    They're really not breaking the bank on the supporting cast here.

    Surprisingly solid card,but not many people will be interested in watching. Its your typical card for hardcore fans

    Taisumov,Ngannou are very exciting fighters

    So is Dalby

    Magomedov is the most underrated HW and a brilliant striker for HW standards

    Eager to see how Tybura looks like against UFC competition

    JDS Rothwell is not a perfect matchmaking but it has JDS so entertainment is guaranteed

    Other fights should be fun too,European newcomers are usually exciting win or lose.

    Idk jds vs reem was fairly lack luster. Jds needed to rush Reem and get the easy ko but he stayed outside and got picked apart. Reem got destroyed by Rothwell and insee him doing the same to jds . Rothwell will have the weight and power to hurt and sub jds likely in the 2nd rnd.

    solid card
    I feel like Blachowicz has received a lot of opportunities and he hasn't made a good run in UFC. He is a recognized name thanks to KSW but I expected more from him
    I hope Tybura can have a good run tho

    Velickovic is finally in UFC, awesome!!!

    He is not top WW material but he always has fun fights. Kinda like Condit, great with kicks and slick ground game. Really happy that he made it into UFC.

    He should win this fight. WAR Veli!!

    he has a lot of hype after KO'ing Latifi in first, he even break top 15 in LHW with this win. But was too tentative against Manuwa and Anderson outwrestled him easily

    I hope he wins though and then fights Gus

    JDS should have been booked against Arlovski, Barnett or Antonio Silva since their coming off losses. And Rothwell should fight maybe Travis Browne.

    Magomedov should hopefully put on a clinic.

    Also those ticket prices are really good, hope this is something that continues in Europe.

    Although I doubt it with PPV prices in the US hitting $65.

    Well thats his style. He tends to rely on his quickness, stay on the outside and leap in with strikes when again dangerous strikers... He aint the browler and most the time he wouldnt force finishes if he believes that would leave him in danger. Carwin, Big Country. even against Mir he was quite cautious.

    That said indeed he should have pressured Reem, since the latter is famous for breaking mentally and not having the best chin
