They should put this on the Gamboa card. Then, focus on Caballero either unifying with John, Dib, or the Garcia/Salido winner.

Caballero is a joke, talks a lot and when it is time to step it up he pulls back. In his mind he should be making huge purses

[QUOTE=mrmojorisin1;12476514]TMT gonna pick this one up.[/QUOTE] Probably put it on the Gamboa card. Caballero already said he was gonna be on it... Or maybe not. They would only have a month to prepare. :dunno:
