It's gonna - or at least should be - an absolute belter of a card. Very excited for all 5 main card events.

Most likely. I'd give Rose the best chance of an upset purely because there's some MMA math there to back it up.

I’d agree Rose could sneak something.
But no idea what MMA Math your getting at?
Aware Zhang lose years ago. But might be hard to connect the dots to the UFC. But maybe

The 3 Champions will win with ease,

Usman will dominate Jorge , He took the fight as he knew it was an easy one

Zhang by Ko
Shevchemko by Ko

It's approximated MMA math . Rose beat Joanna easier than Zhang did.

Honestly think Rose will beat Zhang, Usman should beat Masvidal but I think it'll be closer than their first fight and Shevchenko will probably win every round

I'll have a few quid on Rose as the underdog, Zhang seems to leave herself open & takes a few hits & Rose has the hands

Zhang v Namajunes holds the most intrigue for me. I fully expect Usman to beat Masvidal, and V. Shevchenko fights are often so eye wateringly boring that I can't get excited.

Its amazing how UFC can trick the average fan , Masvidal is no where near the top 5 welter weights and yet this is second title shot in a year after being beat quick easily in the firs tone,

Don't get me wrong he's a decent fight but that's about it ,

I don't think anyone is being tricked, people just like Masvidal and enjoy watching him fight. They watch and pay based on that, not on any false perception that he's the best of the best in the WW division. I think it's perfectly understandable that he got the rematch, not only is he a very decent draw, there's also that whole short-notice aspect to the first fight.

Let Usman demolish him again and move on....or let Jorge get a lucky punch in. Either way I am personally fine with it and looking forward to the fight/event.
