Such a top heavy card. Could tune in during the 3 fight on the main card and be fine.

Card is sorta meh, but I got hooked up with tickets from a a vendor - so I’m finally making it to my first live event. Been following he sport since the 90’s, but never made it to an event. 

 

Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked to see it live.

I don't even necessarily disagree all that much, just tired of all the constant whining.

This is a terrible card. Please combine the 125lb and 135lb division. I looked forward to the PFL cards this month more than this.

I’ve been to a bunch of live events, if they’re still doing the earbuds with commentary, get them, I usually just have one in so I can listen along and also still enjoy my buddies. 

 

Youre gonna have a blast, it’s usually electric in any arena.

UFC tells us every chance we get that DJ is the Goat but they don't even have him as headliner? Are they afraid of a mass exodus after the TJ vs Cody fight?
