Let’s be honest

This is a terrible night of fights. Shall I say, boring? Somebody said this card is stacked. They lied.

Early prelims:

Chance somebody v whatever

Belal  Muhammed v Geoff Neal. I was  rooting for Muhammed,  but he lost to a guy from the Contender Series.

Bermudez against another dude from the Contender. He won via decision. Decision.

Late prelims:

Another alum of Contender. Jeez.

Jojo got a decision. Omg, this is brutal.

Cowboy v Hernandez – A fight I wanted to see. A reminder that there are levels, and that it’s not yet time for the Cowboy to retire. If Dana keeps giving him winnable fights like this, he’ll be around forever.

Main card

Glover. I’m glad he won. If Dana keeps giving him winnable fights against dudes who can’t wrestle…

Paige and Rachel. No comment.

Joe B v Ortiz? I thought the flyweights were going away?

Yancey v Gregor Gillespie. Whoever enters the cage like he’s going to the club…

Let’s be real honest. Was this the best showcase for the first card on ESPN?

Best nights

The UFC had a great night last night. The very best ones are when the favorites don’t win, and everyone is shook. Like that night when TJ, Rose, and GSP won. I can watch that 10 times in a row. Or when TJ beat Cody again and Cejudo beat DJ. Good stuff.

The UFC is moving to ESPN in 2019. I just hope they dont change certain aspects of the viewing experience.

Don’t change Embedded. I like watching the fighters travel around the world, doing what they love. If anything, make the episodes longer.

Keep The Contender series.

Keep TUF but make some changes to the format. More training and fighter prep. No more house shenanigans because I really don’t care.
