Coming up we have a bantamweight MMA rules bout between Usko Matonen (ranked 576 p4p, 25 weight class) and Nigel Nobody (ranked 772 p4p, 38 weight class). On his way into the cage it seems that Usko Matonen has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Usko Matonen seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?

Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Sam McCullen (ranked 1015 p4p, 150 weight class) and Michael Salazar (ranked 503 p4p, 73 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think McCullen might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to The Foggy Dew. 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?
