One Response to “Cage Rage 17 Card”

  1. LOL at the ‘Friends’ storyline come to life in the Abbott fight but its a fight I don’t really care about, much like everything else Abbott has done this century.

    Manhoef-Freeman and Cyborg-Santos have the potential to be just awesome wars.

    Olivier-Pickett is a cracking rematch that should settle a few arguments.

    Will be interesting to see how much of the attendance is put down to the “big stars” like Tank when Legeno and Epstein will likl;ey sell far more tickets and have a crazy Takayama-Frye type fight with utterly bonkers interviews.

    Miller-Berry – short slugfest.

    Matsui-Galesic is a mtach up I’m not a fan of. Galesic has serious potential but Matsui can make him look bad.

    Basically a typical Cage Rage show, just knocked up a notch or two – tons of fights that promise out and out brawling.

    I’ll definitely be there – even though I absolutely despise London in the summer.
