What do you think?

If I read this right, Lucus is a 33-1 favorite! Read Fightnews here:

I don't think this is a Showtime caliber card, considering what they have provided in the past. But it is interesting because both fighters have had some controversial losses. I don't know, I see this as a stay busy fight that could have been on standard cable. Thoughts?

Honestly I would be surprized if Matthysse lost. Hes very hitable. I think hes a good puncher but he can be bested. Hes not the be all end all that a lot of people claim.

i would think that walker would not be taking this fight if virgil hunter didn't think they had a chance to win it. with that in mind....i believe they have a plan. whether they can execute it or not remains to be seen. i'm pulling for walker! his pops recently passed so i know he has plenty of motivation going into this one. i'm also going to drop a little coin on this one and try and cash in.

I have no interest in Matthysse/Dallas...NOW, had it been Matthysse/Lundy, then I'd be a bit pumped. I've seen Dallas fight a few times on FNFs, but I truly don't remember his performances all that well. I THINK (I think, I think, I think) either Dallas or one of his opponents came into a fight waaaay over the weight limit, and the fight went on anyway. Mind you, I THINK that was a Dallas fight, but dont quote me.

I dont like the idea of this fight being at a 33-1 odds...shit usually goes ALL wrong with those kind of odds. Matthysse can very well lose, but I dont feel like it will be this weekend. Well...this 33-1 odds wont leave the back of my mind. Lol

Im more pumped for Soto-Karass/Aydin...those dudes are gonna go for broke. I love to see guys like Karass, with several losses and an extremely huge will to win...it always makes for a great fight!

I actually have Karass by TKO...I feel like he's gonna catch Aydin with something that he just doesn't see coming. Dont get me wrong, Aydin can take a punch and he packs one as well, but I think Karass will land something retarded, and change the pace of the fight. I see the tide of this fight changing several times.

for me...virgil hunter is the game changer in that matthysse/dallas match up. it should be interesting for as long as it lasts. add the fact that dallas' father passed recently...and the outrageous odds...this is reminiscent of tyson/douglass in my view.

soto-karass/aydin will be a war. i'm going with aydin by ko. soto-karass has been on a really bad run lately. loss to maidana, ko'd by rosado, losses to mike jones... i almost feel bad for him.
