Not a whole lot going on this weekend, although we'll probably get to see Gamboa win a fake interim belt, and the undercard has what I think could be a very interesting matchup involving a good European prospect making his first U.S. television appearance. A showcase fight for sure, as Aydin throws his punches with bad intentions and Ouali is there to be hit, but it should be exciting while it lasts.

There are also several interesting untelevised fights this weekend, including Silence Mabuza vs Yonnhy Perez in a title eliminator in South Africa, a title rematch between Malcolm Klassen and Cassius Baloyi in South Africa, and the return of Prawet Singwancha on Thailand Channel 7 today. As an aside, Thailand Channel 7 appears to have live streaming, so if anyone knows how to speak Thai and can figure out how to get that to work, the info would be appreciated.
