@brad this is what you posted about the match-up


Prazeres vs. Naurdiev
Michel Prazeres, DEC
Maaaaan.... What a tough draw for your UFC debut. Still better draw than Lando & Horcher had in their debuts. A win would be a tough task to complete, Prázeres has ONLY lost twice in 28 scraps. We'll see I guess. Goood luck Naurdiev, you're gonna need some






You did damn good on picking the card, hell most people did but trying to take anything away from Naurdiev is just pure idiocy. Prazares has only lost 3 times in 29 fights and has never been finished but now its "there's plenty that could beat him and Naurdiev should've finished him"....yea, no. 

All good man. Moving on.
