    I could be wrong but I believe this will be the first card I get to watch since Stipe vs Ngannou

    Yea I hardly catch anything live any more. Work 6 days & Sunday is my only day off, so that’s usually the only night I can really go out. This card is pretty stacked though, still doubt I catch it live.

    I’m usually off on Saturday nights but my job has a fetish of scheduling me to work 6 AM on Sunday mornings, so I’m usually passing out around the time the main card is starting

    Romero missed weight by f---in .2 pounds, d---. Definitely a non-title fight if the fight's even still on, last I heard they aren't sure yet.

    If Rashad loses for the fifth time in a row I'm ending my life. Not very hopeful at all though. I think there's a decent chance he gets finished.

    On one hand I'm annoyed they're giving him a killer without much of a name... On the other I understand it's the UFC and Rashad probably just doesn't belong there anymore.

    Who you guys got out of RDA/Colby?

    Rashad shouldn't be fighting any more. I don't need to be seeing him lose to guys like Dan Kelly, Sam Alvey and Anthony Smith. Should have called it after Glover. He was never the same after the Jones fight.

    Anyways I'm hoping RDA beats Colby, dude is an insufferable c---- in both personality and fighting style.

    lol at the UFC doing DJ/Cejudo 2 on the same card as Dillashaw/Garbrandt 2.

    insufferable c---- :')

    I don't mind him. I find him kinda funny but it's half laughing with and half laughing at.

    I think Colby will win. If Khabib can ragdoll RDA... I don't see how Colby can't. RDA has evolved but I don't think it'll be enough. Could obviously go either way tho.

    Yeah, you're right about Rashad but I understand why he kept going. It always feels like he's on the cusp of getting it back mentally but he just doesn't. Hasn't taken too much damage either. But yeah, there's no point in continuing. He's a smart/charismatic guy... He can use that in broadcasting or be successful elsewhere I'm sure.

    The commission apparently only gave him 1 extra hour to lose the .2. The allotment is 2 hours. He got f----- really.

    Saw the video of Evans getting KO'd. Hopefully he calls it a career after that. Regardless, I definitely think if we see him fight again it won't be in the UFC.

    First round of Coulter/de la Rocha was fun but then it quickly turned into a typical heavyweight fight where they go balls to the walls in the first round lol

    Hard to tell. You would think after that embarrassing first loss he would be extra motivated to win but you never know. I think if he loses this fight it will be his last. Dana only brought Punk in to draw wrestling fans and stick it to Vince.

    It’s like 50/50 to me but I guess I’ll say Punk wins. He seems confident and has worked hard.

    Hoping he gets the W for sure. If he loses though I bet someone mentions it on raw lol.

    This next fight is very interesting. I can genuinely see Blaydes beating Overeem now that I'm actually thinking about it. Which just seems weird. Overeem is looking as good as he's ever looked physically in recent times tho

    Can one of you mention me when the Punk fight is about to start? I’m finishing watching Dominion from last night and don’t think I’m going to be able to finish it before Punk’s fight starts lol
