  1. Really? I mean this guy might be great, and hevery well could upset Harris. But doesn’t Harris deserve a more high profile fight than this?

  2. Falcao is not great. He is actually pretty bad for a guy with a nice glossy record. On the other hand, Harris should just keep taking fights and working on his game. He will finish the year with four fights, which is something many fighters would kill for in the UFC.
