  3. Yeah this card actually looks pretty good.

  4. The fight I'm really looking foward to is Babalu and Faijeo. Thats going to be crazy.

  5. Jake is gonna get his ass kicked.

    But in the slight chance that he doesn't he'll finally get some respect and people will stop calling him overrated.

  6. i think jake has a great changes…he is super good on the ground and robbie is super good on the feet..i think it can g both ways
