    After a dud of a weekend for MMA entertainment will tonights card live up the the hype and reverse our bad luck of stanky cards? Even 234 was a big dud.

    This is a great free card tonight, but are we cursed?

    Should be ok.

    Cain never disappoints, even if Francis is sure to.

    I have always been a cain fan but I can see Ngannou knocking out cain in a minute and retiring him.

    Is it pretty much always appropriate to say "live up to the hype?" It isn't as if this was some massively hyped card.

    I’m not super excited but it should be a good card.

    The main event...

    That could be a dud or a barn burner. But I don’t expect it to go to the judges. But I didn’t expect Stipe and Ngannou to go the distance either. That fight had an awesome first round. Then complete dud for pretty much 20 mins.

    Mitrione is going to show up and kick Cain in the balls backstage, fuck the whole thing up.

    Going to be a stinker. Frank Ungamew only has to hit Cain once, maybe twice. Cain has to hit him dozens of times while also keeping him down for large portions of the fight. So either Cain goes lights out quickly or we see another 5 rounds of Francisco on his hands and knees. Either way, we lose. The only winners will be the meme kings of death. Trading on shitty fights and jokes that only they get.

    Depends on Cain. He might decide to start things slow against Ngannou since he figures he can wait for Ngannou to tire out like he did vs Stipe. Problem is that Ngannou probably has learnt his lesson and I do not expect him to go all out swinging again. There's also the question of Cain's fitness, videos suggest he might have tweaked his knee in the open workout and the fact he came to the weight in fully clothed hints of him hiding a knee brace. If that's the case he might really have no choice but to be defensive.

    Yeah I can't imagine Cain being afraid to engage for 25 minutes.
