Arroyo made weight for UFC 247, coming in at 186, but later was found on the floor, conscious, but in obvious pain. And ambulance was called, and he was taken to the hospital. The fight vs. Trevin Giles has been canceled.

The bout was at the top of the late prelims, a placement designed to highlght fights so potentially good they can coax a fan on the fence to cough up $60 to watch the PPV.

The James Krause is a shrewd business man so he must really like his chances.

 

I'm curious what the line is.

 

Respect to him. I'm gonna assume he'll be undersized in this matchup.

Yes, and even then they will probably try to blame it on an underlying condition so they can let it continue.

Krause is very good everywhere. Very careful. He's giving away weight & power sure but 185 is not nearly as deep as 155 & 170. Giles deserves props too coming off losses & facing a far more experienced fighter on no notice.

commission also deserves props for letting the fight happen

James is on a 6 fight win streak. Wonder how far back a loss would set him? He's not inside the top 15 in  ufc rankings was hoping to see him fight somone in the top 10 see where he is now.
