Vargas was very solid in Bradley fight, but that`s all. Guy is just not high class.

[QUOTE=BluDivision;19174795]Silly rabbit.... styles make fights[/QUOTE] No Vargas is just trash.

My kind of fight...evenly matched fighters in the SAME weight class. Say what you will but both are ambitious and solid professionals. Would rather see Thurman pick one of these for his "tune up" instead of Zab.
