Looking at the card, UFC 222 would be a show I'd look forward to, if you deleted the main event and main evented Ortega/Edgar. As such, fuck it, I might even go to a very unbusy bar for it, why not?

I mean:

Cyborg Squash is what it is
Edgar/Ortega: great fight, title eliminator
O’Malley/ Soukhamthath: O'Malley is one of the dozen or so guys who if they keep winning have some low key star power potential
Struve/Arlovski: totally fine HW scrap that is probably more interesting on paper than reality and yet...
Zingano/Viera: good fight, Cat's return, maybe a low key title eliminator, worst case scenario either lady could be two fights from a title fight

FS1:
Dern/Yoder: Dern is definitely someone with superstar potential - this one's really interesting for that alone
Dariush/Green: two reasonably interesting fighters of note
Dodson/Muhnoz: legit great fight that might have been the best fight of last weekend's show if it hadn't gotten cancelled
Dolloway/Lombard: For this spot on the card? A totally good fight.

221 sucks, however. Outside of the main event it is barely to Fight Pass levels. The third best and most relevant fight of the show is Ben Nguyen vs Jussier Formiga, which, I mean... come on.

becoming more and more clear how detrimental the wme takeover has been for ufc. recent events have been like C, C-minus territory.

Yoel already shouldn't have been in this fight (I mean, Whitaker, obv but also Gastelum or even Weidman? Romero just lost a MW title shot) and this... ugh.

i think he'll make it on 2nd attempt, fight still happens but no interim for Yoel if misses

I'm glad it's Yoel over those other two

Yoel in the 2nd or Luke by decision. Guess everyone is expecting Yoel to gas

Havent like almost all of the last ten fighters that missed weight ended up winning? lol

187.7

Rockhold can win the interim title, Romero is unable to.

Luke is so pompous, not even Cormier can get me to root for him.

Like to see bobby knux hold that belt all year

I have always liked Luke just fine. Have disliked Romero for some time. I think it goes back to the 'No for Gay Jesus' thing (that I do realize he didn't actually say and yet...?)

'Don't Forget Jesus'

Which, really, makes more sense, as a set of words one might say. They may have meant the same thing, to be fair, but less damning, overall.

anyone watching this? might be the first ppv I'll miss since 210. Might hit a bar for the main if work is slow but even a $10 cover and a drink isn't really worth it for one fight

I'm pretty passively watching a stream. It's been... mediocre. Matthews/Jingliang fight was good though there was a terrible eye poke (Jingliang stuck two finger gouged into his eye during a completed guillotine that broke it and received (of course) no penalty). Pedro and Tuivasa had early KOs but... it's hard to care much?

Romero telling a punchy Rockhold that he loves him is the most brutal thing I've ever seen. Can't believe no one from the UFC was in there to separate them.

that's awesome! big fan of BE. i honestly like that their comment section is usually incredibly civil and they throw in the occasional joke article.

you're gonna do just fine. maybe one of these days i'll do the same and throw my name in the hat.
