Undercard bout


Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Shark Attack (ranked 981 p4p, 137 weight class) and Will Genia (ranked 943 p4p, 130 weight class). Shark Attack had real problems making weight for this fight. After initially coming in at 171.7lbs, he had two hours to make the official fight weight. He made it but it will have taken a lot out of him to cut those extra few pounds. Well, the cameraman is lingering on a pretty young lady for a bit too long there. Keep your eyes on the prize buddy or you'll miss the fighter intros!

These two fighters really are very evenly matched on the feet - it will be fascinating to see who can assert themselves in that aspect of the fight.
