That considered, I'm still really surprised Phan/Siver wasn't on the televised prelims, seems like a no-brainer.
Yeah, I get adding some name value to the televised prelims to add some interest but Phan/Siver should not be buried on Facebook. The only thing I can think of is that this fight was originally moved to the card from the canceled 151, albeit in the form of Siver/Yagin. Perhaps that had something to do with its placement. Regardless, I'm actually going to this event and even with the two fights that have been canceled it's still an 11 fight card. There's still lots of action on the prelims and most importantly the main card has remained intact. I can't wait!
