  1. I may be a little biased but I feel Mark is a much more exciting fighter to watch anyway. Too bad for the promotion, but great exposure for both of these lightweights.

  2. Totally agree Jeff. Holst/Hill should have been main event. I will be watching this one on the online PPV.

    it was going to be monson on top either way (literally). as for holst vs hill, exposure is definitely the word. i like corey hill, he seems like a nice guy… but his supposed boxing ability will look a lot more like just a rangy jab tonight against mark’s thai toolkit.

    If it was a guaranteed victory for Monson why would he be the one that backed out???? Scott Barrett is the one who actually showed up for the weigh ins….

    Mark Holst wins in 2nd round, great fight by both guys…. Corey is one tuff guy to hold on to the armbar then the Kimura for so long…. Congrats Mark.
