Is it me or zabit was a little intense during the last faceoff?

I can't understand if the dude is a nice guy or a psychopath lol...
Hes def a frikken psycho.
Im actually really excited for this fight.
Thank the moons SuperSport got the rights to play UFC events live....downside is I gotta get up at like 4am and get to the living room.
But will be one of the first event I watch live at home since......2006-7, been relying on pubs otherwise.

P.S Polyana Viana is also fighting on this card....Im surprised the UFC didnt try hype her fight up after the whole catching a thief episode.

I want the Zabit train to come to an end.
Unfortunately, that requires me to cheer for a piece of shit like Jeremy Stephens.

And I dunno why this picogram thing still makes news. Jon Jones is a shit bird, but he has a a pass from the doping organization and the UFC for this. This is literally old news, and getting angry about it is fruitless unless you plan to boycott the entire event.

See you all on Saturday!

They've successfully conditioned everyone to Jones testing positive. lol

It's barely news now.
I am not conditioned to anything.

I don't give a shit about doping and think everyone is doing it, this is something I have posted multiple times in this thread and in UFC event pages.

If you want to ruin your body and the twilight of your life for my entertainment I can't get mad at that.

Okay?

Point is, Jones is the only fighter allowed to have traces of a banned substance in his body. Like, wtf.

This will be the first time I'll not care about a Jones fight. I'm sure a lot of people are on steroids, but giving him a pass is hilarious.

Just stop drug testing, and I'd be ok with that. The LHW title is now meaningless to me.

I'm glad Vitor will be fighting again in ONE. He's always been my favorite juicy fighter.

Sad to hear about Mirko. He's my all time favorite fighter and the one that got me into MMA to begin with. I'm glad he's at least making the smart decision to stop right away and going out on a nice string of wins.

Tonight's card is going to be amazing. First time I've been excited for an event in a while.

Jones x Smith - Everyone expecting an inevitable dominant win by Pico but I think Smith will surprise a lot of people and give Jon a tough 4-5 round fight.

Woodley x Usman - I love how they give all these boring fighters (Maia, Usman, Wonderboy, etc) to Woodley and them blame him for having boring fights. Usman may be a good wrestler but he has shown nothing to me that says he'll beat Woodley tonight. I see a 5 round decision asserting Woodley's dominance at WW.

Lawler x Askren - I can see Lawler giving Askren some trouble in the early rounds but this will ultimately end with Askren blanketing Lawler enough to walk away with the win if he doesn't submit by the 2nd.

Cody x Munhoz - Haven't seen many Munhoz fights but I'm rooting for Cody here. He needs the win badly to get back in the good graces of fans and to remain a viable contender.

Zabit x Stephens - Stephens is as tough as they come but he matches up pretty terribly stylistically with Zabit. Maybe a body kick KO is in the future.

Gall x Diego - Gall probably gets a submission win here but seeing Diego wallop him into living death would be pretty amazing.

You have to figure there'll be at least one upset on this card

I don't favour him but you have to admit Lawler looked fucking good on the scales

I'm also worried about Cody

Yeah Lawler looked frightening. I really like Askren's attitude and trash talk though so I'd be a bit sad to see him lose.

My gut is telling me Lawler knocks out Askren relatively quickly, but my brain says no. Very curious about that fight.
