Excited to see what Ponzinibbio looks like! 7 fight win streak. If he looks good, it's another good contender in the mix.

Yeah...   But I think since I only drink at night, I have like a few hours of drinking time in me. Not an all day kinda Sunday football drinking guy at all. So when I have my six pack during the fights, I'm usually pretty sleepy and useless after the main event. Which is now like at 2 on!

  • Condit: 90% of his wins are by finish.
  • Brown: 91% of his wins are by finish.

Maybe a POTN in this one? If this was seven or eight years ago, I'd probably say "no doubt." Tough to predict in 2021.

Eight of the 10 fighters on the main card finish at least 70% of their wins. The only 2 who don't are in the main event.  Solid main card from a Just Bleed standpoint.

Seven of the 10 fighters in the prelims finish 70% or more of their wins. Amazingly, that includes 3 of the chicks on the card. WTF.

I don’t like this middle of the day cards I feel like my day is kinda stuck doing nothing 

 

I like getting shit done and then relaxing watching UFC now it’s reversed

Agree and they got to be losing a big part of their US audience. Does Europe make up for it?

Heres an idea...record it, carry on with you day, stay off mma related stuff until you sit down to watch and relax in the evening.

Its 2021 man...

I don't mind early cards. On a normal card I end up not sleeping until like 4 in the morning. My heart rate and anxiety gets all hyped up from the fight and I have to wind down after

When I was young whenever a fight happened with chicks it turned all of us on and everybody wanted to watch chicks fight. I’d always try to hit the chicks that won. My best friend that was a chick used to starch bitches and I used to give her the starch.
