    • Max Holloway (c)(19-3) vs. Brian Ortega (14-0, 1NC)**
    • Francis Ngannou (11-2) vs. Derrick Lewis (19-5, 1NC)
    • Gokhan Saki (1-1) vs. Khalil Rountree Jr. (6-2, 1NC)
    • Uriah Hall (13-8) vs. Paulo Costa (11-0)
    • Raphael Assuncao (26-5) vs. Rob Font (15-3)
    • Yancy Medeiros (15-5, 1NC) vs. Mike Perry (11-3)
    • Michael Chiesa (14-3) vs. Anthony Pettis (20-7)
    • Max Griffin (14-4) vs. Curtis Millender (15-3)
    • Jamie Moyle (4-2) vs. Emily Whitmire (2-2)
    • Gilbert Burns (14-2) vs. Dan Hooker (16-7)
    • Lando Vannata (9-2-1) vs. Drakkar Klose (8-1-1)
    I personally cant wait to see Saki in octagon again. I think they had to give him one of the ranked fighter like Oezdemir. You cant keep the guy years to reach to belt he is already a kickboxing legend .

    Lando, Costa, Lewis, Holloway, Stipe.

    Hope the Saki fight is gonna be a good one but I think he will gas very quickly again

    Ngannou vs Lewis. You know you are in for an exciting fight when one of the fighters is nicknamed "Black Beast"...and the other one is Ngannou. ;D

    Ortega wrapping Holloway up in a guillotene is going to be scream-at-the-screen level

    Can't decide between the main and co-main.

    War Stipe!

    War Max!

    • 1. Lando Vannata (9-2-1) vs. Drakkar Klose (8-1-1)
    • 2. Yancy Medeiros (15-5, 1NC) vs. Mike Perry (11-3)
    • 3. Uriah Hall (13-8) vs. Paulo Costa (11-0)
    • 4. Francis Ngannou (11-2) vs. Derrick Lewis (19-5, 1NC)
    • 5. Stipe Miocic (c)(18-2) vs. Daniel Cormier (20-1, 1NC)*

    My TOP 5 fights from most to least exciting. Lando's hype is still real to me. PMP is simply too entertaining, especially with a dance partner like Yancy. Paulo Costa got me intrigued after the Rocky meat locker scene he performed on Hendricks. Francis vs Black Beast is the perfect black-on-black violence possible right now (with Rumble retired). And, of course, the main event, but I'm not that hyped for it. It should be good, I know it will be, but the other fights mentioned have me more excited.

    Well LWH and HW are my favorite divisions. Yea, yea whatever...

    So without a doubt it is DC and Stipe.

    However, I am pretty psyched for the entire Main Card and most of the Prelims.

    Gotta be Stipe-DC. It has potential to be a little low in entertainment value (relative to some of the other fights) but it's arguably the greatest HW and LHW in UFC history fighting each other. Arguable the best match-up in UFC history.

    Max-Ortega is off the hook too though. It's just a great, great fucking card.

    Main and Co main. Two of my favorite fighters.
    The entire fight cards exciting - WMMA. On paper this is the best card in forever based on match ups and importance of the fights. Only fight I can see being somewhat boring is Hooker x Burns, once Burns starts cage humping after Hooker puts some elbows on his nose. And I'm still looking forward to that fight! This card is dope top to bottom.
