LET'S GOOOOO!!! FACE THE PAIN MOTHAFUCKAS!!! FANS ARE BACK!!!
I know we've all been talking about how great the UFC has been during this horrible pandemic, and how hearing the sounds of the octagon has actually been quite the interesting layer to the broadcasts - but GOD DAMN the videos from these prelims truly prove that the energy of a sold out crowd is undefeated. Imagine what the atmosphere for Jorge Masvidal's Scarface walkout in Florida is gonna be like later?!
I've gotten a lot of people askin who I've got tonight, and honestly, I think we'll hear #andSTILL three times in a row. I see the main event going very similarly to the last fight between these guys (some big exciting spurts for Masvidal, but an overwhelming grappling/foot-stomping performance from Usman overall) - I think Valentina Shevchenko will dominate from the start (she just seems unbeatable at Flyweight right now), and while Rose Namajunas has the best shot to take down a champion tonight in my opinion, I just think Weili Zhang is going to overwhelm her with power and explosiveness that I'm not sure Rose is ready for.
We've got a great boost on the Barstool Sportsbook featuring those three fighters winning, as well…..
Anthony Smith/Jimmy Crute are opening the main card in what should be a banger of a Light Heavyweight fight, and Long Island's own Chris Weidman will try to keep the momentum going for his gym after training partner Jimmy "The Cheeserolla" Frevola handled business last night….
I truly can't wait - it's been an amazing night of fights so far, and I think we're gonna get a fired up Dana White at the post fight presser in more ways than one….
P.S. Apologies for the delay on the blog here - was at a very important family engagement this evening #somethings
