Keith and Ben preview UFC Fight Night 237, also known as UFC Mexico, with detailed predictions and picks for all 13 fights. While the guys stuck more or less to business for most of the show this week, there were a few forays into side topics, including the unluckiest fighters in the modern UFC, Keith's bid to become an honorary Texan, and, of course, Bo Nickal.

Haha is that the mansion that I got lost in last time? :D David you just have too many rooms, theres like 75 rooms in the place. You need to start painting some arrows on the wall to show what way to go lol, so easy to get lost in all your mansions because of the sheer size of them.

Not gonna lie I love having rich friends. Just by knowing you I went from this.............

It feels like forever since we saw Ortega fight, I'm not sure what to expect really. You see Ortega fight and then you don't see him again for years. I think he will be too rusty. Yair will be too sharp and fast for him I reckon.

Thanks. See you there.

Glad Ortega is returning. Always enjoy watching him fight. He never gives up. Remember in that fight against Volkanovski he nearly got a submission and then stuck it out while getting pieced up. When he's not throwing up cool sub attempts he often takes a lot of punishment. I agree Yair may be too much for him. Hoping they both perform well.
 


Brandon Moreno has received a spot in his own ESPN commercial.


The former flyweight champion will make his “This is SportsCenter” commercial debut on all ESPN platforms ahead of his bout against Brandon Royval in the UFC Fight Night 237 headliner this Saturday.

The humorous spot is entitled “Elevator” and depicts Moreno and his team arriving at their desired floor as they would for a fight night walkout. Meanwhile, SportsCenter anchor Nicole Briscoe looks on indifferently as the fighter exits and the elevator doors close.

The commercial features both English and Spanish-language versions. In the Spanish version, SportsCenter anchor Jorge Eduardo Sanchez and ESPN Deportes commentator Mauricio Pedroza struggle to exit the elevator as Moreno bounces around and his coach barks out instructions.



“Early mornings are part of the job here at ESPN. Whether it’s your team hyping you up or a cup of coffee, we all have to find a way to bring the energy,” said Seth Ader, vice president of brand marketing at ESPN, in a release. “But more importantly, this spot is an example of how ‘This is SportsCenter’ serves as an amazing platform to show the diversity of athletes and backgrounds in the sports universe.”

Moreno is the first athlete to appear in a “This is SportsCenter” spot in 2024 after the segment made its return last year. “The Assassin Baby” became the UFC’s first Mexican-born champion when he submitted Deiveson Figueiredo to capture the flyweight crown at UFC 263 in June 2021. Moreno has enjoyed two separate reigns as 125-pound title holder in the Las Vegas-based promotion but relinquished the strap to Alexandre Pantoja in a split-decision defeat at UFC 290 this past July.

UFC Fight Night 237 takes place at Mexico City Arena in Mexico City. The main card airs on ESPN+ at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, while prelims also stream on ESPN+ beginning at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
