Atleast Roger looks like he might be a serious contender in the future.
Agreed, although of course the main card were all fun fights, there were a few mismatches on paper. Cyborg was on a 1 fight win streak in Strikeforce and has a very average record. While Lawler hasn't won two fights in a row since 2007/2008. Then there is of cause Hershel getting spoon fed and probably the only legit matchup of gracie vs prangley, which really showcased that in a year or so Gracie could be a serious threat.

But yeah it was enjoyable. I'm glad cyborg took it to the ground cause I love watching the Diaz ground game. Certainly found it funny how he took him down with 30 seconds left just trying to secure the round and ended up getting armbared.
