    The two best title fights currently scheduled. Toronto is getting a great show.

    Fuck yes. I think Valentina takes this handily, but holy shit can you count on JoJo Violence to bring the fuckin' pain.

    Is there much size difference here? I know they're about the same height but body size, how much bigger will Bullet be than JJ?

    Not that much. I think there is about a 5-10 pound difference in what they’ve said they usually weigh — JJ’s cut to 115 has never been easy for her and Valentina walks around at 138.

    Good. I was worried that there would be a size disadvantage

    Oh there is some difference. Valentina beat Holly Holm. JJ is a bad woman but what do you think she would look like against Holly Holm or Amanda Nunes. She would get rag dolled. I think she’ll get ragdolled here.

    I think it'll be pretty clear that Valentina has a weight and strength advantage. Valentina started her kickboxing at 57kg (basically flyweight in pounds), moved up to 60kg (just shy of bantamweight), and has only looked small compared to massive bantamweights like Holly. In contrast, JJ started at 57kg in kickboxing but found that she could move to 115 in MMA. And while she's long for the division, she's not particularly large for the weight class IMO as you can see against women like Rose whom no one is calling for to cut less weight.

    Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago 'Marreta' Santos, Eryk Anders vs. Elias Theodorou added to UFC 231

    I copied the card listing from the article:
    • Champ Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega – for featherweight title
    • Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Valentina Shevchenko – for vacant women’s flyweight title
    • Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Gilbert Burns
    • Chad Laprise vs. Dhiego Lima
    • Kyle Bochniak vs. Hakeem Dawodu
    • Devin Clark vs. Aleksandar Rakic
    • Nina Ansaroff vs. Claudia Gadelha
    • Brad Katona vs. Matthew Lopez
    • Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago “Marreta” Santos
    • Eryk Anders vs. Elias Theodorou

    First, this card is amazing! But how in the fuck is Anders coming back this quickly? He's already fought twice in the last three months or so. Most recently getting KO'd in one of the most worrying ways possible. I really hope he's surrounded by the right people because he has a lot of potential.

    Joe just gets worse and worse, doesn't he? Pay a little attention and you'd realize Sijara is a multi-time BJJ world champ who was put through a buzzsaw at Lloyd Irvin's and came out the other side and started her own gym. Now I'm not a fan of Irvin for obvious reasons but he creates good/great fighters and grapplers, and if Sijara can get it to the ground with top position, this fight can go her way. It's a much more competitive fight than against Joanna.

    It's because she's black.
