    They're gonna have The Rock do the belt ceremony after the fight? Jesus, we've jumped the shark if we haven't already.

    With the rock ESPN and the UFC all promoting this fight like crazy, very good chance it tops a million ppv buys

    Or maybe not i don't know how the espn + exclusivity has affected buys.

    I would say quite a bit. With people not knowing how ESPN + works regarding ordering ppvs to someone like me just waiting for Disney+ which will have ESPN+. I hope it does super well

    Honestly it's been a few years since I've watched a whole fight card, or even most of a fight card. I watched most of yesterday's Fight Night 160: Hermansson vs. Cannonier. I didn't read this whole thread, so please excuse me if this has already been said. But they were flashing a graphic on the screen, a lot, during the event that it was the 495th UFC event ever. UFC 244 will be the 500th UFC event ever... So of course they had to make up a belt, after their original main event fell apart (and moved to 245). But 2 dudes who clearly aren't bad mother fuckers pulled themselves out of the main event. So honestly, I'm not even mad.*

    *Other than the fact that the UFC should have stacked this card from top to bottom and tried to outdo UFC 100 and 200. Fucking morons.

    Solid fucking match-ups, top to bottom. Really looking forward to Gregor Gillespie vs. Kevin Lee.

    If his nickname isn't Abracadabra, I hope he loses.

    Already angling for the winner. Well done. He just better not say that then go out and lose to that clown.

    Brilliant. And he's right. The BMF belt is fun between two guys I like but who don't have championship wins. Stipe is a BMF. Izzy is a BMF. Jones is a bad mother fucker. Nate loses the fights we know he'll lose. Jorge is one of my favorites but is just now putting together a championship run in the UFC.

    People should drool over the fight and roll their eyes at the belt.

    Depending on how you scored the Conor rematch, you could argue that Nate has won four straight fights where he wasn’t the betting favorite.

    Pretty sure it was an odds coinflip for the Pettis fight. I think Johnson was the only real underdog fight in those 4 and it was, admittedly, a coming out party for Nate but not a referendum on the styles he historically struggles with.

    The first fight against a full camp Conor on short notice wasn’t a real underdog fight for Nate?
