    I actually think Max vs Ortega for the FW Title will be. I predict Holloway will be Conor's next opponent after they both win their next fights (both against undefeated grapplers, coincidentially enough.)

    This as the co-main event makes me think that the PPV portion won't be incredibly deep. Not that it needs it PPV buys-wise considering it's a Conor card. I'm interested to see how the rest of the card fills out.

    I'll take Volkov by decision.

    Ditto I was thinking the same thing. Seems the UFC is going all in on the main event. Would be a real shame if it fell apart last minute. Another Wonderboy vs Hendricks situation.

    wtf, this is the co-main? I thought you would want to promote one of your champs in this slot

    The Francis fight was supposed to be a possible title eliminator for Black Beast but it was a shit show.

    They're not wasting a title fight

    Conor v Kebab doesn't need any help selling

    I'm sure Lewis has been rigorously rehabbing and his back injury won't flare up again like it has 3 of the last 4 fights.

    I love the Beast, but does he even train?

    Can't blame them, Conor will pull a million buys on his own and he rarely pulls out of fights. Hasn't necessarily been the norm though. Conor cards have been stacked before but I would get it if they decided to go the "boxing format" for this sort of card.

    True the UFC 202 main card to support Conor/Diaz 2 was wack

    Volkov's fight to lose

    Rooting for the BB though. Hope his back treatment was succesful.

    Damn good fight. I'll take Black Beast via KO.

    I reserve the right to change this pick if his back issues aren't sorted out.
