I like this fight. Two Hall of Famers who are close to their prime. Maybe a year or two past, but still top talent in their divisions (arguably the #2 or #3 in their weight class).

Love this fight!

Honesty didn't expect this high of quality Main Event in the Philippines.

I was thinking more like Dodson vs Cariaso or even Munoz making a quick turn around against a Derek Brunson type of fighter. But definitely not complaining.

WAR Frankie!!!

Awesome fight, I've been hoping for this one for a while. If Frankie wins, there's no way he doesn't get a title shot.

I just broke the news in the ufc fight club forums for the fans going to jersey card
Hoping this fight would land. They are pissed
The fox card is weak. I think hall vs philipou lands on jersey now.
