Ha, he won't retire he's too young and has a whole business which would implode if he did ( the askren wrestling academy) Maia is one more fight then retiring so I see a clear path for funky Ben returning, 3 wins in a row and he has a title shot for sure

Got me excited this card, one of the best this year.

Shahbazyan, Walker Anderson, Gillespie Lee, Thompson Luque and obviously the co and main.

Gastelums weigh in was very sus and the fact they know it happened Eek

Will be setting the alarm for this one.

Off the top of my head I can’t think of a card I’ve been more excited for this year

Card of the year surely. Nervous that Till is going to get sparked again, surely can’t have fixed his defensive issues & Kelvin got too much power to not respect. Especially after leangate at weigh ins.

So excited for this card, prelims are stacked. Main card is banger after banger, except the HW fight in the middle because who cares.

Nate by sub and Walker by KO I reckon.

I agree Till will get sparked. I'll never understand people going up a weight class after they got knocked out in their last fight at a lighter weight. Silly moves

I’ve met till, he’s huge for 170. He’s a more natural middleweight

Overeem after getting knocked out in final seconds of round 3. Feel sorry for him never being the UFC HW Champion. Proper beast and always comes back for more.

Does anyone think cowboy gets a late stoppage in this?
Cowboy looks bigger and I don’t think Conor has the power to KO him at 170 (see Diaz fights) plus the xtra muscle on Conor will make him has more quickly.

The odds look good for a late Cowboy stoppage

Just seen that pic Overeem Eek

I have lost touch with UFC in recent years. Didn't think Overeem was ever quite so good once they made him stop eating horse meat Laughing out loud
I know they had to bring the sport into line if it was going to progress and grow. But I do miss those early days of with the likes of Reem on horse meat and t.r.t Bellfort.

Found a old box set in the loft not so long ago of a Pride tournament. That was brilliant

A lot of what I’ve read is people saying the longer the fight goes on, the more chance of Mcgregor gassing and Cerrone taking advantage like you’ve said. The other side is Cerrone will stand and fight because he likes it rather than taking him to the ground where he could easily wrap him up.

Will be a great fight I’m sure.

Watching Belfort run across the ring and destroy Wanderlei Silva was what got me in to watching it, was unreal!
