    I’d love to see a few of our top ranked featherweights and bantamweights on this card… Nick Denis would be my top choice!

    I’m sort of surprised they’d have it at the corral. Considering how under served Calgary is when it comes to MMA I would have expected them to go to the SaddleDome. I’ll be there either way but the corral seems rather small.

    Unfortunatly with WEC 48 being less than two months before WEC 49 we probably won’t see Aldo, Faber, Henderson, Brown or Cerrone! Hopefully we’ll get Torres at least!
