Hoping this is the first of many embarrassing losses in a row for Elias. 


If The****** is the 17th best MW on the planet than MW is absolutely pathetic.

Can't wait for Valentina to beat JJ again. My little pony couldn't beat her in Muay thai, and she's not going to beat her in MMA either.

Valentina by domination.

Yeah, glad they are putting the fight back on and moving back to the Toronto card. While I don't really think Cormier/Lewis will be competitive, it fits better on the NY card with the solid fights on the main. Toronto needed the 2nd title fight.
