Mickle and Velez aren't just a pair of UCL vets, they were champions in the organization, so this one was compelling for that reason alone. But since graduating to the NYFE, Mickle has carved out a heck of a reputation as a slugger and a career trajectory that seems destined for bigger things. Velez, meanwhile, just likes to fight.
Admittedly, this bout is a bit of a head-scratcher because of Velez's actions. Still, it's worth a look.
