    Is having Rashad, Rua, Lyoto, and Hendo making this card feel more awesome than it is ? None of these guys are going to see the belt again, but I am loving this card.

    I'll go with stacked. I still want to see the fighters you mentioned.

    Without the main this card is weak, but with it, this is a solid card

    Neither the Evans/Shogun or Hendo/Machida fights interest me.


    They're both insignificant to their respective divisions and it's sad to say that but true. Would've rather matched them against up and comers to see where they're at.


    Something like Machida vs Whittaker or Shogun vs Latifi IMO

    The card has two guys that clearly need to retire and one that probably should. It's a "stacked" card. Stacked because you know all the names but they shouldn't be fighting any more.

    Definitely nostalgia, but there's nothing wrong with that since there still good fights.

    Stoked to see Rashad again him vs Shogun was one I always wanted to see back in the day, plus Rashad will probably look better in this fight considering the ring rust is gone.

    Overrated card, Tecia vs. Rose is a really good fight & so is Khabib vs. Ferguson, not interested in seeing the legends circuit.

    I'd rather see contenders like Almeida vs Sterling, and Brian Ortega vs Amirkani. It pains me a little to say that because Machida has been my favorite for a long time.

    Very excited for the Main. Hoping for Khabib. Cant stand Fergie since TUF. I'm interested in the rest of the main card as well. I'll watch. They're not anywhere near relevant in their divisions but I'm a fan of all four legends and will always watch them compete, whether they should retire or not.

    Stacked.

    Holy crap Cezar Ferreira is still in the UFC? His poor poor brain cells.
