    Add Nate and Dustin and it could be legendary.

    Watching the Early Weigh-in livestream on mute is hilarious. So far the subtitles have Demetrious Johnson as "To Matrix Johnson" and TJ as "Delicious Saw"

    Really hope Khabib and Conor will be there!

    Im looking way too much into this but maybe it’s starting so early (hr and a half before weigh ins)so they have s separate presser for them afterwards.

    If I'm speculating...

    Guaranteed
    • UFC 228: Tyron Woodley (c) vs. Darren Till
    • UFC 228: Nicco Montaño (c) vs. Valentina Shevchenko
    • UFC 230: Dustin Poirier vs. Nate Diaz
    • UFC 230: Luke Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman
    • UFC 230: Yoel Romero vs. Paulo Costa

    Probable
    • UFC 229: Khabib Nurmagomedov (c) vs. Conor McGregor
    • TUF 28 Promotion: Robert Whittaker (c) vs. Kelvin Gastellum
    • UFC 232: Cris Cyborg (c) vs. Amanda Nunes

    Long Shot
    • UFC 231: Georges St-Pierre vs. Anderson Silva

    Anyone who thinks that Conor is here is delusional. Conor and Khabib could fill a press conference on their own.

    These kind of press conferences are used to show up and coming stars to the public and some semi draws like Rockhold en Weidman. So everyone gets at least 1 question. My guess:

    Guaranteed:
    • UFC 228: Tyron Woodley (c) vs. Darren Till
    • UFC 228: Nicco Montaño (c) vs. Valentina Shevchenko
    • UFC 230: Luke Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman
    • UFC 230: Yoel Romero vs. Paulo Costa
    • UFC 230 Israel Adesanya vs Derek Brunson
    • Headliner somewhere: Anthony Smith vs Volkan Oezdemir
    Potential guys with a new fight announcement; Colby,Usman,Lee,Ponzi

    yeah i also feel like if Conor & Khabib were in LA for this, it 100% would have been leaked out there by now.

    Hopefully Conor and Khabib won't be there, that would overshadow everyone else.
