    this event is better then some of the ppv’s lately.

  2. allmightysandman says:

    it’s been fun watching Varner’s resurgence….should be a good fight. JV may have a tough time dealing with the length of JL’s arms but he is probably used to that.

    should be good.

  3. WrestlingRules says:

    I like this one. Striker against a bjj guy. Varner by KO!!!

    • B-rad says:

      Yeah good matchup, pretty sure varner came froma grappling background, but hes very well rounded, but so is Lauzon, he ko’d Pulver with one shot, and planted guiliard witha lead hook.. i think JLO takes it by sub

  4. allmightysandman says:

    he has good TD and sub defense so it could definitely go that way!

  5. WrestlingRules says:

    What the hell is on his shoulder??? Is that a crab???!! I think he should go into that fight and touch gloves with Varner with that thing on his shoulder. Do you think it is against the rules???

  6. stephen riddle says:

    Hell yeah stacked card its too good to be true someones gona get hurt and mess the card up! But i really hope not!

  7. Nando says:

  8. tdjhdcj says:

  9. YeahRightMan says:
