    this is clearly the worst MSG card we've ever been apart of

    Daniel Cormier (c) vs. Derrick Lewis
    Ronaldo Souza vs. Chris Weidman
    David Branch vs. Jared Cannonier
    Karl Roberson vs. Jack Marshman
    Derek Brunson vs. Israel Adesanya

    but there still should be a press conference to at least make it feel like there's a ufc event in madison square garden

    i think they're overestimating the star power of Lewis

    he has a bunch of younger meme fans who illegally stream. this will do 200K buys if they're lucky.

    DC is doing the promotion no good by bring up Lewis's rough background and then saying "it won't be enough inside that cage" like okay, we already know Lewis is still banged up from 229 and here we have DC downplaying him again. Why should we even buy the PPV if "it wont be enough inside that cage"? The best fight on this card is Brunson vs Israel

    how we went from ufc 205 and ufc 217 to this is kind of upsetting

    What DC supposed to say?

    "His tough backround scares the shit out of me. Im gonna get whooped in there."

    Of course there will be. How do you expect this to sell without one

    should have used it as a reason to watch the fight instead of saying Derrick's greatest strength won't even impact the fight at all

    how wouldn't DC be confident though? its something we already knew before that interview

    without DC, this fight would have never happened. if its on short notice obviously hes confident

    lewis just got done taking an ass whooping for 14 minutes and his eyes are all still busted up, id be more willing to buy if LEWIS was confident because theres no question that DC is

    he already confirmed he was confident when he say he denied the stipe rematch because he knew stipe was a bigger threat

    I think hes being honest is all.

    Ive said it in one other thread and il say it again here. All DC has to do is out walk Lewis for 1 rnd....

    DC wins by ability to walk further. He knows this.

    The problem is everyone else also knows this....

    This isn't that bad of a card by any means.

    Hopefully Black Beast will be there. Gotta be tough for him to find time. He’s always taking a shit or having sex. That’s all he does

    Its a good card but just not up to par to the other MSG events but its a good card and they had to scramble. Dont forget on the prelims there are some bangers in there.

    Knight
    Burgos
    Vannata
    Arce

    I think it will be a great night of fights and dont really care how much it does, Cormier is not a strong draw and Lewis is new to most fans so probably not gonna break the 3 mil.

    Which means its likely to be a card full of bad ass KO's and subs. How many times have we said the card on paper looks like ass but turns out to be better than any card with huge names on it. Id rather see awesome fights than have two big names move around in a circle for example... like Lewis and Ngannou for 3 rounds

    dont get me wrong here the card isn't on the level of 221, 224, or 228 there are still good fights but compared to 205 and 217 its way lower
