I imagine she'd like that, being a counter striker.

Can’t wait for Askren v Masvidal. Definitely the people’s main event like Ferguson v Cowboy was.

Hope Holly can pull it out of the bag. I at least think it could go the distance. Will be surprised if Amanda blitzes her and gets an early finish.

Obviously hope Jones gets smoked.

Rockholds LHW debut, mental Diego and Gilbert v Allen are all interesting as well.

I'd rate Rockhold more than Błachowicz but I'm expecting him to get knocked out clean. Moving up to LHW when Bisping and Yoel Romero knocked him out at MW seems like a stupid move. I expect him to retire if he gets knocked out.

First UFC I've been looking forward to properly in a long time.

Would love to see Santos and Masvidal come out on top but think it's too much to ask for them.

Luke Rockhold is getting KOd or ruined over 3 rounds unfortunately.

Hope Diego Sanchez comes out on top against Michael Chiesa and is going into UFC Hall of Fame I believe.

Can't see Amanda Nunes slowing down to let Holm have any chance of competing.

Just Realised this is now PPV , what an absolute pain. I won’t be paying it but I would normally record it to sky box and watch on Sunday morning.
Why the sudden switch to PPV ? Can’t even Order it through the sky box.

Apparently it's repeated next Friday on BT Sports. So just delete all your social media accounts, take a week off work and live in a tent in the garden til then.

No chance. Shes just signed a huge new deal. 6 fights.



If she loses she'll have a rather disappointing 5-5 record in the UFC.

Holm is 37 so coming to end but I think Nunes will have some difficulty if Holm can get her kicking game going and keep Nunes away from her.

I think Holm will win by KO

Seems to be a popular opinion , but tbh I don't get it , it's not a personality contest .He always tried to give his best in the past (outside of overlooking bisbing in their rematch ), he has serious skills on the feet and the ground . He is vocal about drug cheats in MMA aswell, which for me is a major plus in the modern culture of it just being swept under the carpet . If the weight cut was a factor in his chin issues then a rejuvenated Rockhold could be in some entertaining bouts a lhw. Have included him by sub in a very outlandish accum for tonight's card....

Holm has only had head kick success against rousey and correia, 2 of the worst standup fighters in the ufc. Holms punches are nothing more than very repetitive lunge in combinations so she always falls short against skilled fighters. I don't think Nunes will allow herself to get headkicked and Hollys hands are not a threat. You never know though, I think most likely is really boring fight where Nunes keeps her distance, making Holly miss alot.
