Another solid card tonight!! Some tough fights to predict. I think in terms of quality they may someone be even better than last weeks. (Probably just jinxed it now, tho.)

I'm surprised Kenney is getting no love on here. I think he wins a close decision.

Le is fun to watch. I think he could get a Ko. 

I think Spohn will be a bit too much for DeAnda but i doubt he finishes him.

I went with Sidney Outlaw by finish too. More so because he's the more familiar fighter. I know what he's capable of, his opponent is a bit of a question mark for me.

No clue why but I always mix up Dan Spohn and Jake Heun.It's not cause they were on the same TUF either I was mixing them up before and still mix them up.I had Deanda thinking Spohn was the super inconsistent yet talented lose fights he should win Heun.Good thing I looked at records.I like Angel at MW and it's still of course a winnable fight but I agree with DS Spohn should come out on top,likely a decision.

It's early, but this commentary pair could actually be solid. They sound good so far.

At Faber's golf tourney last week they auctioned off a trip to vegas to go to DWTNCS and my buddy bought it.  Trying to sneak my way in and have a chat with Bald Bozo ****.

the only one who impressed me and deserved a shot in the UFC was Sean O'Malley. and maybe Casey Kenney if they're going with two contracts per show.

I don't know how you don't also sign Le honestly. That head kick was devastating and the fight was entertaining. I'd be surprised if we don't see him again on one of these contender series.

Complete ******** that they snubbed Le. In all honesty, O'Malley didn't impress me very much. He showed that his defense is questionable in that fight. I think he'll follow the path of a lot of Lookin' For a Fight hypejobs and lose his first fight before floundering out and having a mediocre and short career in the UFC.

You guys are savage. I went 5-0 and finished 19th. 

I think Le, since he did compete on TUF 22 and showed holes in his ground game he'll need another nice performance. I wouldn't necessarily call it him getting snubbed but we'll see him again and if he's deserving he should be able to win again and get a shot.

Kenny best a tough CJ Hamilton. And his record pro and ammy is legit. That's a guy i think could get signed. But bare with me i didn't watch tonight's fights because of work just going based on results and what i heard from a few buddies that watched. They did praise both O'Malleys and Le's performance and told me that Kenny/CJ had a war.

He showed improvements in his ground game in this fight, though. He's been training with Ryan Hall, and he disengaged from Stoj when he tried to take the fight to the ground and sprawled him when he tried to take him down. I was pretty hyped about him, I was disappointed when they gave O'Malley a shot over him. 

I really am not optimistic about O'Malley's future in the promotion, though. I don't think he can handle a strong grappler or a strong striker. He seems untested on the ground and his striking defense showed holes in this fight.

O'Malley is only 22, he was was facing a dangerous dude and still have lots of room for improvement. Le KO was great, but he was facing a small striker with almost zero movement, it was a perfect opponent for his kicks, which are pretty dangerous. I think he'll have trouble with any good pressure wrestler he face. I think Kenney's high paced game is solid and more promissing on the long run.
