Gonna battle the crowds and watch this at the bar. McGregor returning will always be big time television.
GD took about five minutes to whip up this event poster, SMH
What a fucking horse shit poster.
I expect Conor TKO 1
So apparently Cerrone ain't getting as much red panty love as you would think for this headliner fight.
Grasso missed weight by over 3lbs and has been disqualified from fighting Gadelha.
Girl came in for the Randa Markos fight about 3 or 4 pounds over weight as well. May need to think of moving up a weight class.
Kelleher vs. Osbourne moved up to the main card.
Rogan calls the fight over twice and Greene fights out of it.
Rogan declares Greene safe, Greene taps immediately.
Didn't even mess up his hair. Sheesh.

Nice to see Roxy get a high profile win. They positioned her as a stepping stone and she defied them.
40 seconds? Crazy
Stephen A should be banned from analyzing the fight. I'm a big fan of Stephen A, but claiming Cerrone quit when he broke his face on McGregor's shoulder is messed up. Cerrone would never give up, he just ruined his facial structure due to his fighting style.
According to Meltzer this PPV had 2-million buys or roughly that amount of business.
Holm looked good but has no chance of beating Nunes, so not much to get excited about. The rest of the card was really lackluster. Good to see Roxy get a win but she does not belong on PPV. She might have the weakest strikes in UFC history.
Cerrone was much worse than I expected. Even though he was clearly picked by McGregor as a tune up, this was still shambolic. McGregor vs. Masvidal or vs. Gaethje is the way to go. I have no desire to see Khabib steamroll McGregor again supposing he beats Ferguson.
