After watching the weigh-ins, I'm wishing Smolyakev and Mihajlovic were switched up. Don't think either would really stand much of a chance vs. Ngannou but Bojan's body language made me think he'd handle either of the other 2. Probably reading way too much into it but with as shallow as HW has become with prospects, it's enough to make me more interested in both HW fights.

I wish the stupid UFC would have re-matched Holm vs Tate, now the division is all ****** up with Nunes as champion who no one thinks is the best 135er. Holly is the best at 135 and 8/10 times I think Holly would beat the crap out of Miesha.

Kind of weak card overall, especially for a Fox card which is supposedly the 2nd of their 4 tiers.

Looks like Smolyakov is going to need a lifeguard to save him from the ass whooping Henrique is dishing out.  That takedown was insane.

Smolyakov looks so bad. Just sitting there getting beat up, whining about non-existent shots to the back of the head. KLB looks good, though. At least there's one positive takeaway.

Strange game plan from Smolyakov and lost without appeal!
