    Outside of the main event, the only other fight I wanna see is Michelle Waterson vs. Felice Herrig. The rest of them....... who? Absolute nobodies.

    Khabib X Conor sells the card by itself
    Go light on 229 undercard and stack 230...Makes senses

    Main could look like...

    Khabib X Conor
    Lewis X Volkov
    Lee X Pettis
    OSP X Reyes
    O'Malley X Quiznos

    I've seen worse main cards

    Reyes is most probably a future champion, just about all first rd finishes, check him out.

    Well, I see he's 9-0 and I always enjoy anyone who's undefeated so I'll check him out.

    But as far as name value goes, this card is as bad as a typical boxing card.

    Khabib vs. Conor does 1 mil at least. Lewis vs. Volkov and Reyes vs. OSP are both main card worthy. They usually have a women's fight as an opener so Waterson vs. Herrig makes sense. Add one more big fight like the rumored Lee vs. Pettis and that's a good main card.

    Khabib Nurmagomedov (c) vs. Conor McGregor: GOD TIER FIGHT
    Ryan LaFlare vs. Tony Martin: Who vs. Who?
    Lina Länsberg vs. Yana Kunitskaya: Who vs. Why?
    Sergio Pettis vs. Jussier Formiga: Good FLW matchup. I just don't care, though.
    Ovince Saint Preux vs. Dominick Reyes: LOVE this match up. Time to see if Reyes is for real
    Michelle Waterson vs. Felice Herrig: Don't care vs. Don't care. Good fap material, though.
    Alexander Volkov vs. Derrick Lewis: Good matchup. May not be the most exciting on paper, but I'm down to see it.
    Sean O'Malley vs. José Alberto Quiñónez: Like this. Time to see if O'Malley can become a contender

    Settle down Sally there are only 7 fights listed. 5-6 more to come.

    And you're lying if you say you arent interested in Volkov/Lewis or OSP/Reyes.

    O'Malley puts on fun fights. OSP vs Reyes is a good fight. Waterson vs Herrig goes to a decision probably.

    With more fights to be announced it doesn't seem terrible, if they add one high profile fight to this card it would be considered a good overall card to me.
