    This card is starting to look pretty good with Colby vs Lawler / Miller vs Guida / Latifi vs Volkan

    He broke his back. Spinal.

    Apparently. In his fight week interviews leading up to it he seemed fine.

    Every card they be doing is looking like 100x better than ufc 240.. and yet 240 is charging 135 + 20 $ con fee for the cheap seats.

    According to his coach, he had the injury for months but it was under control. It got worse during the weight cut and during the last practice it got severe. However, team all-star is shit at handling and preventing injuries so I'm not surprised. Their trackrecord is awful. Interesting interview btw about the gym, Gus, Latino.

    Battle of gatekeepers. Rooting for Volkan but his grappling is horrible, so I expect Queen L to win this.

    Unless a couple of the fights that were added when the event was linked to Sochi shift to other events, the card is nearly complete.

    Im glad they rebooked this fight, it makes sense and for the division being so shallow, these two need to fight.

    Could be fireworks.

    Not only that....

    but $400 + for 1st level seating.

    The card literally has sold less than 1/4 of the tickets. Go to ticketmaster and look at the page and you will see blue dots everywhere.

    They need to add some major last minute tune up fights or this card is going to flop financially. (or at least at the gate, I guess they don't care about PPV buys anymore)

    The Canadian cards are struggling without the excitement of GSP and Elias Thedeorou
