Im also excited about Kenji Osawa vs. Rani Yahya.

care to expand on how Torres has failed to impress, just a little curious because he totally dominated Maeda, Owned Tapia and went to war against Mitsukagi

dude, really? What does it take to get you impressed? Torres has an awesome BJJ and Muay Thai game and will always be looking to finish a fight. He won't coast to victory, he'll always be looking for the finish and he seemingly cannot have a boring fight. The man is pretty legendary.

Bowles is in for a big stepup in competition here and while i think he'll be competitive i just can't see Miguel losing here. Interested in the Cruz/Benevidez matchup seeing as the winner is pretty much getting a shot at the winner of Bowles/Torres. Both guys are solid fighters so its bound to be an entertaining fight.

Not that excited about Mizugaki/Curran but they both need a win tbh. Mizugaki needs one to get back some momentum that he lost during his fight against Torres and Curran just needs to get a win to stop himself from going 0-4 in his last 4 fights (admitedly 2 of those fights were against Faber and Brown so there's no shame in losing to the 2 top featherweights atm)

Lightbulb Flyweight

I heard somewhere that Bowles will drop to flyweight if he looses to Torres!

That's thinking positively Too bad the card isn't getting as much love with everybody talking about UFC 101. I just think it's gonna be an awesome weekend.

Wooooo, only 3 hours to WEC 42 and this time I don't even have to search for a stream because it will be streamed live online on their website outside of the US! Looking forward to see Mizugaki fight again and of course Torres vs Bowles.

Omg, it's soon. As someone said, it's been getting shadowed by UFC 101. But I already know this is going to be 10x better than last night. Can't wait!!
