Most of these match-ups suck a$$. Including the main event. Shelby does realize Bob is allowed to fight strikers right? No, he probably doesn't...god awful match-making as usual


Stosic vs Nzechukwu? God freaking awful

Touahri still in the UFC? Why? 

Why haven't Jim Miller & Clay Guida been KO'd by all these Russians yet? Taisumov could KO both on the same night, so let him. 

Latifi is scared of Volkan. 60% chance this fight is cancelled again.

Lalwer vs Covington is a fight that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Colby vs Usman or GTFO. It is ridiculous. Haqparast should be getting a higher ranked guy. Just a ******** card all around, really.

Covington need a paycheck and Usman need some surgery/rest

Lawler generally fight good when facing passive fighter (Mcdonald, Woodley...) Covington has one big win and it's againss a guy that always lose when facing wrestler. Could be Lawler by TKO or Covington by DEC

The rest of the card is ****t...

The start time for this event is still listed at Noon because this card was rumored for Sochi but since it's now officially in Newark I doubt that's still accurate.

@fish it's been way too long since we seen Colby. Usman is the fight I agree but he's injured so is woodley I'drather not wait another year to c the people's champ Colby Covington.

PLS PLS PLS... Could it have been anyone better than HARD HITTIN COUNTRY CHAMP Robbie Lawler?? I think we will be blessed with a fast knock out that puts Covington back where he belongs to, oblivion.

Guida vs. Miller
Jim Miller, SUB, R2
VETERAN VS VETERAN , what does entering the ufc hall of fame do for Guida?

Silva vs. Haqparast
Nasrat Haqparast, TKO, R2
This guy is GERMAN xD but he wants it and may get another tko win here

Shevchenko vs. Pudilová
Antonina Shevchenko, DEC

Fish if you like to watch  dry hump someone, I suggest you to Go on you****. If you're lucky with you're search you can find a Bea Malecki looking girl dry humping someone. Thats will be a lot better then the Covington ****t!

Not interested in watching anyone dryhumping anyone, and if I were, I doubt you**** or indeed any ****ography site would be the place to go looking for it. Surely such a thing would be antithetical to the mission of ****ography in general and would make for, specifically,very dull ****ography that would not appeal to anyone--indeed, this would result in a commercial disaster. Especially if Bea was one set of the scissors and her face was visible.

There's many other layers of ******ation to your post which I'm too hungover to address, not the least of which being that at no point did I say I enjoy watching covington fight--I don't. It's simply important to me that the issue of the interim belt gets resolved so the division can move in.

The next time you have thought, please examine it for fidelity before posting it. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool then to speak and remove all doubt.
