This is a sleeper event. It has the potential to be the best event thus far for the year.

I agree rappinpap, there’s a lot of talent on this card. Jose Torres is finally getting his overdue shot in the UFC, both David and Daniel Teymur are fighting, Gregor Gillespie (need I say more? Dude’s legit), and then a hell of a main event! Really looking forward to this card!

Friday night fight card?  That's different.  Especially since friday night slots for TV are usually considered a graveyard slot.

UFC should cut Aguilar. Not good, lost 2 fights. Terrible match-maker etc. She has no place on this roster.

Best case scenario for me. Just got home. More time to pregame. Worst fight all year let alone this card is scratched. I'm grateful MMA Gods, grateful.

When I read the chapped lips thing I thought it was a joke but they are reporting she legit got pulled because of chapped lips. Maybe they were worried she was dehydrated.

Yeah i think dehydration or chapped lips might be a symptom of something else they think she has.

What the hell happened? Did Brooks just KO himself with the slam?

I'll...take it?

That was a bad idea from the get go. If a guy grabs your waist to avoid the slam, you don't slam him like that, you spike him on his head instead, bad technique overall on that slam by Brooks.
