Young vs. Lee
Gauge Young, SUB, R2
I wish Lee wasn’t on a three fight L streak, but this is still a perfect step up for young. Really looking forward to this fight

Schroder vs. Mazany
Elizabeth Schroder, TKO, R2
Might be a reach but Schroeder just needs to survive one round and she will win the fight

Spangler vs. Hayes
Ray Hayes, SUB, R2
Great matchmaking, both fantastic amateurs
