First time in a long time I have looked forward to every single fight on a main card.

Probably because the women involved are all capable of putting on a show.

Yeah this is going to be unmissable, great opportunity for Jimmy Crute, a good win here puts him right in contender category. It worked out well in hindsight, Johnny Walker is a risky fight, you don't really know what he's going to be able to do on a given night.

Masvidal gets another payday can't see him beating Usman.

I'm surprised how quickly Usman has backed up from the last fight.
Tbf Usman is the one who will be loving this pay day.

I dont know who else in the division will bring the PPV numbers of Masvidal

I'm hopeful of an Usman KO. I'm tipping he'll be pretty keen to pummel Mas; let's hope his striking has improved even more but more importantly, the killer instinct is there.

his striking would have to improve by 50% to do that imo

Usman will only stand and trade punches with wrestlers who have poor stand up

I hope Usman isn't too proud to just wrestlefu** Masvidal. His striking has improved, yes, but both Colby and Burns were able to land a few big shots and I think Masvidal is a better striker than those two.

I think he's smart enough to grapple from the beginning.

Yeah, Masvidal has more knockout power then those guys. All for Usman doing some ground and pound on him but exchanging on the feet would be dangerous.

Yep, very much feel like Crute is on the way up as Smith is going down.

Training almost every day with Sam Greco, killer ******* ju jitsu with a killer Kimura. Crutes a beast man, he's the most well rounded fighter we have i reckon.

Robs better and his take down defence has stood up against the best but Crutes power puts him over the edge imo. That's how highly I rate him
