    Somebody really needs to update that poster. Gina’s not even on the card anymore and that bout between OSP and King Mo was called prematurely. Yet it’s still on the banner?

    The audience is going to be expecting certain fights, that ain’t even happening!

    Change it Zuffa!
    Or whoever’s in charge of such stuff!
