    Is the main event going to hold up come December? Max has been having some problems lately making his fights. If this fight gets pulled itll be a very weak PPV with Shev vs Joanna as a headline. Not a bad headline but the rest of the card is meh.

    Ortega v Max is the equivalent of Khabib v Tony but at FW. The winner of this is really the best 145er on the planet.

    Another thing.. surely Anders kills Theodorou?

    I think a healthy max destroys t-City but there might be no such thing as a healthy max anymore

    GOAT boring fighter. Guy throws infinite kicks though lol.. just no power. Santos is on this card too, always a treat to watch.

    I’d pay $65 for the Shevchenko fight alone. Watching her fight is a treat, let alone against Joanna.

    As much as I like Manuwa, I think he gets KO’d.

    Even if it loses the main event somehow, which I don't think will be an issue, Shevchenko vs JJ is a great marquis fight as well.

    Max will kicks Ortega's ass easily, be sure about that.

    we talking Elias?

    everything the guy throws makes him look like he’s fighting underwater


    plus he telegraphs everything


    slowest striking since Pendred

    Agreed but I find the rest of the card a little weak of that ends up happening. I wonder if anymore fights get added to 231, my guess is no. Maybe some prelims

    Exactly hahah, weird fighter. This will be a huge test for him and unless he wins a decision against a gassed Anders than he is in big trouble.

    Ortega has already said the Ufc has told him they have a back up title fight lined up in case Max pulls out.

    So even if Max pulls out we will get something like

    Ortega vs Aldo, Mendes, Moicano 2 or on

    I was wondering about this, thats good to hear. So do they have another FW bout on the card? Ill have to look. Aldo would be amazing on this card too.
