Looks like it will be Streaming LIVE Friday on Sherdog at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

I'm really excited for the main event.
205 is definitely where Yvel should be.
I want to see him physically abuse the shit out of Alexander.
I think it'll be good for him after his Horrendous run in UFC.

Some of the other fights on the card could be some of the shittiest fighting you have ever seen... and for that reason, I'm slightly interested.

50 Year Old Maurice Smith with be bringing his 12W/13L record in against Kyle Keeney's 17W/15L record.
When your record has more Losses than Wins I usually think you should hang it up. But Maurice Smith has never actually lost ANY of his fights via TKO or KO.
So maybe That's what's keeping him fighting.

Then there's Tara LaRosa 20W/2L VS. Kelly Warren 3W/2L.
Why do I have a feeling that this fight might be lopsided?

And there's a lot of fights with Noobz:
Jerry Shapiro: 0 - 0 - 0 VS. Kevin Grace: 0 - 1 - 0
John Gettle: 0 - 0 - 0 VS. Darrio Mobley: 0 - 0 - 0
Tyler Perry: 1 - 0 - 0 VS. Wayman Carter: 0 - 0 - 0
Now if this is the Tyler Perry that makes those horribly atrocious films, then I wanna see this fight and hop to his God that he gets KTFO!!!

All in all this card will probably be really bad.
But that main event should be really good(as long as Houston doesn't use the same defense he did against Kimbo).

Yvel is going to destroy Alexander in the first.

I was hoping it was a typo and Gilbert was fighting Aleksander Emelianenko.

Houston Alexander is a far less exciting matchup.

Yvel probably kills Houston in short order.

Here was Yvel's last fight at LHW....

Gilbert Yvel vs Damian Dantibo - RFA 1 - Kearney, Nebraska - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOwLGoMp_Yo)

That was pretty brutal Yvel looked two weight classes bigger than his opponent not to mention a hell of allot more skilled

The only thing that guy did well in that fight was us hip toss to mount which he promptly lost

Well I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the fights I saw.



Houston was actually looking pretty good at the beginning of this fight.
But Yvel has some damn power!!!

Dakota COCKhrane might be going back to chugging loads... although he didn't look too bad at the beginning of his fight either.

And Maurice Smith... goddamn that man put on a fucking clinic. With a great ending to the fight.

Always been a HUGE Mo Smith fan, was one of the first guys I became a big fan of when I very first became immersed in UFC via VHS tapes from my local video store in the aftermath of UFC 40(my first UFC).

Was a tad concerned that Mo was fighting at age 50, but he looked to be in tremendous shape & still has some excellent kickboxing abilities, showed good timing and quickness for somebody his age and maybe I just had low expectations, but he impressed me.

Yvel/Alexander was about what I expected, Houston didn't look terrible by any stretch, but the chin has just gone and Yvel definately is a hurricane with those fists. He's a solid LHW challenger on the non-Zuffa scene.

Good for Mo, I'm genuinely happy for him and like that feeling. Not too hot on the play by play, felt like Mauro, McCully & Jens had alot of audio feedback problems I noticed. Nothing as bad as ROH's nightmare iPPV they held tonight....good gawd was it fucked.
