I'm excited for it. I enjoy watching most of the fighters on the card and Ferreira is a great replacement.

I agree

Should be a great card. The events in Brazil never let me down.

Ferreira is a BEAST and great replacement I think he takes the win in this one.

Not a name worthy card but I like a lot of the fighters on the main card.

Beneil Dariush vs. Diego Ferreira has the potential to be an excellent grappling match. Great fight!
