    Exciting title fight for the main and not much else to get excited for aside from that. Is this the new norm?

    Jones often doesn't get good cards.

    They are becoming more and more like boxing every year.

    Soon only the main events will be appealing....

    the card was 6/10 but now without chito vs rivera is now a 5.5/10.

    juan adams vs justin tafa in the main event is such an insult to the ones who pay.

    Such garbage.


    Jon Jones (c) vs. Dominick Reyes
    Valentina Shevchenko vs. Katlyn Chookagian
    Juan Adams vs. Justin Tafa
    Mirsad Bektić vs. Dan Ige
    Derrick Lewis vs. Ilir Latifi

    Prelims

    Marlon Vera vs. TBD
    Trevin Giles vs. Antonio Arroyo
    Alex Morono vs. TBD
    Lauren Murphy vs. Andrea Lee
    Miles Johns vs. Mario Bautista
    Journey Newson vs. Domingo Pilarte
    Andre Ewell vs. Jonathan Martinez



    I'm literally only interested in three fights: Jones, Shev, Lewis. And Shev is hit or miss with her performances.

    This card is so top heavy it keeps the Kool-Aid locked in his apartment.

    Probably because he's a big enough draw himself to pull 500K+ buys

    This...

    Fucking Juan Adams in the co-main is a joke (not a funny one). You get starched by Greg Hardy and then get a PPV main event? Someone please tell me that I’m missing something...

    I think it's a good card, two title fights.

    terrible matchmaking on paper, lewis vs augusto sakai, who is coming on a decent streak, was the fight to make, latifi can´t even take a punch from LHW, no way he is gonna have a career at HW.

    Jones is the only superstar champion in the org and they expect him to carry the card.
    But he is not headlining at all just 12 days leading to the fight. Maybe he should make another felony?

    The loss of the Jimmie Rivera fight will definitely impact the card strength

    It’s a bad card but Lewis vs Latino should be good for the lolz. Bektic Ige should be a good fight too. Vera is a must see fighter so I hope he can get an opponent. 6/10 card though. They’re taking the piss with expecting people to pay to watch Juan Adams though.

    ...which is probably higher than average, for modern UFC cards

    Buyers only care about the ME. Most of the ppl that care about the undercard are fucking streamers anyway.

    The people that buy this card will buy it for Jones, I won’t. E one of them because...fuck that cheating POS.
