    Looking at the top 3 prelims too. Especially interested in Jake Smith after interviewing him.

    Have you been to San Jose a few times? I'd recommend Kukor's House Of Pizza and Mark's Hot Dogs if you have time friend...

    Good card.

    I reckon Kongo will beat Bader via kicks to the balls and stalls at the walls.

    no I haven't. I looked up House of Pizza on yelp and it's got one of the worst ratings~ lol. It seems like the new owners aren't as good as one before.
    My wife and I stopped searching for all these gourmet pizza places, instead we just order from Papa John's Combination w/ extra cheese, extra sauce, extra bake and extra garlic sauce. It hits the spot.

    you can use "GET30" and get 30% off on any online orders, every single time.

    LoL I think House of Pizza is the best pizza place ever. For a chain I'll go with Round Table Pizza. When it's hard times any pizza is good though...

    We have a joint around here called Spinelli’s that gets some iffy reviews, and I think it’s one of the best pizza places in town. I’m not a fan of “gourmet” pizza. Give me NY style down and dirty.

    Bader has the wrestling alright, wouldn't be surprised if he can out grapple the bigger man.

    Jokes aside I have a feeling Kongo outpoints him though, if not he will be giving up the belt to Vitaly.

    That said the Fedor KO was a beauty and he man handled meathead. I just don't see him hanging onto the HW title much longer.

    Sounds about right. The place I mentioned gets called "House Of Grease" but it's the best. Yeah I'll pass on "gourmet" too all I need is lots of cheese and pepperoni and I'm a happy Thug...

    I'll tell you what, when someone asks me about "the best pizza" whatever, I remember going to a place...just a sidewalk joint, in Times square.
    I took a picture of that fuckin pizza, 2 slices. I never understood the terminology "slice" until that day, when I grabbed a down-low chunk of Hawaii, fire roasted red onion with ham and pineapple barely under world class mozzarella; black olives hiding.
    The other was onion and mushroom with greens and alfredo. Off the charts.
    You know how you get 2 things and the other was better than the one you thought you'd die on?
