Cracking card this weekend. Who you all got?

Hoping Chito gets the win, i'm a big fan. He is notoriously a slow starter which is my worry. He does have a hell of a chin and somehow never seems to look like he's taken much damage no matter how many shots he takes.

I really like Sugas fight style and his fights are usually entertaining but can't stand his persona anymore he seems to have sold out to appeal to young fans.

Lastly I hope Poirier gets the win but if it is a stand up brawl can see him getting KOd early

I am going, Yan, Burns, MVP, Porier and Suga.

Blaydes on the undercard also. All look like they could be bangers.

Too much of a try hard. Doesn’t have the charisma of back it up.

Yeah very true, he has the ability to be a star but like you say, no charisma

People see through all that carry on. He’s a good fighter, doesn’t need to it all.

That Benoit looks like an animal. The fight will be a bloodbath.

Didnt watch all of last night, just the last two fights. Dustin looked in trouble but great determination from him to stave off the constant onslaught from Benoit.

also o’malley was outstanding in offence against chito, how he didnt get knocked out from that knee, chito’s chin was unreal.

want to watch the burns fight, but gutted for him as he is one of the soundest guys on the roster. Also i hear mvp was good so meed to watch that back.

How that knee didn’t take out Vera is mad. Sean pieced him up all fight. Vera really should’ve made it ugly early on. Left it too late and didn’t really stand a chance. Great performance by Sean.

MVP is going to be great to watch. When he comes up against a wrestler is when he will be really tested.

Saint-Dennis is a pit bull. The pressure he keeps on is nuts. Cracked me up that Dustin went straight for the guillotine after being told not too.

Yep dustin is crazy. Watched his post match interview and his coaches and other fighters told him not to jump the guillotine all week but i think he tried it 3-4 times in his fight lol. This is probably why he will never be a champion. He is one of the best to do it and is an amazing all rounded fighter, with incredible durability, but he lacks complete discipline you need to be the greatest.
