The fighters are weighed in, and this **** is actually happening!!! The whole main card stayed intact!

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 630pm ET Saturday night before switching to FS1 at 8pm. As always, the PPV main card starts at 10pm. 

Here's hoping we get something to top or rival UFC 189. 

Enjoy!

Ridiculously stacked card on paper.  Overall, I can see it beating UFC 189.  It will be hard to top Lawler-MacDonald for fight of the year, though.

Tecia Torres got some howls at the weigh in when she stripped down. :-)

I've went back and forth for months who if Jacare would win or Romero, same goes for Conor or Aldo. In the end I went with Romero and Conor, not exactly sure why.

Aldo/McGregor, Weidman/Rockhold, Romero/Jacare and Maia/Nelson all seem 50/50 to me. Probably going to go back and forth several times.

I don't see Nelson/Maia as 50/50. I believe Gunni will be too fast, tag him standing early and then ... wait for it ... submit him. Yup. It'll be a dazed Maia, not straight up grappling submission, but I've played this fight so many times in my head and it goes: straight right down the pipe, Maia drops, Gunni rear-naked chokes him almost every time.

I hope I'm wrong but I think aldo takes this  and I'm torn with maia gunni but I'm leaning Maia now,  he looks in great shape for 38, gunni Is an ace,  but he's always in mediocre physical shape(if he was in his very best physical athletic shape, he would already be top 3/5 contender )

Romero is gonna rag doll jacre , even at 38 he looks exactly what an elite level mma athlete should look like , imagine if he was still 28?? Silver Olympic medal in freestyle wrestling. That's enough for me.

Ragdoll Jacare? Yeah, Romero is a beast, but have you seen Jacare? I don't think anyone is ragdolling that man.
