So being the Missouri homer that I am I am super pumped to see Chandler and Askren fight. Chandler is a beast and Askren finished his last fight and it would be nice to see that trend continue, but this Russian may be tough. I like Rickels but I think Chandler will be to much for him. We also got King Mo the heavy weight final and a pitbull brother on the card. This is going to be a bad ass free card.
Special note that Askren is an awesome Frisbee golfer. Before he left Missouri he trained at ATT. The black belt I trained under trained there before he opened his own gym. He said Askren is awesome at Frisbee golf. Said his hands are very strong and he can throw the disc super far.
