Ok let's go 2 for 2 on being wrong. I got Maia right but was a double prediction and kind of cheating.

Thank goodness I don't make drinking games for this as some people do.

I'll take Moraes in this one by KO. I'm probably wrong again.

Takeaways from tonight:

Johnny Walker is scary and the Earth is, in fact, not flat
Holy shit Marlon Moraes is good
Holy shit, Jose Aldo is still good
Holy shit though, Max Holloway is so god damned good.

Tight choke.

I finally got something partially right. Sub not KO.

Woo bed before 3.30 am. I have a love/hate relationship with being a UK MMA fan.

UFC need to stop putting events in the middle of the night to cater to you Americans. It's after 1 am in Fortaleza now. =P

Still doesn't help if every fight goes to decision. Tonight we got lucky with loads of early finishes.
It does matter even IF every fight goes to decision right because it starts two hours earlier. Also, FS1 would always fill in the space between fights with the desk. We would sometimes see 20 minutes of dead air. ESPN+ simply runs the adds and jumps into the next fight.

Ok, I'm done. Any other night I would have been asleep about 4 hours ago.

Looking forward to 234. Israel Adesanya is going to brutalise Anderson into retirement, it will be glorious

Anderson channels the last of his Matrix Power and knocks Israel stone dead with a strike we can't perceive with the naked eye.
Highly unlikely, also bear in mind Anderson is off the roids now, he has been popped so many times I don't think he wants to get caught again.

Either that or he goes fuck it I am retiring soon anyway and roids like crazy because he doesn't give a shit.

Ok, bed time for real this time. My eyes are legit stinging.

Lets be honest, i think anderson doesnt care if he wins or get a beat up.
He just want to stay in the show and make some money, he’s way past his prime.
If he’s still young, that poor guy would be destroyed

Fake news, was reported he's fighting for them but apparently its just fighter relations -


Even in that role I'm shocked they can afford him

Catching up on the earlier fights... Would Johnny Walker have been banned from the UFC if that running kick had landed after he knocked dude down? Wtf man talk about losing your head in the moment.

Holy shit at that main card next week. That is a lot of garbage to watch just to be disappointed once Silva gets sent to Valhalla .

Adesanya is the best striker Anderson has ever faced, even if Anderson was young he would still be up a against a very tough challenge.

Am I the only one that isn’t on that Stylebender hype train yet and think that +500 Spider bet is looking juicy ?

Spider is 43 and off the dick pills but damnit I still believe .

Stylebender was impressive against Brunson but let’s be real...his competition prior has been shit.

Marvin Vetori? Brad Tavares? Rob Wilkinson?

I can’t crown this dude yet for styling on some bottom feeders. I like the bet on Spider. Stylebenders chin will get tested, let’s see how he handles that.

I think Israel will win, but I think Silva has an ok chance at pulling off the upset, especially at those odds.
