A great card's a great card. Would I prefer all fights drop a spot with a title fight added up top - sure... But yeah, no complaints. She stacked.Shows that you don't need a title fight to build a great card.
No the BMF gimmick doesn't count
Looks like Poirier is looking to avoid this as well - https://www.si.com/mma/2023/07/25/ufc-291-dustin-poirier-justin-gaethje-title-shot-on-the-lineCompletely ignoring the BMF nonsense personally
It's been enough time since their last fight that not only have they both improved a lot in their overall games, but they've maybe also both lost a step. They both looked very hittable in their Oliveira and Chandler fights, but with their offence looking better than ever. If it goes 5 rounds they'll be a pair of absolutely battered men in that cage. Leaning to DP TKO.
“I don’t think it goes 25 minutes,” says Poirier. “If it does, me and him will chat about it in the hospital, because that’s where we’ll be going.”

Both guys are true examples of that warrior mindset, for better or worse. There might be some crap here and there, especially during fight promo, but generally level-headed, decent guys who live that life; go into that cage prepared and willing not to come out.On Embedded Gaethje said for him it’s a straight up car crash. Two men walk in, one walks out. Words pretty close to that.
He’s one scary dude.

Jan didnt look great last time, is getting old, and Pereira hits like a truck. Stylistically Jan can do it but i just sense AP landing something. No bets, just watching the 2 main fights as a fanYeah I feel like wherever he grew up he was the toughest guy in town and even the big footballer dudes would have avoided him.
Pereira is ******* scary too, I've got Jan on the weekend though, if he does the smart thing and takes it to the canvas he should win well, good bet at 1.80 too.
Card is not bad overall, Jake Matthews fighting too.
Yeah this sucks. Hope Bud/Spence doesnt clash with the 2 main fights hereAre the fights on at the same time as the boxing tomorrow, keen for both tbh
When I watched the boxing pre-fight presser, the host made a point that the PPV has a "special" start time of 8pm EST (10am AEST)....The main event ringwalk is expected around 1pm AEST & the UFC PPV starts at 12pm AEST...So I think there has been a bit of a concerted effort for at least both main events to hopefully not clash.Yeah this sucks. Hope Bud/Spence doesnt clash with the 2 main fights here
According to sportsbet
Jan/AP is at 115 and the main at 145
Bud/Spence is at 130 but boxing always runs late
Might get lucky with some quick finishes in UFC and boxing running 30-45 mins over
