Welp, this fight was supposedly cancelled, but now it's back on, as Tarec's doctor has cleared him for the fight. 

Strange scenario, since now Story knows he is apparently fighting on a compromised knee.

tarec's game is overrated and story's underrated. especially like this pick after the injury drama.
