EMPTY ARENA UFC IS OFF AND RUNNING IN BRAZIL!

Folks, the prelims have started at UFC Brasilia in front of absolutely fucking nobody...

...and it's absolutely fucking electric. Seriously - it's awesome.

It's so echoey in the arena that you could barely make out what the first two fighters' walkout songs were, ring announcer Joe Martinez sorted paused for applause in his first introductions (which there was none of, because nobody is there), and you can hear everything so clearly - punches, kicks, stomps, corner advice, breaths - that the whole event has high school wrestling meet vibes, or - regular early prelim vibes, I suppose! 

I love it, though, and I'm honestly just glad that the ONE THING we have to keep us entertained in these crazy times is MY THING. Feels great to have a ton of eyes on an entire random Fight Night card - and one I think is gonna be pretty damn good, at that.
