Moreno needs to move up to 122. So that GBP can make Mares vs Moreno. I got Mares beating Moreno if they fight.

an injury would have been leaked so who knows, but as a previous post put it, & I agree, match him w/the Viking, good contrast of styles, though Abner's experience level is far greater...
