    Has anyone else been watching the interviews with Diego Sanchez that have been coming out in the last two weeks? He comes off as so unhinged it's almost disturbing. The guy has always been a weirdo but this is way beyond that. He's come off like a complete mental patient.

    I want to see Chiesa keep the ball rolling at 170, but seeing him hit a blatantly CTEd Diego will be uncomfortable.

    I won't be uncomfortable watching Luke Rockhold getting hit. They guy has only had three fights since 2015 and two of those fights were humiliating knockout losses. And yet Rockhold seems more arrogant than ever.

    Gadelha vs. Markos is an interesting fight that has gone totally under the radar. There were several years where Claudia Gadelha seemed miles ahead of everyone in the division except Joanna. Now Joanna has lost 3 of her last 4, and Claudia seems to only have 1 round worth of cardio. Big opportunity for Markos to score an upset and become a contender.

    Rockhold doesn't have to cut 35lbs to make weight. It will be interesting to see how he performs at a higher weight. My guess is his chin will let him down again.

    What up guys, evidently I haven't posted here since 2013. That seems impossible, but maybe it's true. Or a bunch of posts got deleted. Anyone still around from back in the day?

    Lots of fun fights on this card.

    Idk. LHW really sucks man. Thiago Santos had a really bad chin at MW, so did Anthony Smith.

    Just watching the highlights of Sanchez vs Guida HOF fight,how stupid was Guida never tying his hair back there's no way it wasn't a hindrance that effected his vision in fights

    Even if it doesn't affect your vision, it ****s with your concentration. This coming from a personal experience.

    Good to know that I am not the only one here watching the prelims. Been a while since I stuck through an entire UFC card. Just shows how weak this weeks boxing is.

    He's definitely up against it but i'm hoping for good performance from Melendez in the next fight against Allen as he likely needs a win to remain in the UFC.
