The refs selection for the three fights sure dont impress. Two of them are bonified crooks and the third is iffy at best. Who assigns these MF’ers to these fights?!?!?!

[QUOTE=SHO_RULEZ;18647871]Mora doesn't have the pop to stop El Pero's stalking. Angulo TKO[/QUOTE] Interesting, I haven't put much thought into the fight, but I think Mora wins. I don't think Mora needs pop to beat Angulo, he's just awkward, and along…

A weird pick'em fight not because of how good they are, but how damaged they are
