Initial thoughts: the 2016 version of this card was infinitely better and stronger from not only a name but matchup perspective. All of the pressure is on GSP to draw like he use to.

This isn't doing well in terms of tickets. But based on the hype I see around casuals in my own life, I think this will pop a decent buyrate. GSP still seems to be a relevant name in Canada, even four years later.

Joanna is catching a lot of heat for bringing up Rose's family history and mental illness. I've thought her personality was pretty manufactured for a while and that we saw a glimpse of the real her on TUF which was pretty much a cunt. I think Rose is going to get killed but I'm rooting for the upset here.

OSP kinda sucks imo. 205 is a joke, though.

OSP given favorable matchups can be okay but I think UFC is looking at this fight and getting flashbacks to how bad he look getting outgrappled by Bader and seeing the chance that Anderson can repeat the same gameplan.

Feels like OSP is getting a wrestling push thru the Von Flue Choke so I'm gonna roll with that being the way the fight is finished.

I’ll be at the weigh ins. I hope I can get a cool interaction with someone like I did with Karolina (preferably another hot polish chick).

The case for Hendricks being on roids gets stronger as each fight goes by.

Sometimes I forget that Wonderboy/Masvidal is happening on this card and I get hyped. Then I remember that Wonderboy got boned against Woodley in the rematch and I get sad.

Neither do I but I'm actually tempted to put 20 on James Vick. Seeing the line and how much bigger he is with the way he fights... I'm really liking those odds.

Duffy's only UFC loss was to Poirier and that wasn't really a blowout. Don't really know what Vick is going to bring to the table that he hasn't seen before and Vick has been tagged clean in quite a few fights. I think El Duffo knocks him out.

Safe to say if Bisping was fighting anyone besides GSP, then Cody v. TJ is the headliner?

JJ did seem an extra level of ****y going into this fight, but I honestly felt it was just part of her hyping the fight. 

JJ always starts slow and invites her opponent in during fights. It finally cost her.

Rose just shook up the entire division.  It's now wide open.

JJ has been in some wars, and has experienced a lot of dominant performances. Gotta wonder where she will be mentally after this fight.  She tapped to strikes. Wow.
