I suppose this match makes sense since they're both on win streaks, except for coming off of the big Boetsch win and the Jacare bout he dropped out of due to injury, this feels like a step down for Consta.
Consta is coming in with five straight wins, most notably over Boetsch and two really tough out MWs in Fukuda and Court, while Carmont is coming in on a 10 fight win streak, himself with five straight in the UFC, with that iffy Lawlor SD and some neutralizing fights against Larkin. Carmont is a giant MW and has the ability to really slow down fights, so I'm curious as to what this does to Consta's stock if he merely wins via UD? I'm not too sure this helps his stock as much as a bigger name would, such as Belcher(who I think is still on the shelf) or maybe Franklin, and I'm wondering how this matchup plays out, as it feels very dull to me...
I'd have preferred Vitor/Consta and Kennedy/Carmont.
