Just watched it.

Thank god for bogan aussie fans making that presser interesting because everything else boring.

Media questions we're crap too and no one asked about other potential fights on the card.

Where were the guys from Submission Radio?

They’re in America covering 241.

Volkanovski vs Holloway conclusively ruled out for 243 by Dana. Doesn’t know if Max could even make the weight.

Was probably always going to be a stretch time wise for max to back it up. I wonder if he had finished Edgar early and absorbed minimal damage it would have been more likely.

I thought Israel was entertaining in his own way. He's a bit cringe, but like Colby, he's trying to make things a bit more interesting.

Rob's never been much of a trash talker, it'd be nice if the guy would let loose a little and engage a bit.

That aside I'm ******* stoked for this one. Guaranteed to be a banger.

Jake Matthews' fight has been announced. He'll be fighting Swedish fighter Rostem Akman who is 0-1 in the UFC and has body hair that makes prime Gabriel Gonzaga look like he's suffering from alopecia.

Also, Khalid Taha, fresh from the deep undercard of the Poirier and Holloway show is fighting a debuting Bruno Silva.

And that’s all she wrote I think. Unless ticket sales are really struggling, in which case they might add another good fight who knows.
Yeah won't be anything else noteworthy added IMO

i heard ticket sales were at 30k already? No idea of the validity but seems hard to believe tbh

Didn't Dana say something about the co-main event not having been signed when Iaquinta/Hooker was announced? There might be one more decent fight to come, but the card is starting to look pretty full with the two new fights announced today.

I thought he said that before Iaquinta v Hooker was officially announced, maybe that’s what he was talking about.

I thought they were gonna hold back announcing the Iaquinta/Hooker fight incase they couldn't get the co-main event booked.....I'm hopeful that this announcement means the UFC is confident on getting the co-main event they want.

If not....Iaquinta/Hooker is not a bad co-main event to have.
