Yeah, rep and a half, mate. I really wish there would be more discussions on prelims because these ones sound very exciting. Winner is a beast! I'm telling you all that this guy will probably be the Alves of the Lightweight division. Not taking anything away from Ross Pearson, but Winner was pretty sick that night of The Ultimate Fighter 9 finale hence the lack of explosiveness he usually comes out with. He is one to watch, trust.

I'm pleased for Winner.

I'm 2-2 with my picks so far. I thought that Kelly would beat Siver.

Great defence on the ground, great ground and pound, great take downs BUT I always feel he could get knocked out at any moment, just seems to leave himself open a lot.
