now. I will still go with Brown though I expect Ellenberger to be improved.

    Francisco Rivera vs. Erik Perez - Who? Flip a coin.

    Ryan Benoit vs. Fredy Serrano - Again, who? They want $60 for this?

    Other than Lawler, not PPV worthy at all. Brown and Ellenberger are something like a combined 2-8 in their last ten fights. Harrible card.

    I'll pay $10 to go to bww and watch Lawler and Woodley. The rest of the card has fly eggs growing in it.

    They are going to eat it on this one. They are getting close to over saturation. This has free on FS1 quality all over it. I dont think id pay 60 to watch this live and In person

    UFC is irrelevant if Brock Lesnar or CM Punk isn't on the card.

    With all the injuries and potential for cancellations, it is insane to ask people to pay for this card. Can you imagine if Woodley or Lawler got hurt and that fight had to be scrapped? They would have NOTHING.

    UFC was far better with a smaller roster and star power.

    They do a horrible job pumping up fighters. DFW even thinks people tune in for the ufc logo.

    Seems like a few weeks ago Lawler got his face busted up bad.

    Don't see Woodley beating him. Lawler is an animal. Woodley hasn't fought in a year and half. I don't think he'll be champ a lot longer, but I doubt it ends for him tonight.
