    co-main event is Tom Niinishanhook. Yea DEF gonna watch this one

  • drkdisciple

    “weak” is a very kind word to describe this card!

    • Jay Mcgarrity

      Maybe but at least it’s free and I can’t imagine how the main event could possibly suck unless Maynard gets like a 10 second KO which is possible but unlikely.

      • drkdisciple

        I agree with the main event being an interesting matchup. However would you imagine this card being anything but free? Would anyone pay for this?

        • shakejunt

          definitely not pay, but there’s some good talent on the card.

          sampo’s debut, hw debuts, niiminaki’s debut, akira puts on a show, and the female winner is a fight or two away from #1 contender.

          • drkdisciple

            I agree with most of the posts you write on this site and I agree with almost everything you just wrote to me just don’t agree with the last point you made. I think the fight between Pena vs Rakoczy is far far far away from producing a number 1 contender. Rakoczy is 1-3 with very little ground game. Fighters like Sara McMann, Sarah Kaufman or even Alexis Davis would make quick work of her and as for Julianna Pena she is a mid carder at best.

    • Ks mma

      Someone cards that seem terrible end up having really good fights. Lots of ppvs last year sucked compared to how good they looked on paper.

  • El Gvapo

    I guess the male cast of this season’s TUF haven’t endeared themselves to the UFC brass. None of them feature here
