Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“This is a fantastic match up and, even though two friends of mine will be fighting, I am really looking forward to it. THE GAME Lepont is extremely experienced and brings a lot of aggression into the cage, although he is on the small side for a welterweight. HAJA will feel he has the better ground game but he seemed to run out of steam in his last fight and with Lepont likely to set an extremely fast pace stamina could be an issue for him again. HAJA has the size advantage but THE GAME probably has better cardio, I see this as being a 50/50 fight and absolutely anything could happen on the night.”
