Zarah Fairn Dos Santos, TKO, R2
***! People are still picking Meegan ****** Anderson! Do you guys just follow her Instagram? There's no way you watch her fight and get beat by ****** Cindy Dandios and then pick her to win a fight? Oh well hopefully I can get good odds on Dos Santos and make a few bucks! Cheers virgins!

They need to cut the women featherweights already. There's only 2 decent fighters in the whole weight class. Cyborg and Julia Budd. 3 if you want to count Nunes but there's no reason to keep them, zero potential to grow.

Hooker vs. Iaquinta is such an interesting fight.. Al's durability is the x-factor but that Cowboy fight was hellacious. Is he still New Jersey tough? 


Was that too corny?
