    Maryna Moroz vs Danielle Taylor, an underrated classic.

    I know you're fucking around, but that might actually be the worst fight I've ever seen. I think Moroz landed something like 6% of her strikes, and she had a 14 inch reach advantage.

    On paper, yes.

    In reality, no. The early prelims saw the likes of two once great fighters reduced to highlight fodder in tragic and depressing fashion. Gomi and Sanchez just fell apart and neither fight was remotely good. Just sad.

    Then the normal prelims saw four consecutive decisions, with none of the fights being truly competitive. For as fun as it was to see Kelvin whoop on Hendricks for an entire fight, it was equally frustrating and sad to see Cat get beat on.

    So, yea.... but no.

    I honestly don't think I could name a single opening card fight. Can't even remember 206's.

    It is kinda his major thing. Portugizing the names and typing gureat instead of great. He really tries to be a special snowflake.
