Predictions: 8 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 515 Points   |   Tied for 291st

Prelims kick off at approximately 730pm ET on UFC Fight Pass, followed by FOX Sports 1 prelims at 8pm and the main card on PPV at 10pm. 

Not quite "best card ever" material, but solid nonetheless.

Good luck!

Bones is easily the LHW GOAT at this point, he's certainly in the argument for overall GOAT too.

Pretty much as I expected except Glover's cardio and overall toughness was much much better than I expected. His TDD was a lot more solid than I gave it credit for as well...

The sheer level of disappointment on Glover's face is making me incredibly sad.  I really do love watching Glover fight.
