apparently Topuria has problems with the weight cut and cancelation is highly possible

We can probably say now that first 2 cards of this year are rather weak

with the exception of few fights

price raise of PPV was ESPN's doing. UFC has no say in what ESPN can charge for something on their platform

Topuria better gets a nutritionist because I don't see him doing as good in LW as he could do in FW

Like how tf did viera and ilia stay healthy the entire ******* time their fights have been announced and then they get 2 days before fighting and all of a sudden they aren’t healthy anymore/have health issues? So ******* annoying. I hope ilia realizes he’s 11-1 now cuz he was harshing on movsar for pulling out saying he forfeited his 0. Guess what? You just forfeited your 0 *******

they stayed healthy all the way up to now because they weren't cutting weight drastically until this week. Both have weight cutting issues. Vieira looks like hes 235 on fight night. I assume he knew it was going the way the Hernandez fight weight cut went and didnt want that showing of himself again. Ilia prob similar. bodies are failing on fight week from the cuts.

N'Gannou vs. Gane
Francis N'Gannou, TKO, R4
People are underestimating Ngannou chin and cardio for this fight .... i know Ciryl is always improving but Francis has so much behind , it will be one of the best fights of 2022.

Moreno vs. Figueiredo III
Brandon Moreno, DEC
Mental power is all that matters and the assasin baby knows the defeat , he has the heart to get the victory with him for a long time

Pereira vs. Fialho
Michel Pereira, SUB, R2
Pereira get this to the ground and submits him 70 % sure about this :)

Stamann vs. Nurmagomedov
Said Nurmagomedov, TKO, R2
Crazy mentality , crazy moves , always learning something new its like a Zabit 2.0 and from Russia .... what a else could be :D

Barcelos vs. Henry
Victor Henry, SUB, R3
I believe in this man for some reason ...

Morales vs. Giles
Trevin Giles, DEC
Coin flip , is this or Giles by DEC

And yeah I get that they botched the weight cuts and that happens sometimes but of course it’s happening now. I’m not annoyed they ****** up the weight cut I’m annoyed that **** like thsi keeps happening. We had that wave of covid for Jan 15 that ****** everything up and now we haven’t had any covid cancellations (except for movsar) but instead everyone forgot how to properly cut weight
