7 fight main card? That'd be worth the ppv $$ but I doubt it'll end up like that

Love how people were  non stop complaining about Dustin, Justin and Chandler kept fight eachother becuase of contender not having a chance then also think when they fight eachother it the best thing ever, I personally think it the best thing ever, but I just think people need to stop complaining if you like the fights becuase you shouldn’t complain about something you like

I think Jan loses it and will be an underdog going into the fight with Alex. Yeah he's the former LHW champ but since winning against Adesanya he seems shot Alex by R1 KO
