Ye Ladd looked like **** against norma. I’m gonna assume a lot of that was due to the layoff and pressure on her so I assume she’s gonna look different in this fight but Aldana is really good. Also no clue if Ladd even makes weight

I have no idea honestly. Maybe rose/esparza 2 (depends on how long that cut Esparza got takes to heal). I think volk vs max 3 and yan vs sterling 2 will be on either this card or 272 or they put one on 272 and one on this one. Edwards vs Usman hasn’t been announced so maybe that too. Probably will only be one title fight on this card tho in all honesty

I would say Valentina could always defend but not really sure there’s any contenders rn unless they give taila santos the shot but I feel like she needs one more fight

Yeah I’d say Santos needs one more fight, but I do think that she has a chance to beat Valentina.

thats a good point actually. she's one of the only people who hasn't fought Valentina before. I just feel like they could match her up with someone else first cuz theres not much hype on her yet. she needs someone like Lauren Murphy or Andrade (Santos vs Andrade would be a ******* banger).

Why do people talk about Aldana’s weight miss like it’s normal? That was the first time in her career, and as a woman myself her excuse of her period effecting the weight cut is true. Guys wouldn’t understand that part of it. Though Aspen doesn’t really have a good excuse.

Whenever a fighter misses weight it’s usually the only thing fans remember and not every other time they made weight. At least she had a reasonable excuse, aspen on the other hand 😬

In 2022

Predictions: 0 of 11 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 281 others

Peña will defend against Nunes then lose to Valentina. She will then vacate 125 and defend her new belt, ending the year as bw champ. 

Taila Santos will defeat Andrade for the vacated belt at 125. 

Elsewhere in woman’s classes in the UFC Marina Rodriguez murders a Thug for her belt. She should be undefeated. I thought she beat Esparza. 

Nunes will be destroyed by Kayla if she signs or they dump the weight class. 

I have spoke.

its a good fight! Major step up for Kamzat but I think its a more winnable fight for him then the Edwards or Covington fights.

This card is sick if Khamzat vs burns is actually on it too (not that it doesn’t look good already)
