    genuinely can't recall worse match making off the top of my head. Cormier has a few fights left and this is a massive waste. Nobody is excited for this match up. 0/10 UFC, thanks.

    Eubanks vs Valentina would’ve been a worse matchup



    also, I’m excited for this bout

    not saying it’s not a head-scratcher of a concept, but

    Imagine someone lacking in skill as much as Black Beast being the HW champ of the world.

    He'd literally be the worst HW champ in the history of the UFC, even worse than any SEG era HW champ.

    It's pointless. I hope they're paying Derrick well. The guy appears to need both counselling and a weight watchers membership. I don't buy that his back is the real source of his problems. Something seems off mentally with him. A waste of good potential at this point.

    Lewis is the worst #1 contender we have had in ALONG time, by worst i mean he lacks the most skills but who knows he has heart and is funny... just shows how weak heavyweight is.

    I know. He should be throwing shit through bus windows and trying to kill people in the crowd after fights. This comedy routine and instagram page is seriously messed up.

    He'd have beaten Maurice Smith so no.
    DC vs Lewis is bad but it's in a different league to Smith vs Tank.

    People have conveniently short memories.

    He is trending on twitter and Instagram. His PPV will do 1 million buys.

    And yet, he’s the legit #1 contender.

    So if we go back a year or two in your history, will we ever find a post complaining about the champ not fighting the #1 contender?!? Hmmm.

    TBF the guys deserves it. He is ranked number 2, has the most knockouts in the division, he just beat a top 5 guy, let him have his shot.

    A HW title fight where even the contender is not that interested.

    there is no shot of this happening. You know the saying of anything can happen, it doesn't apply to this fight at all..

    I wonder if they put Lewis in the top 20 p4p list to hype the fight.

    You can hate on black beast. But he gets the win.

    Totally agree.

    If DC doesn't win this the hw landscape will get really weird.

    He beat Volkov... He got this opportunity fair and square

    Aside from Blaydes, there's no one else really worthy of the shot atm unless you want to give Stipe the rematch

    Saving a card.

    Lewis Just solidified himself as number 1 contender and popularity is surging beyond anyone else.

    Makes sense to me from UFC standpoint. Blaydes will eventually be champ, calm down everyone.

    Actually, imagine being in a weight class where one slip up costs you an entire fight. I don't know why people are so stupid, it's a high risk division, much more than any other division in fighting.
