Garcia better hope he gets a convincing win here. Already on a bad skid I can't imagine he will have a job if he does anything less than dominate Cody.

Kind if lackluster prelim fights to say the least. Although I am excited to see Head vs Catone, McKenzie vs Garcia, Khabilov, and McMann vs. Gaff. Really interested in seeing McMann because I think she has the grappling to hang with Ronda just wondering about her full MMA game.

Rustam! I wanna see some slams against Yancy!

Garcia should beat McKenzie fairly easily. If he doesn't, he should probably reevaluate his career.

Catone seems to get a lot of chances, he's in a must win situation here if he wants to keep his job.

Bedford is solid these days, his fight against Caraway should be interesting. I'm not sure on what to expect.

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

Looking forward to Khabilov again also, those slams and subsequent finish were my favorite KO sequence last year.

What time is the first prelim fight? I've mist the first few the last 3 events due to shitty listing and my absolute lack of timezone knowledge.

GMT is 5 hours ahead of PDT right?
