    A crucial lightweight bout is headed down under.

    Is it a “crucial lightweight bout?”
    Fun? Yes. Interesting? Yes. Crucial? Nah.

    While I agree, by Australian UFC card standards having just this one extra decent fight turns the card into our equivalent of UFC 100. Usually we've got Dan Kelly fighting the uber driver who took him to the arena in the co-main.
