Tony Sims is no slouch! This is a solid fight

As someone who's attending this event I'm happy to see them make this bout instead of pulling Olivier. I really liked the original matchup but I still like this one as well; it could turn out to be much more exciting with Sims.

Really good replacement here. OAM is going to have his hands full with Sims as well.

Don't know much about Sims other than he lost to Drew Dober. If that's an indication, he may not survive. I think OAM is something that may be special if he hones his skills but I just don't get that vibe from Tony Sims. This IMO looks like a traditional grappler v striker fight. I am taking OAM.
