Fight for the Troops 2 is live on Spike tonight at 9 eastern, with a couple of prelims being streamed on Facebook. That’s actually a pretty cool concept and for a social media geek like me, opens up a ton of new avenues. But enough about that stuff, you’re here because we’re going to tell you who’s going to win and who to watch for. Also, our own TJ will be cageside so we’ll try to get some reports from him as well. Maybe even for our brand-new Twitter page, which is: @interrobangspts. Follow us today, thank us later.

So only 3 unanimous picks, which is kinda rare for us. Somehow I have the early lead in the 2011 Challenge after UFC 125. I’m at 5-2-1 while the other guys are tied at 3-4-1. TJ held Armando and I off to win the 2010 edition a few weeks ago, and it’s a long road until next December.
Enjoy the fights and don’t forget while they’re happening tonight. If you can, make a call during the broadcast, support those who fight for all of us, and support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
Check back Sunday for results and commentary. We’ll talk a bit about the card on next week’s BangCast, but not too much since conference title games are about 24 hours from now. That’ll take up a lot of the show. Also, next week I’ll return to do my due dillegance and actually write up a preview of Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg. I know we’ve all been lazy since the first of the year, but we can change. New Year’s Resolution and stuff.
