    ________________________________________________________

    With the addition of Glover vs. Manuwa as the confirmed Main Event for UFC Sao Paulo, it seems the event is complete. Please keep in mind that the bout order for the card has not yet been determined and the one above is purely for the sake of the thread. With that being said, what do you guys think of the card? It isn't bad for a Fight Night, it's got some solid matchups. I would have liked a better Main Event for the card but this one won't get any complaints from me. I do think Lil Nog should not be fighting anymore in 2018 though and Leites vs. Lombard will also probably be pretty depressing. Weird to see Barao go from a Champion to fighting new comers.
    I rate the card a 7.5/10. What do you guys think?

    solid free card tbh.

    few good "name", few fun fights.

    7,5/10 is about right

    Is this some kind of joke? Lil Nog is actually fighting in 2018? At a UFC event?

    It's okay....

    Glover/Manuwa is a kinda weak main event. Both guys are old and on losing streaks and at the end of their careers, this fight doesn't mean much. Nothing to get too hyped for.

    I always love watching Cowboy Oliveira. But there's some of the most boring fighters on the roster on that card.... Neil Magny, Elias Theodorou, Sam Alvey.

    5/10

    Sad to see the once great Renan Barao on the prelims. At one point, people here are putting him top 5 on the P4P list

    I rate the card 3/10. It's a very typical FS1 Brazil card. I've seen so many lineups like this.

    It's free, so I like it. If Vieira wins, that'll be five in a row for her, so it's shocking how they buried her on the prelims.

    Nah, the lineup isn't official. It's just my best guess for what it's going to look like.

    Thats a decent free card. Both Alex Oliveira and Antonio Carlos Jr.are fighters that probably won't ever fight for a title but are fun to watch.

    Several nice matchups and fairly deep card, especially for an international FN card.

    That being said, the main event is fairly ho-hum, but I get the fact that they still have to build an entire PPV event two weeks later (UFC 229).

    There are some names on there, but the match ups are meh. EZDS x Muhammed is the fight to watch for me. Magny x Cowboy should be fun too.

    For a Fight Night it's a very good card and solid throughout.

    And against a heavy hitter. Not saying he can't win but if he loses he's likely going unconscious
