I don't think it'll be any of these

Nate's still acting weird about fighting on the card but that might end up being the main if they can't get anything bigger

What's weird is that UFC's website stopped listing the weidman-rockhold fight(which i think is still happening and could maybe main), but despite yoel's camp saying he isn't healthy yet and isn't fighting, they still have his fight with costa listed

cyborg - nunes should be most likely but i don't think nunes actually wants it. prob cuz she knows she'll get steamrolled.

amanda actually really wants it and was the one that kept pushing for it, but that'll probably be on the last ppv of the year, nunes said she needs time to get used to training at that weight. cris wanted the fight to happen sooner and was/maybe still is considering taking another fight before it.

Cris said that even though the next season of tuf is 145lb women, they only took on girls who they feel would also be able to make 135. She isn't too happy in ufc and might leave when she finishes out her current contract if things don't change and they sign some real 45 contenders

sounds like lee will be on the card, potential replacement if khabib is too busy cajoling homeless people and can't fight.

Lee called out Iaquinta for 229 but Al said 230 is the soonest he'd fight him. Anthony Pettis is trying to find a fight for 229. Maybe do Lee-Pettis

Ferguson mentioned waiting on an opponent for the McG/Khabib card. Unclear who that'd be, maybe Pettis? Might just have him on call?

poirier vs ferguson as the next title eliminator makes the most sense

pettis should fight diaz and whoever wins should still be 2 big wins away from a title shot

I mean, I'd be happy with any combo of Poirier/Ferguson/Diaz fighting and the winner getting a title shot but Pettis should definitely be several fights away from a title shot. I guess if he beat Ferguson, I could see him getting an eliminator?

It's odd, because Poirier clearly wasn't going to accept anything but a big fight, Diaz wasn't either. Pettis is a star, who's coming off a win and they probably thought they could do something with. They may have had more leverage with Ferguson, I think, who's been off for a while and I think they sort of manipulated into being blamed for the Khabib fight falling through (I mean, obv in this case, it was 'his fault' but it really shouldn't have been used to hurt his stock, really). So, Pettis gets a big fight, Dustin and Nate get a big fight and Ferguson gets a keep busy fight that is still able to be the probable co-main for a giant show.

i reaaaallly hope max isn't killing himself to rush back in the cage. very worried about his health.

looking forward to tonight, top to bottom seems like a very fun card. rooting for gaethje, but vick is dangerous and it's hard for me to pick.

johnson over fili
hill over casey (hoping)
barbarena over ellenberger (sad pick)

Usually when I don't care too much about a card it ends up being pretty good.

Max has probably had 20 tests done to make sure he's okay. I still think it was from excess water over anything concussion like

Ferguson says he's training for 3 guys. I'm skeptical Con-Beebs ends up happening and the lead up is going to be such a weird circus

Saw that KO coming a minute before it happened. Vick kept backing up with his head straight up, hands down and Gaetje kept looping power rights, which he does in every fight. He called out Ferguson but Pettis seems more suitable to me. Both coming off one big win after a losing streak.

Before the fight, someone asked Justin how he feels about Vick calling him Homer Simpson and he replied by saying Homer's undefeated :lol:

Don't care for this at all, ST should get Till if he beats TWood. RL should be fighting someone out of the top 5 to rebuild, another loss may send him to retirement. Beating Robbie doesn't really do much for Thompson at this point, basically risking an injury to stay where he already is

I'm not as hyped about 228 as I was a month ago but still planning on watching.

Woodley inside distance
Valentina inside distance
Zabit by decision
Andrade I'm leaning inside distance but maybe decision

Seriously can't believe Till made weight. He looked like absolute shit but hey he was able to stand I guess.

dodson-rivera moved to main is a good move, should have been there in the first place

dodson will probably slightly get the better of him only to watch the judges give a sd to jimmie
