Which side of the family does Rolles Jr come from? Wasn't Renzo in his corner. (I can't remember.)

Sorry for taking the thread slightly off topic.
Helio's side, Rolls grandson i think. Renzo and Rolles had a little beef not so long back you can listen to interviews from both sides over at the fight works podcast. End result is they are still family but they have many differences and philosphy's. Not sure if he was in the corner.

it will be an interesting fight for sure but my bet is on Renzo. He's stepping up to avenge the family's loss.

you may be right....I just like stirring the pot a bit. I do favor Hughes for this but it really could go either way. It is a fight, anything can happen.

I picked up on that mate, stirring the pot is all good, I do the same and I completely agree, anything can happen.

It's perfectly fine, and I mistyped anyway. It's Carlos>Rolls>Rolles.

Thanks, which ship were you working on? I'm trying to remember who was docked there last summer....

Too bad that Nate, Demian and Chael just fought, and Dan Henderson is unavailable....not sure who Anderson will fight unless he moves up to LHW....
