    I’m taking Bendo by decision, Cormier by TKO, Thomson by Diaz-is-a-punk-bitch and Mein by sub. The only undercard fight I’ll even try to pick is Mendes by pissed he’s on the undercard!

    • Mike mckinney

      Is that your way of saying mendes is the only person on the undercard that you have heard of?

      • Cereal Killer

        No, I just don’t think he should be on the undercard. He gets the main event of the Facebook card.

  • Eric 81

    Pretty ridiculous mendes on prelims. Only #2 ranked fighter they would do that to. Go through the weight classes and look at #2 in each weight and tell me if any of then other than chad mendes would ever be on an undercard !!!! And what, since they f*** up and put him on prelims mmaweekly can’t even put the #2 and #9 next to mendes/ elkins names ?? Fyi, this is also chads 3rd straight prelim fight ! All while being #2 ranked featherweight in world. Not sure what danas problem is w him but there has to be something there.

    • Cereal Killer

      Good catch, I missed that his rank isn’t next to his name. Matt brown is on the main card. He’s ranked, like… #38?

  • Diaz By Gogo

    Bendo, Diaz, and Cormier. I’d like to see Gil and Mir pull it out.. Mir might go K-1 Mir on cormier.
