    Main card (PPV - 10:00 pm ET/7:00 pm PT) (1*-5* ratings scale)
    205lbs - Jon Jones (25-1, 1NC) vs. Dominick Reyes (12-0) - 4*
    125lbs - Valentina Shevchenko (18-3) vs. Katlyn Chookagian (13-2) - 2*
    265lbs - Juan Adams (5-2) vs. Justin Tafa (3-1) - 1*
    145lbs - Mirsad Bektić (13-2) vs. Dan Ige (12-2) - 2*
    265lbs - Derrick Lewis (22-7, 1NC) vs. Ilir Latifi (14-7, 1NC) - 1*

    How much do they want us to pay for this lol?

    Pretty shitty card for sure.

    It's a good thing I am thirsty for some MMA and am looking forward to it anyways

    Yup

    248 looks really good though, so there is some hope on the horizon

    Yeah doesn't look great, but I still can't wait for it to kick off just purely on obsession I have towards fighting.

    I don't get it to be honest.........10-15 years ago they had 1/10th of the roster but could generally stack up five marquee matchups for the majority of PPVs.

    And now they want more money? Fuck outta here.

    The black beast fight will be fun. There’s always an intrigue with Jones fights. Rest of card is shit

    Same price as always, it's good when they stack a card and absolutely horrendous when they don't. 2 fight losing streak Latifi vs 1-2 in his last 3 Lewis (the win was a SD). Bektic coming off a ko loss, 5-2 Adams coming off 2 straight losses vs 3-1 Tafa coming off a loss... Then we have Chookagian who has went the distance 12x in 15 fights and Valentina who is obviously good but can be very boring. Take away Jones vs Reyes and this card would be bad even for a fight night.

    Why are some Fight Night cards better than the PPV cards?

    Black Beast needs to deliver a pant shitting KO, everyone might be asleep before the main event

    Valentina vs Chookagian might be even more boring than that last Holly Holm fight.

    They need to hire me as business model ( like a radio model, no face for camera)

    Ala Cart PPV style.
    $10 main event
    $5 individual fight

    Pay only for what you want to see. I'd spend $15 for Beast and Jones fight, that's more than the $0 they get instead
    Bonus: They get to see the huge profit deficit WMMA has caused

    Yeah I've been saying this for a few weeks now, what a terrible card, I have zero interest in watching Juicy Jones fight (it's a fucking joke) and who the fuck is Shevchenko fighting? Juan Adams vs Justin Tafa on a fucking PPV card? What is this fucking Bellator?

    Bektic vs Ige a 2? Come on, it's better than that.

    Jones vs Reyes is a solid 4.5/5.
    Shev vs Chook, 3/5, just because we are arguably witnessing a WMMA goat in Shevchenko. Hoping for a stoppage.
    Whoda vs Fookis, 1/5, wtf is this fight doing on the PPV.
    Bektic vs Dan Ige, 3/5, two FW prospects. This is a very important fight for both fighters. I expect a good fight

    Lewis vs Illir, 3/5, Derrick always seems to bring some entertainment to every fight, even if it only comes in 10-20sec sprints. I really hope Illir doesn’t lay and pray for 3 rounds.

    All in all, it’s not a terrible PPV main event, I’ve seen worse. The undercard is absolute trash though.
