‘Don’t Sleep on This’ is a new segment I’m going to pump out leading up to every card about a fighter and/or matchup that should not be missed (a/k/a slept on).

I’ve gone with her to Hannibal for tours of caves, to Windyville for remediation closures, and to her house while she cared for bats she cares for.
