[QUOTE=BigZ44;17941531]Wait, is this an eliminator at bantam or super fly? This says bantam, but both guys are in the top 10 in the superfly rankings. Either way, I favor Casimero in this fight. Don't know how much I would like…

Wait, is this an eliminator at bantam or super fly? This says bantam, but both guys are in the top 10 in the superfly rankings. Either way, I favor Casimero in this fight. Don't know how much I would like…
