Same as the first fight, imo....Cub won't be able to stop his wrestling unless he lands a huge uppercut like T-City did.

Also I hope they get a replacement for Mendes, Merab deserves a fight, he shoulda won his debut imo....I'm sure Ricky Bandejas would take the fight, he's the current CFFC BW Champion....10-1 and is local. Going over his record, he actually fought Merab already and won a decision so this could be a payback fight for Merab.

Also, I could be wrong but I heard Miller was out of the Hooker fight.....I'd have to find a source.

Nevermind: It was David Teymur claiming Miller declined a fight with him, I think Hooker is just as dangerous tho, not as good a striker but he can hold his own there nd he's good submission wise too, should be a good war against Miller.

Probably will be seeing a lot of Frankie this year as he tries to get back to the title shot. Probably will need at least 2 to 3 wins in a row over top competition to get another shot.

Wow this is actually a decent Fight Night card. Usually these fight nights only have 1 good fight, a couple decent and the rest I could care less about. This one is deep.
