@ free, i like wmma almost as much as you do. but what we consider to be a hot woman is very different. personally i am partial to asians, the chinese, south koreans and especially the japanese are the ones i find the hottest, and sexiest. thats all.

Yeah,the main doesn't really do it for me either. I just don't see what this fight will prove, and it doesn't set anything interesting up either. If Frankie somehow wins, which is exceedingly unlikely, then he gets Volkanovski, who is basically him version 2.0. if he loses, who do they give him? Stephens? If Max wins, which he almost certainly will, virtually nobody will be impressed. I suppose they had to give him a safe one after Poirier. Ortega vs Volkanovski or Volkanovski vs Max is more intriguing. I think Max either finishes or beats Zabit every round. though. Zabit vs Volk could be interesting, but I'm not sure anyone beats Volk other than Max, and even then, he's got a very good shot at getting it done.

It's a Canadian card boys deal with it. Max is literally the biggest Canadian fighter ufc has and he's Hawaiian.

Not to complain max is a great fight and so is/was edgar but this card is trash for a ppv. Most intriguing fight on the card is pantoja vs figueiredo

Folks saying it’s a trash card. I think it’s a great card. I would think people would get tired of seeing the same fighters every other month. I love it! 😜

Predictions: 10 of 12 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 380 others   |   View

Holloway vs. Edgar
Max Holloway, TKO, R4
Don’t even know how to say this but, rip the Answer. It’s gonna be a repeat of the Ortega fight, Edgar will be dying for the takedown but never get in and get pieced up. He will be served a 50 piece combo with extra hot sauce. MAULING.

Cyborg vs. Spencer
Cris Cyborg, TKO, R1
Cyborg will mess up Spencer, point blank. Spencer will be trying for the takedown but will get smashed into next century and is gonna get knocked TF OUT!

Neal vs. Price
Niko Price, TKO, R2
Fun fight for sure. I choose Price by some kinda knockout. VIOLENCE is garunteed!

Aubin-Mercier vs. Tsarukyan
Olivier Aubin-Mercier, SUB, R3
idk

Jotko vs. Barriault
Krzysztof Jotko, DEC
Jotko by boring decision.

Pantoja vs. Figueiredo
Deiveson Figueiredo, DEC
Deiveson just the better all around fighter. Gonna be a fight for sure.

Robertson vs. Frota
Sarah Frota, DEC
weird decision idk boring fight

It's not a strong card, but it's par for the course for Canada. The main and co-main should be good.

Having Jotko and OAM on the main card is a weird decision considering they're decisionators, but at least they don't just lay and pray most of the time. Granted Krzysztof could always get KO'd. Even if nothing else delivers, Geoff/Niko should save the card.

Spencer could be incredible if she beats cyborg.
They try to force as many Canadian fighters in as possible.

I'm picking her by decision, but I fully expect Cyborg to overwhelm her at some point.

Still, gotta go with the option that will bring forth a fresh matchup. Who knows, maybe she'll be able to keep Cyborg grounded for most of the fight.

@the snake also how will cyborg be after getting ko'd? She must have felt invincible before.
