    UFC 238 was great stuff. Really enjoyed it.
    Doesn't seem like anything even close to this one will be coming up for a while.

    Ferguson always seems to be on dope cards. Guy is a real life anime ninja lol

    edit - Bellator 222 has a lot of potential as well. Now we're done here.

    239 will be at least 1600x better

    Well tbh, I did overlook 239. That actually does have a lot of good, eagerly anticipated fights.

    Around the same level s 238 imo.

    What other stacked or great cards besides those though.

    238 is better than 239.

    Cejudo wining in upset to be double champ > an easy Bones win over an out matched opponent

    Valentina with greatest KO in womens mma history > a sure fire Holly Msndy snooze.

    Ferg n Cowboy > any other 3 fights on 239 combined

    It was solid going on, and I felt like it was worth the buy.

    Looking ahead, there sure isn't anything as good, until perhaps 241.

    239 and 241 look pretty damn good on paper.

    Maybe we get a card with Colby vs Usman and Adesyana vs Whittaker at the end of the year

    238 has actually happened, and before it did people were shitting on the card.

    On paper, 239 is better. Who know how it'll play out.

    It's the best so far.

    But if we get some upset at UFC 239, that will be the best. Imagine Jones and Nunes losing.

    In my opinion, 238 was clearly better than 239 on paper for a few reasons.

    1. 238 was one of the deepest cards we've seen in a long time. The prelims alone featured 4 fighters ranked in the top 5.

    2. Tony-Cowboy was much more anticipated than anything on 239.

    3. 239 is headlined by a squash match, with Jones fighting another MW journeyman.

    My favorite upset would be Masvidal via KO/TKO.
