Casey Kenney then closes out the show previewing his scrap against Heili Alateng. The bantamweight discusses whether or not he was surprised this was his opponent given the momentum he has. Kenney also talks about being able to compete on the card with his teammate, Kyle Phillips, and where a win over Alateng puts him in the division.
