    This Covington is so much better than his character. Damn shame he had to resort to a character to keep his job.

    Speeds, main card predictions?

    Main event should go the distance. I think the wrestling will balance out and Usman will win by being the more effective striker. Low expectations for this one.

    Holloway should beat Volkanovski in typical fashion, exerting too much pressure and breaking him down in the later rounds. Probably will go to a decision as well.

    Nunes should wipe out de Randamie quickly.

    Moraes over Aldo. First cut for Aldo should drain him. I don't think he's shot as a fighter but this reeks of desperation. He will fight not to lose and lose anyway.

    Yan vs. Faber I dunno. Yan by decision probably.

    I don't think Nunes and de Randamie will go to decision but this is always the risk with having multiple title fights. Could be a long night. They should cut the main card down to four fights or even just three.

    Faber dropped three times and cut badly in the second. Yan is a bit wild. He is like a mini Nate Diaz. Big power in his punches, though.

    Yan finishes Faber with a head kick. Showed he could take a shot and deliver bigger ones. Love to see him fight again.

    Edit: 40-year old Faber was nuts fighting this guy, holy shit.

    Aldo is owning a very good fighter in Moraes.

    Don't put him against Yan, UFC.

    Awful split decision in favour of a STUNNED Moraes.

    Aldo looked good, but I had it the same as the ref; 1 and 3 for Moraes.

    Didn't expect Nunes wrestling for 5 rounds...

    Was not expecting Covington to be the more creative one.

    No wrestling so far.
