  2. KILL GREG JACKSON!!! says:

    Ok, now this card right here is stacked, capped by an awesome main event. Having crazy Matt Mitrione on the undercard ain’t bad either. Thumbs up to Mr. Dana White for ending this year on a positive not. Just hope that none of the fighters on this card gets hurt in training, fellas, don’t go too hard in training, save some for the 29th.

  3. lolziez says:

    his last fight with Kongo was horrible boring, hope that was just a off night and he gets back to the old meathead

  4. 4_3_Zone says:

    He has no ground game, just stand and bang, but must have scared Tito into retirement.
