Jonny Parsons vs Michael Gillmore on this card, I’m surprised Gillmore is still in the UFC

Micheal* I forgot his name is spelled wrong

That’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw that lol. That is going to be painful to watch but at least it’s an easy fight to predict. I think the lowest number of fights they do on a contract nowadays is 2 or 3, hence why he’s still here. I’ve noticed most people stick around longer than they would where back in the day they would cut people after two or three fights and not resign
