    I'll be attending this event as I live in the Dallas area. I've been seeing lots of people locally on social media absolutely ripping this card. Saying it's trash, etc. I'm assuming it's just casuals but I wanted to get Sherdog's thoughts on this. I don't think this is a bad card at all, am I crazy here?

    Main Card
    WW - (C) Tyron Woodley 18-3-1 v (2)Darren Till 17-0
    FLW - (C) Nicco Montano 4-2 v (1)Valentina Shevchenko 15-3
    SW - (2)Jéssica Andrade 18-6 v (4)Karolina Kowalkiewicz 12-2
    SW - (6)Carla Esparza 13-5 v (9)Tatiana Suarez 6-0
    FW - (14)Yair Rodríguez 10-2 v (15)Zabit Magomedsharipov 15-1

    Prelims
    BW - (8)Aljamain Sterling 15-3 v (10)Cody Stamann 17-1
    MW - Charles Byrd 9-4 v Darren Stewart 8-3
    WW - Abdul Razak Alhassan 9-1 v Niko Price 12-1
    BW - (5)Jimmie Rivera 21-2 v (7)John Dodson 20-9

    Fight Pass Prelims
    WW - Diego Sanchez 27-12 v Craig White 14-8
    LW - Jim Miller 28-12 v Alex White 12-4
    FLW - Ryan Benoit 10-5 v Roberto Sanchez 8-1
    WW - Geoff Neal 9-2 v Frank Camacho 21-6
    BW - (12)Irene Aldana 8-4 v (13)Lucie Pudilová 8-2

    awful
    3 WMMMA on a single card is hilarious. My guess is they are testing if WMMA really does ruin a cards numbers.

    There's only two fights on there that interest me enough to look at the results the following morning.

    Just the casuals? No. It is trash.

    Main event is sick

    Zabit vs yair will be intriguing

    Sterling fight interesting

    Dodson fight banger....

    But three wmmas back to back, fml.

    I think its a pretty good card overall. Interesting, significant and fun bouts abound. Pretty much the whole main card matters division wise and the scraps certainly promise action.

    I'm in!

    Two title fights means it's not trash.

    Plus Alhassan-Price and Rivera-Dodson look solid. Good card.

    The 3 straight wmma fights on a ppv is a joke. Why is Rivera on the prelims over this shit

    Some decent fights on the prelims
    Main event and main card opener are bangers

    WMMA ruining lives tho

    In main event I meant the main event of Woodley vs Till... Not the Co main and supporting fights on the main card.

    My AV speaks for itself. I am also really excited to see Shevchenko.

    1/10

    Only saving grace is seeing Till snatch the title.

    And I like Woodley but it's Till's time I feel.

    Idiots like you need to go back and rewatch your PRIDE tapes and stop preventing the sport from progressing.... Let me guess... you bitch about "casuals" all the time? Well checking the results the next morning officially makes you a casual. And casuals like you should shut the fuck up and not bother people on this site.
