Predictions: 5 of 11 Winners, 3 Perfect, 365 Points   |   Tied for 711th

The fighters are weighed in and we're set for an amazing night of fights from MSG ... but the weigh-ins didn't go off without a hitch. 

Kelvin Gastelum continues to be one of the more unprofessional fighters in the promotion, as his fight with Cowboy is off due to another failed weight cut. Elsewhere, the "Lightweight" bout between Jim Miller and Thiago Alves is still a go, but Alves missed weight by about 7 lbs and the contest will be contested at 163 lbs. 

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm ET before switching to FS1 at 8pm. The PPV main card airs at 10pm. 

Enjoy!

If Bisping ducks Romero, he really is a joke of a champion.

@skelliher Bisping said once he loses his title he will retire. Also believe it will be soon regardless of the opponent. He reached his goal and he has that pretty paycheck. Think he can retire now and be set.

I'm 100% positive Ronda had something to do with the actual KO not shown in the promo vid. The UFC love showing KO highlights and Rohan said he's got a list of questions he's allowed to ask Ronda on his hand. She's literally trying to prevent any talk of her loss to Holly.

Then I predict that Michael Bisping will never retire.
