Dern vs Albu folks. Do. It.
Wait, Alex Chambers is still in the UFC?
She just came back after a lengthy layoff and lost to a debutant who belongs at 125.
Alex looks like she doesn't even diet or dehydrate to compete at 115.
^ I like this fight. Pennington deserves it and they're in the same division. If Nunes has an amazing performance especially a strong finish it could create more hype for a Nunes showdown with Cyborg. Cyborg can wait, she's fought twice recently and I think she's adopting a niece (something like that) and probably needs time to help her get situated.
Amanda by whatever she wants
WON reports, based on very prelim number, #UFC222 did between 210k and 260k buys. #UFC
Not bad, especially considering the opponent
If Nunes wins and fights Cyborg next, Reneau vs. Vieira for a titleshot is the fight to make, in my opinion it should be 5 rounds, a headliner for a UFN.
All nº 1 contender fights should be 5 rounds.
With only 3 weeks of promotion, Cyborg proving herself a draw once again.
I would prefer Vieira vs De Randamie, just because I think Vieira beats them both and I don’t want Reneau to be derailed yet.
Yeah, amazing "save" by Cyborg.
200k+ is a great number for a event with only 3 weeks of specific promotion
Romero vs. Whittaker did about 130k for example, UFC 218 was much more stacked and did just 230k, 215 did 200k
Yeah no doubt in my mind Cyborg is currently one of the bigger draws in the ufc. People have to realize it’s a sliding scale. No ones going to be doing Ronda, Conor, Brock or GSP numbers until someone just truly catches and resonates and becomes a huge star. Promotion is important but you can’t fully predict who will take off.
But Cyborg is getting solid numbers. I think it’s pretty clear people tune in to see her.

Cyborg can wait for the Nunes-Pennington fight to be over with. Fought a lot in the past six months so needs the break.
I wouldn't count Pennington out - thought she beat Holly.
She’s tough as hell. Just a great fight mentality. If Nunes goes blitz in the early going, we will see what happens but if she fights at that very measured pace to conserve energy for a five rounder, Rocky can outwork her in my opinion.
Lots of ppl still don't understand Nunes' style. She is not a brawler who decides to go blitz whenever she likes after she moved to ATT. Now she is a very patient striker who waits for openning to launch powerful strikes, against Mcmann she backpedaled most of round 1 before Mcmann gave her a wide openning.
Easy fight for Lipski. Aga has little chance in a 5 round fight, her conditioning is awful and Lipski has ground skills to survive Aga's early takedowns.
BW looks bad recently because UFC fucked up matchmaking in BW last year. The biggest mistake is GDR vs Holm at 145. This fight cost two top BW contenders while there was no clear contender after Shev.
I think BW is still on par with SW in term of talents. SW has lots of fighters, so matchmaking is easy to build up contenders.
FLW is far behind BW and SW in term of talents. Maia had trouble with Roxy, Kuma became a punching bag after 2 rounds, who knows if KGB can make weight without help from drug.
