I feel blessed (extremely selfishly) that DJ is not a PPV draw. Because this card is stacked. Great fights from prelims to the main event. Can't wait!! DJ in my mind is arguably best p4p fighter on the planet. Definitely could argue top 3 of all time.

Did you guys hear that Cody Garbrandt wants to drop to 125 to fight DJ. Providing he beats TJ. I hope TJ beats him so bad. I use to like Cody when he was coming up. Now i can't stand the prick and his gay neck tattoo.

But i agree tilden. This is a nice free Fox card. I doubt DJ will have much trouble with Reis. His speed and pace will be too much. And i love both of the women in the Co-Main. Honestly i hate to see that one of them will lose. I like them so equally that it'll be a fight time decision to see who I'm more a fan of. Not sure if you guys ever feel that way about certain fights. Jacare vs Whitaker has potential, but I'm thinking Jacare will take it.But Whitaker will have a striking advantage. And either Stephens gets a signature Ko or this undefeated guy makes a name for himself. And looking forward to the long time L2 Vet Tom Duquesnoy making his debut. Very winnable fight for him. Sterling/Mendes should be a fun scrap too.
