Fight I was really looking forward to scrapped due to a covid test. So annoying

Colby Decision
Hardy KO
RDA beats Moicano
Holland should but he's an idiot, as is Brazil Cowboy. Should be entertaining
Liked Mitchel initially but as we get close I think Barboza smashes his legs standing and keeps it upright long enough to win

You know its dumb, you know it makes no difference really to the fight. But feed that main event hatred into my veins. Love it.
Listening to these too go at it for the presser will be one of those great moments.

This card kinda crept up on me.

Like most....into the main event but not much else.

Unpopular opinion, preferring Colby over Mas. Rather see a Holloway - Volk situation for a 3rd fight with the guy 0-2 than Mas.

If Usman takes care of Edwards, really makes 170 in a bit of a holding pattern.

Really needs Colby to win and cut a sick promo and then Chimaev to destroy Burns and that sets up that fight.

Usman and Izzy should both go up after 1 more defense each. What more do they have left? Usman wins the 185 title also

Hadnt considered that but thats a great idea. Usman vs Whittaker would be a cracker and meanwhile Izzy can spend time putting on size.

I don't think Usman beats Vettori or Whittaker, even Costa if on weight would be very tough. But I'd pay to see any of those before any 170 fight left other than Khamzat

I think he beats all not named Whittaker (he beats Izzy but they'd never fight). Even Whittaker would be 5050 at worst for Usman

Vettori would likely neutralise the grappling and he isn't getting rocked with that chin. Could see Usman winning based on pace/gas tank

Rob one of the best anti wrestlers in the UFC and his striking is classes above Usman.

Both would be fascinating fights but I would have Usman as the slight underdog in both. Give him the edge against Costa.

Anyone else feel like the Colby/Masvidal beef is fake and they’re still good mates?

I’m paying attention. It feels manufactured. It generates interest, but it’s BS IMO. Good on them though.
I dont think you are, So Jon Jones, Joanna and Dustin are all in on the joke? They make nothing out of it but they go along with it cause why not right.

You seem upset that I’ve ruined your WWF fantasy storyline. Of course they get something out of it. If you’re a UFC fighter who does and says nothing, you become irreverent. If you’re putting yourself out there and making a name for yourself then of course people are going to tune in and follow your career closely.

Colby survived in the UFC on the back of creating a persona. Laughable to suggest no one else goes along with it, especially when you consider how well he has done from it.

the beef started when they were in different weight classes and before they ever looked like fighting

Doesn’t mean they can’t still play it up today. Saying they want to kill one another. Over what? How long ago did this feud start? They all play up their storylines. Of course there is some real hatred but for the most part they all do it for $. McGregor was the best at it. “It’s just business” he reassured Khabib. Think about what he meant by that.

Yeah mate Khabib was in on the whole thing. Especially when Mcgregor was calling his a wife a towel head and his manager a terrorist. The dolly through the window that nearly cost Michael Chiesa his eye. All fake

You got it all figured out hey knackers.

On McGregor’s end it was.
