I never wanted to be in a position to rely on Jessica Eye to make a fight exciting but hoo boy that fight is going to stink if she can't force Valentina to do something.

Great card. Really looking forward to this one. Tuivasa vs Ivanov is a fat boy battle the likes of which I wish to watch.

Yan is probably going to dead Rivera really badly. Jimmie has always been kinda chinny and looked horribly gunshy against Aljo.

It is also my hopes that Munhoz can pull a fun fight out of Aljo and make him work.

The cringe on Henry’s new character is something else.

I admire Cejudo trying to draw more than flies for one of the lighter weight divisions but I hope Moraes beats his ass.

the funniest part about that to me was Moraes's reaction, like "WTF is up with this guy".

Henry looking all serious while he did that made it hilarious too. I would pick Moraes comfortably but I'm not sure about his defensive wrestling. Henry has always had issues hitting takedowns in MMA though. Moraes's wrestling defense hasn't really had the chance to be tested much. I'll still lean towards the bigger guy who has knocked out dudes that are better strikers than Cejudo.


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

Also, Cowboy/Tony is the people's main event they say, and I'm inclined to agree. Should be 5 rounds. Cowboy never wins big fights, so I'd normally pick against him but TOny's absence as well as Cowboy's supposed newfound maturity make me feel like maybe he can pull it out. But Tony's striking defence is really underrated and he has the wrestling and grappling to keep up with Cowboy so I could see him wearing him down. Definitely fight of the night for me.

I think Shevchenko should win easily, and the oddsmakers agree.

Petr Yan has a chance to really cement his hype here and there are a lot of good fights on the undercard too. Really looking forward to this card.

Suarez has been pegged from the start of TUF as the next champ and I hope she delivers. Nina seems like a great person and her comeback story would be incredible because years ago she was never somebody that people would have looked at as the next title challenger but I think Tatiana is going to work her.

Calderwood/Chookagian being the curtain jerker is kinda weird as far as card placement goes, especially considering if JoJo wins she could be the next title challenger at 125.

I have a personal investment in this fight and I can’t for the life of me understand why it’s the first fight in fight pass. Chookagian trains at my old gym and is engaged to my old wrestling coach, but I love JoJo so much. Can’t wait.

Great fight, but Aljo was just too skilled at using his length.  Munhoz barely moved his head the entire fight and I thought his movements were fairly predictable.  Still, I felt the danger was there for him to steal a win up until the final bell.

That was one of the craziest knockouts ever. Glad Jessica is all right cause damn.

Then Valentina dancing to Daft Punk afterwards was hilarious and awesome.

He’s an Olympic Gold medalist (youngest in US history) and a two division champ that beat the crap out of his last two opponents after beating the pound for pound king.

Great fights overall tonight.

Didn’t pick Henry to win tonight. He’s showing new shit all the time. Looked amazing tonight. This probably kills 125 for good.

He has to get that Joe B loss back before making any claim to anything.

I will also say that the callout was absolutely embarrassing and I like the guy. Three guys coming off losses or who barely fight. Ducking contenders is what that sounded like to me.

This card had the rarity of having a bunch of decisions that were awesome fights to watch which helped move things along.

- Kattar's performance is going to get lost in the shuffle of things but he deserves a big step up next. His boxing looked miles above Lamas and it showed. I'd be totally ok with him fighting Zabit, Ortega or Stephens next.
- I think the "Next Generation of HW" talk around Tuivasa flamed out big time on Saturday. He barely edged past Arlovski a year ago then got aired out by JDS and can't move past a gatekeeper of the division. Then again, it's HW so all he needs is a two or three fight win streak and he's probably challenging for the belt.
- If Aljo isn't fighting for the BW belt next (which he should) then I think Petr Yan is a really tough out for him and he probably doesn't want that fight. No Mercy is exceptionally good at reading guys and their tells and Munhoz had some pretty good success at that during their fight. Aljo would probably lean on his grappling pretty hard if the fight happened.
- Cowboy was on his way to being stopped in the third round but Tony fucked up big time by saying they could run it back because he's given Dana a window to deny him a title shot.
- Valentina needed a performance like that and she's hanging onto the belt for a very long time unless Nunes can make 125 and not kill herself.
- Cejudo's gimmick is tiresome but man that dude can fight. Loses points for calling out dudes who are semi-retired, all but retired and have been KO'd three fights in a row though. Like come on dude.
