      the s in sw looks awfully like a 5 (five), which is very confusing. all the women straweight fight past opponents look like they are ranked in the 200’s until one takes a closer look. I wonder if there is anything you can do about it. maybe place a space between the number and the weight class
      Thanks

      Looks like you’re missing Joe Lauzon vs. Marcin Held, which should hopefully add a bit of oomph to the event.
