    Via O'Malley himself on the Helwani show. Not mad at the matchup either. O'Malley has that "it" factor but still has a long way to go. This is a good fight to showcase his talents. If he wins, then maybe he'll be considered for a lower end top 15 guy.

    O'Malley says this fight will kick off the PPV Main Card even though he preferred to be the "Prelim Main Event" for UFC 229 to get more eyes on his fight.

    O'Malley should get a long slow build. Kids got the talent and charisma to be a megastar but he's not there yet.

    Agreed here. I have no problem with this fight. I didn't like the Perez matchup. Perez is no world beater but I still felt that was too much too soon.

    I love sherdog. Highly touted prospect faces another top prospect or even a tough durable vet, omg the Ufc has no fucking clue how to build prospects.

    Highly touted young prospect gets a lower level unhyped opponent omg why are they babying this kid and giving him preferential treatment.

    I thought he was fighting perez , Its fine to build him with giving him some cans but just dont make him the MVP of UFC

    Jose is on a 4-fight win streak in the UFC, last beating Ishihara. This is a solid match-up. Let's not act like Sugar is ready for the Marlon Moraes' of the world.

    Pretty sure Lewis X Volkov was announced as the co-main

    Card to build him up to get casual... opponent to look impressive against. Smart move.

    It sure was. And I understand it. The undercard doesn't have to be legendary for this one to sell over a million.

    As long as they add

    Lee or Ferguson vs Pettis and I'm happy. I'd be very happy if we get Lee vs Pettis, Ferguson vs Hooker/Iaquinta

    It's smart
    Conor X Khabib sells by itself
    Then stack the next card so you possibly have 2 cards that do over 1M buys
