17/1 for the 3 titles to change hands....

As much as id love Colby to be schooled I think he will win. the other 2 should be dead on to keep their belts, but will put money on the above for interest.

Fair play to Faber for taking this fight but he's in for a bad, bad beating on Saturday I reckon.

Aldo v Moraes is an interesting one, Moraes is a bottler and if Aldo turns up the heat on him he could wilt. Massive asterisk being the weight of course.

Listening to some of the Interviews Colby has done this week where he has toned down the gimmick and he seems like a very intelligent and likeable fella.

Can't warm to Usman at all. Should be a cracking fight.

This is some card so the fights will probably be boring as hell


Colby's shtick is tiresome but he is a great fighter. And if we see the same Usman that we saw against Woodley then it should be a great fight. I've a bad feeling there's going to be some people popping for PEDs in that division though. The cardio levels are off the scales.

Can't see Nunes being beaten. Probably thought the same about Rousey back in the day though. No idea about Holloway-Volkanovski. I'd lean towards Holloway, but mainly cause he's the incumbent.

Am I alone in thinking de Randomie will spark Nunes cold?

I wonder what odds I'd get for that?
