    Diaz better set his clock, and arrange for a follow up wake up call from the front desk, cab and directions to the press confrence…

  2. krafty11 says:

    Cant wait for the 29th! And on another note, I think Cerrone vs Siver should be on the main card instead of Jorgensen/Curran. just my opinion..

  3. Dan says:

    BJ looks fat. He hasn’t been training for this fight. His cardio will come into question again. It’s ashame because BJ has so much talent.

  4. P R O D I G Y says:

  5. ggfggf says:

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.
