    Not a lot of big names, but seems like an actually decent card. Till and Woodley is gonna be a great one. I really have no idea who's gonna win. If I had to guess, I'd go Woodley by decision. I think he's gonna try to wrestle Till, get him up against the cage and do work. Woodley's fought some great strikers and seems like he finds a way to get around his usual height disadvantage.

    Just found out that Montano didn't make weight, so her fight with Valentina is off. That's lucky for Montano because she was just gonna get murdered. I think they may make her vacate the belt after this.

    Looking forward to seeing Tatiana Suarez, Jessica Andrade and Zabit do their things. They're all beasts.

    With Valentina and Montano off, I think they'll probably move Diego Sanchez's fight to the main card. Makes the most sense money wise to get at least some of the old school heads to possibly watch Diego fight.

    The prelims are really good too with Suarez/Esparza, Sterling/Stamann and Rivera/Dodson. Should be all exciting fights.

    I'm not very excited about this one.

    Woodley vs Till was a great fight. It was a seasoned champ vs a guy with KO power and a lot of hype behind him. Woodley showed again how his fight IQ, skills, strength, and training are too much to handle. Woodley is one of the best (if not the very best) welterweight of all time.

    Woodley has made a career out of beating these "untested" phenoms.



    Till didn't spend enough time making his way up through the ranks.

    No skills....just a haymaker thrower.

    Who has this guy ducked as a contender or as a Champ? He has beat the best of the division in his career. The guy can wrestle & he can submit guys. I see him as well rounded with devastating punching power.

    I agree on Till. Dana & the other UFC brass thought he could cut some weight and beat Woodley because he is a bigger striker. We saw how that worked out.

    On a different note: Geaux Tigers!

    I disagree with the no skills and only throw haymakers. Tills striking is fantastic. This fight was just too soon for him. It was obvious that he was so worried about getting taken down that it voided his entire offense in the fight. Woodley is a bad ass. I wish we could see him against Rory again.

    GSP and Woodley are both all time greats.

    Suarez and Andrade are gonna be PROBLEMS for Rose in the Strawweight division. I think Suarez is the biggest matchup problem, but Andrade would be the most exciting to see fight Rose, IMO.

    Zabit's a killer too. Dude is a featherweight Khabib, with much better striking. Sky is the limit for him. He'll be the reigning champ in 2 years. I think he's 3 fights away from a title shot. Josh Emmitt or Jeremy Stephens, then the Winner of the Frankie Edgar/Korean Zombie upcoming fight. Then whoever would be the #1 contender.

    I should have just went with all my picks on a parlay LOL. Missed opportunity.
