This card is a mess because of the visa issues that prevented a bunch of Brazilian fighters from coming over. The main card would have been solid if they didn't have to pull those fights. Still a really good main event though.

Machida/Romero has a good chance to be very uneventful. I like both guys but their styles don't mesh.

If Machida loses he definitely needs to retire. That Rockhold fight still has me salty.

He doesn't need to retire. He's still one of the top guys in the division.

Rockhold was just on point that night and fought exactly how he should have fought.

He aint getting any younger. Selfishly I want him to fight forever but I dont want him to ever be a gatekeeper either.

He's fine. Things change quickly, I'm sure most thought Dos Anjos or Werdum would be gatekeepers forever too. Weidman and Rockhold are just great fighters.

Phil Davis vs Machida replay?

Interested to see how Bosse looks. Not sure if I care about they rest.
Which Oliviera is this?

The one who just beat Noons less than a month ago. He looked good in that fight.

Nope. Romero is actually a decent striker but his top game sucks. Opposite of Phil. His output is just way too low.

Pretty much guaranteed to be a low offense tactical-kind of fight

one thing's for sure, Oliveira doesn't seem to have much top-end upside.

The moment i saw RDS' Stephane Patry on Bosse's corner, i thought to myself he probably wasn't well prepared for this fight. Why would you have a non-coach or a non-fighter on your corner

Carlos Jr. is massive for 185.

All Carlos Jr. in that one. Didn't even seem fair because of the size difference.

That's three straight losses for Gordon. I thought he might make some noise after TUF. He looked solid on the show and was training full time with Longo/Serra

Everybody from TUF 19 doing poorly in the UFC, except one man: Cathal Pendred. Let that sink in

Holy crap, you're right. He's 4-0.

His last fight was one of the worst I've ever seen though.

They're throwing bombs now.

Larkin looks much better at 170.
