    That's nice! I've always thought it seemed like a long way to go for the featherweights, just for a random 3 minute melee twice a day. At least this way you're participating in the whole show a bit...

    Portsmouth sounded like a bit of a baptism of fire! Seems Jibril acquitted itself well, in any case.
