    So is Formiga/Benavidez the last big FLW fight in the UFC? I feel like the FLW deserve a sendoff, if only in live-forum-posting format.

    I like everything about these fights; solid matchmaking, glad it didn't take six fucking months to make happen once TJ popped.

    Moraes vs Cejudo is a very interesting matchup. They are almost the same size and not sure Moraes could keep it on the feet. Would like to see Moraes pull it off though. Hopefully in brutal fashion like the Sterling fight.

    Cejudo should not look past Moraes. Marlon has been on a tear and is a very tough out for Henry.

    I like Cejudo but he better calm down calling out one of the GOATS like that

    Moraes is definitely bigger. Moraes cut a higher percentage of his body weight to makes 135 than Cejudo did to make 125.

    Henry Cejudo (124.5 to 141 = 12.8%)

    Moraes gained 14.5 percent back after weigh-ins, coming in 155 pounds on fight day after weighing in at 135.4

    Fair enough. Good to know they aren’t as close in size as I thought. I would definitly be pulling for Moraes here. Just seems like a guy I would like to see succeed.

    Actually like a good bit of those fights. That being said this PPV will do terrible numbers. Such a shame too.

    I hope Ivanov drinks a beer from Tuivasa’s skull.
