@Lord Zardoz ! hey now! Are you assuming Josh Appelt's gender / saying that Alpha Midgets can't Bang ?? take it back!

Should be another good night of fights. I think fight of the night will be Davis/Yusuff(shocker I know) and I'm interested to see how Crute and Newell do as well. I think we could easily see 3 contracts given out tonight.

I'll be tuning in for Crute.Newell will probably get a contract whether he wins or not.

Can't believe Newell is a dog. If I were a gambling degenerate, I'd be all over that.

I had picked Hooper until I watched some vids of the Hawaiian kid earlier! Glad I did!! He has WAY more power.. hooper isn’t that strong yet, doesn’t mean he can’t pull off a sub, but I see a KO coming..

Very rough first for Hooper. Kawaihae much more polished striking and much, much stronger.

This kid aint ready for the UFC. He's at least three years off. and if he takes more high level fights at this stage his chin will be gone before he even gets going.

He doesn't need a contract, he needs a warm bottle of milk

And we both run out of gas but since it's on the ground Hooper is dominating.

Kid is made of rubber and has excellent reactive jujitsu, but his striking, and striking defense is deplorable. Neither guy is UFC worthy yet.
