    Makes sense. UFC will try to un-stack 229 as much as possible since the headliner sells itself. They can maximize profit better by saving fights for cards surrounding 229 that will need stacking.

    Has Borg recovered from the life threatening eye injury yet?

    Makes sense. Putting Borg on the same card as Conor when Borg has that no-contact order against Conor did not make sense.

    Conor asked the UFC to remove Borg from the card because he knows the beating he would face if Borg confronted him about the bus incident.

    Can’t say I blame Conor.

    Joe looked completely shot against Pettis. Interested to see how he looks here keeping in mind that Borg is not a good striker

    joe b looked god awful against pettis, like half the fighter he was before the layoff.


    fuck it i'll go with borg, although borg is mostly a grappler and i'm not sure he can even get joe down, and joe might even be the better grappler so idk. just going off of how bad joe looked his last fight.
