Never knew Andy Ogle was applying, he is legit and also a funny guy so I hope for house shinanigans Gutted Rob Sinclair didn't get in though Miles Jury is back too. And no Bud, I don't think so of those which I recognise they are all lightweight. 16 fights in the opening show; awesome!

P.S I had a fit when I saw Hull on the list cos I didn't know we had any fighters, but then I remembered Americans just aren't very original with place names. Still, I can get behind him

9 unbeaten fighters, 5 different nationalities (though most American), Bellator & WEC vets - on the whole it seems like they've got a good group together. The records are good this year too - lots of guys with 8-2, 7-1, 6-0 sorta records.

My top 5 picks are...
Myles Jury (TUF vet)
Dakota Cochrane (beat Varner)
Daron Cruickshank (beat Ricci)
Jordan Rinaldi (beat Bermudez)
Mike Rio (beat Juusola)

Also interested to see how Jon Tuck does against these Americans, and also how Krause does after going 0-3 in WEC & Bellator.

Good selection, but does the UFC really need MORE Lightweights?

I hope they will let us bet on the fights since it will be live this time around and count and all that, would make it more fun.
