    I was looking forward to watching Algeo scrap again, his fight against Lamas was fun

    I really hope the UFC is offering covid vaccines to all the fighters. It's up to them of they take it but going forward with full crowds and stuff anyone who doesn't take it is probably a dumbass fighter.

    You're going to risk a fight and a pay check to sit out for covid and get the worker symptoms than getting the vaccine?

    Ufc better work with vegas or what we officials to make it offered to the fighters.

    One more time? Because before he was scheduled to fight Tukhugov and I think he would also lose that fight.

    I read it 'Ricardo Llamas' on first sight. Then I realized he retired already.

    Hope it's the first and last pull out from the event.
