Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Harold Nicolas (ranked 313 p4p, 45 weight class) and Izuagbe Ugoh (ranked 1075 p4p, 166 weight class). Chooooooooon!

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Zane Mason (ranked 2 p4p, 1 weight class) and Desmond Glass (ranked 62 p4p, 10 weight class). Glass has chosen Across 110th Street by Bobby Womack as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
