I don't think anyone gets "super pumped" for fights or sports in general in their 30's, 40's etc... the way you did when you were younger but still...

Cejudo is going for a 2nd title vs one of the most exciting and dangerous guys out there.

Ferg, Hall and Diaz are back.

Costa, Magomedsharipov, Ortega, Ngannou, Lovato, Pico, Gracie are rising talents and they have interesting tough opponents. Chance for the first Gracie major title win in 25 years.

Askren is in the UFC vs a killer once again.

DC vs Stipe is a rematch between two of the best HWs of this era.

Lots of compelling narratives.

Looking forward to the Moraes, Ferg, Yan, Ivanov, Munhoz, and Lamas fights on the 8th despite half the card being WMMA.

The Bellator card the following week is interesting as well.
