Lightweight – Jim Miller vs. Joe “J-Lau” Lauzon
Jessica: Ohhhh dang! These two are throwing down again? Heck to the yes, thank you, Joe Silva! Both guys are in gatekeeper status, but they’re still capable of putting on rad performances. I think Lauzon will be a little sharper, a little more on point with his kickboxing, forcing this into a more grappling-heavy fight. Lauzon will get the edge in some scrambles, and cinch up a fight-ending submission late. Lauzon wins by third round submission.
Jason: Oh hi, pleasant surprise. These are the type of fights these two should be in now. We know they’re no longer contenders, so why not just put on a show. They’re beloved fighters and we just want to see them get bloody. I’m going with J-Lau again, but I’m fine with a trilogy.
Bill: Yeah, I think Lauzon is taking this one, but I’m just happy this is happening. Maybe we’d get more good fights like this if there were fewer events good lord.
Strawweight – “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant vs. “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings
Jessica: I hope, hope, hope that Paige has been training as much as she’s been dancing as of late. I’m not a huge fan of Rawlings since she seems kind of dumb in a lot of what she says (Feminism is bad because it means I have to kill my sons!). VanZant wins by decision.
