I find that the UFC is taking alot of money from they most loyal suporter with 12 PPV a year at $60 is a scam. And with fight pass at $10, So $70 and you can a playstation game or every other streaming service for that money. Think UFC should do less PPV or do what WWE do with they Network because they really ******* they most loyal fan for money

@damien. Theres no incentive. As long as people keep paying and they are making money hand over fist. They will continue. The only way to force the hand is to not pay, either by not watching or "other means" that would force them to bargain or change

Honestly if more people just streamed, they would offer the wwe package and move the cards to big networks like abc. This is the way!

I think anyone picking Yan is someone getting trick by the UFC hype machine tbh, It quite impresive how the UFC gave Yan ******** paper belt for beating old people past they're prime while avoiding all the killers in the division. It probley a 1st.

Aljo is 100% kicking this hype jobs ass because he went through the hard road to get the belt. Aljo has better stand up for points and way better on the ground. Yan can't beat him anywhere Beside getting a fluke KO. Yan will also losses to Sandhagen, TJ and Cejudo

MMA math time, Rivera outbox Yan and won because he got 2 knockdown at the end of round because Rivera has no chin, While Aljaman  outstuck him 101 to 24, Tell me who the better stand up fighter is.

Aljo is taking this cleanly. He’ll make what he did to Sandhagen look average. One mans opinion.

Santos looks lost on his back. He just lays there. And seeing what Rakic just did with some basic wrestling moves vs Smith makes me thing thats how this is gonna go. He's bigger, stronger, and has the exact moveset to get Santos down and keep him there.

Predictions: 1 of 1 Winners, 0 Perfect, 65 Points   |   Tied for 4700th

Yan vs. Sterling
Aljamain Sterling, SUB, R4
After a deep research on both fighters; their joinery into UFC and their trainers, I’ve made the conclusion that Sterling will win this fight. Petr Yan is is a force to be reckoned with. Not only does he has the mental toughness from growing up in Siberia, he has made Yoger Muay Thai his home in Thailand. The result is a durable striker with a seemingly infinite gastank. This does not convince me that he will defeat Sterling. Under the tutelage of Matt Serra, the IQ of Sterling to me much higher that Yan in terms of Octagon control. His octagon awareness and smooth transitions is so pleasing to the eye. Sterling is also an explosive striker, I just don’t see him staying planted and trading. To me Sterling will respect his striking and make him work around the cage via leg kicks jabs and the threat of taking the game to the ground. I see Sterling winning this fight, slowly eroding the tough Russian Muay Thai striker.
