@Duck I agree. For kbob Dustin Kara France opened the card as first fight of the night. I watched it on the subway, now he is main card on PPV? Dumb

My dad is a big Kai Kara-France fan. I like the guy too but, what about him is just the thing that makes you a fan? He just seems kinda bland

Pretty sure it’s not a 2pm start time ... UFC.com says normal times for a ppv (early prelims @ 6:30 , tv prelims @ 8 , PPV @ 10) 

To me it wouldn’t make sense if it is a day card because all the fight island cards in July including 251 was a normal PPV time wise

Do some of the main event prop bets odds JUMP out to anyone too?!

Izzy Rd 4.5, Dec is +200, Izzy UD is +500 (I think I’m going to be looking DEEPLY into this line) 

Costa props also provides some interesting opportunities to hedge bets and still make some $: Costa 1-3 is +240 and Costa Rd 4,5, Dec is +500

I was already leaning heavily towards an Izzy win (via Dec) so this looks ******* golden to me. Gonna have do a bit more tape study, but thinking main event will be my main betting focus next weekend. 🤔
