Jons look beatable in his last fight and normaly the fighter like Reyes who underfented in the ufc  are the ones to beat the Dominent champ I.e Weidman, Mcgregor 

Valintina vs Chookagian is going to suck and is going to make Usman sleepy with how boring this fight going to be, 

All the other fight look dope to OSP vs Spann and Ige vs Bektic

I really like this card so far, I’m considering making the drive to see it. Two title fights, Lewis is fighting, KGB is fighting, and Spann is getting the push. Ready to see what else they add to it.

Rumour is that Conor will return on this card as the co-main. I find it hard to believe but it wouldn't surprise me at this point.

@free

I don't think Conor would ever fight in a co-main event fight willingly, the UFC would have to say "If you don't take the co-main event spot, you're not on the card at all." to get him to take it.

Reyes is going to beat Jones.I'm not even saying that because I hate Jones, I genuinely believe it.

Jones looked like Dog**** against both Smith and Maretta, and really only one of those guys is a true LHW. If not for the knee injury santos would have won that fight. Reyes is a bad, bad style for John; he's a very good boxer who is very tall (same height as Jones) hits hard, and has excellent TDD in the 80 plus percentile range. (84%). He's also a southpaw. Jones's TD accuracy is only 47%. This fight will stay standing, and that's going to be a battle Jones loses. Maybe by points, maybe Reyes stops him. But either way....
Calling it now.

After beating Reyes Jones should say. "Are u not entertained Houston Texas?" 

And after the initial crowd pop he should say. "Shut the **** up, the champ is talking"

Reyes has 85% TDD? Against Kimbell, Canonier and OSP. Not exactly D1 status. Reyes was taken down multiple times against Oezdemir (who, according to commentators, it was his 3rd TD EVER in the UFC). Most important x factor in a Jones fight is cardio. Reyes gassed pretty early in that fight (which I felt he lost the first 2 rounds of). Jones NEVER gases. He is a 5 round monster.
Jones didn't look great in the Santos fight, for sure. But, he coasted to a win and was never hurt. Santos was hurt (knee injury or not). Prob the reason Jones coasted. 
As for Anthony Smith, no idea what you're on about. Jones DOMINATED from bell to bell. Literally 5 round wash.

Jones vs. Reyes
Jon Jones, DEC
‘Ladies and gentlemen, after 5 rounds we go to the judges scorecards for Decision. All three judges score this contest 50-44 for the winner by unanimous decision, And Still! The undisputed UFC light heavyweight champion of the world! Jon, Bones, JONES!’

Shevchenko vs. Chookagian
Valentina Shevchenko, DEC
Another terrible fight, it’s a very predictable one. The 2% of Tapology members who picked Katlyn should honestly go see a doctor. This fight will be the exact same as the Liz fight. Boring and just plain dominant.

Lewis vs. Latifi
Derrick Lewis, TKO, R2
Okay this fight is terrible and it makes zero sense. Lewis should easily get a KO Win in round 2.

St. Preux vs. Spann
Ryan Spann, TKO, R2
Another fun one! OSP looked borderline TERRIBLE before the comeback submission victory, he looked like he was sleepwalking or something and he needed a smack or two to wake up and realize he’s in a fight. Getting off topic here, what I mean is that **** ain’t gonna work with a guy like Ryan Spann. Expect a flash KO or a KD to a choke.

Lee vs. Murphy
Andrea Lee, DEC
A nice jab and a few Takedowns and knees and clinch exchanges is all we are getting for a stale 15 minutes

Ige vs. Bektic
Dan Ige, DEC
This has the potential to be one of the best fights of the year in 2020 and it’s for sure going to be FOTN, no bathroom breaks allowed and remember to staple your eyes open so you don’t blink!

Tafa vs. Adams
Juan Adams, DEC
Adams will get a single leg early and hold Tafa against the fence and out muscle him for 15 minutes, and for like a couple seconds every few minutes Adams may break and go crazy with punches and knees. I don’t know Heavyweights are boring what can I say

People on here complaining about the Lewis vs Latifi matchup...
Call me what you’d like, but I personally think that could be a fun fight.

We're not complaining we just think latifi is very undersized for heavyweight. And for Lewis especially. He's arguably one of the heaviest punchers in the game

I feel you. I’ve only seen a handful of Latifi’s fights, so right now I’m running through all of his bouts(Pre-UFC) included) and the dude looks a lot more solid than I had initially given him credit for.
 As of right now I still think Lewis (I’m gonna run the tape on him next)gets Latifi out of there in the 2nd.

I wouldn't count Latifi out in that one. Lewis looked like dog**** against Baga.

What I’m noticing in Latifi’s pre-UFC bouts is how dominant his wrestling was. I’m not sure if that transferred into his UFC career though. I guess I’ll find out soon enough.
Going by the DC and Ivanov fights, Lewis looks like he struggles with wrestlers. I could be wrong though, because I honestly haven’t seen a ton of his fights either.

It's a very close fight. Both hit hard, both have very ordinary cardio. Lewis Hits harder but Latifi is the bigger TD threat. 

Definitely not bettable IMO apart from a prop or under/over.
