NFT: UFC 251 - Fight Island

SimpleMan : 7/11/2020 4:53 pm
Huge UFC card tonight with 3 title fights. Anyone watching? Picks?

I would love to see Masvidal KO Usman, but he sure has an uphill battle with the short notice and huge weight cut.

Living in Hawaii, I really want Holloway to get his belt back. Such a good dude, always a great sport win or lose. I am curious what adjustments he will make from his last fight with Volkanovski.

Not a huge fan of Aldo jumping into the title shot at 135, I thought Aljamin Sterling deserved it a lot more. Yan is great but he has the personality of my front door so I don't really root for him. The 135 division is absolutely stacked right now.

Can do it. But no camp and cutting 22 lbs on short notice is tough. But crazy to have such a huge fight come together this quick. I ordered and am hosting a zoom deal for some friends.
Pumped for this one

I’m going Yan, Holloway, Jorge. I think Usman is the better fighter and had a full camp but Masvidal has an 07 Giants feel to him. Lot of momentum and seems like it’s his time
It annoys me that it’s clearly not right that

Holloway lost. Like anyone who watched the fight obvious.

That decision was a joke. Didn’t help that the main event was a complete snooze fest
