Undercard bout

Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Joey Faolin (ranked 160 p4p, 214 weight class) and Gwynn Evans (ranked 22 p4p, 30 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Faolin might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to It Ain’t a Crime by House of Pain. Gwynn Evans has the better chin. Will he look to stand and bang today?
