So far it looks like all thirteen fights are still on.  It looks like a pretty good card, especially in the age of quarantine.  Masvidal got the shot on short notice when Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID.  Plans are for Burns to face the winner of Usman/Masvidal for the title as soon as possible.  Street Jesus is an underdog, especially stepping in on short notice, but it should still be a fun fight.

Besides the three title fights, Namajunas vs Andrade II should be good.  Rose was winning the first time until the slam KO came out of nowhere, and an impressive win tonight puts her right back in the title picture.

There are a fair number of mostly unknown fighters further down the card, but a few of the matchups look pretty good.

In other MMA news, to no one's surprise, Mike Perry got into a fight in a restaurant, knocked out some old guy and now has to go to rehab.

Also, the UFC signed with Venum to replace Reebok starting in April.  Bye-bye ugly soccer uniforms (and Hello ugly MMA gear?)

former UFC fighter Boston Salmon catches an illegal knee to the head at LFA 84 tonight.  DQ of course.  https://twitter.com/UFCFight​Pass/statu​s/1281770966377467905

I think this should be a fun card.

Venum will probably be even uglier than Reebok - bet.

Greets, Fellow Fark Fight Fans!***

I got a homey rolling through eventually, but I'll stick around until he gets here.  All set for some kickass steak fajitas and, of course, waaaaay two many beers for just two guys chillin'.

Half case each of Stella, Beck's, and Red Stripe (SUNSHINE!)

Finally found the early prelims, just in time for the first fight.

Same here - my Toshiba FireTV was being a biatch with Kodi hanging but I was gonna end up with the fights on the 39" and vidja games on the 55" anyway (separate, square FireTV on the 39").  Looks like I may have to cave and upgrade Kodi on the Toshiba because I think it's still running 18.1!

BOINK!

I guess my beer choices weren't up to snuff but I'll bite the bullet and enjoy getting drunk on them anyway. xP

In case I get pulled away earlier than expected, I wanted to leave this conversation hand grenade:

I was watching ESPN's runup to 251 and Andrade was saying she was practicing her...half powerbomb?? in case she gets the opportunity again.  While everyone seems to be in agreement that this wasn't spiking because Thug Rose was going for that wrist sub (know the name but ain't gonna try to spell it).  Anyway, is it wise for Andrade to admit to wanting to do it again or do the UFC's laughably vague rules make everything but an actual pile driver (that requires a willing opponent like in Testosterone Opera) legal?  Discuss!  I'll eventually read this whole thread late night after the event

Currently I'm chromecasting from my computer to a 65 inch TV.  Image is acceptable, but not great.  Once it goes to the TV prelims, I can get a more direct signal and the quality will be better.

missed the first part of the round because my Domino's order arrived, but got back in time to catch the knockout

KO
 
2020-07-11 6:43:50 PM  
Great fight!  Should have doubled down after rd. 1.  I don't know why Bisping had Day winning rd. 1 with just the knockdown.  Grant was ahead the rest of that and got a takedown.

Well in order!

Also, DAMN that's a KO.

Dog wants my boneless buffalo wings.  given the spices, I think i'll make him settle for a few bites of my steak and cheese sub when I get to that.

I live in Buffalo and you know what? Domino's boneless wings aren't bad. Their regular wings are breaded and thus an abomination.

Also here's my setup

Are you trying to turn this thread into fights plus tech AND food porn?  Because this is how that is accomplished...Steak Fajitas are a'comin' when it switches over to ESPN!

I've been surprised by the number of people all week who saw the cage on the beach on Fight Island and insisted that the fights would happen there, no matter how many times the UFC said that the outside cage was for press appearances and the fights would be indoors.

It would be cool to see the outside fight though

Melo is a flyweight with heavyweight thighs.  Thus, 141 pounds.

10-9 Rosa with a 10-8 probably on the table.  20-18

By far Melo's best round.  10-9 Rosa, though.  30-27

Wow, even UFC is throwing shade at the US government.

I'm not real big on Aldo getting the bantamweight title shot over a few other contenders, but he's still dangerous early in the fight and it wouldn't be a big shock to see him get that second title tonight.
 
2020-07-11 7:19:09 PM  
Paiva looks skeletal in the promo picture
 
2020-07-11 7:26:33 PM  
nice shovel uppercut
 
2020-07-11 7:29:53 PM  
Paiva 10-9. But does it even matter if he didn't make weight?
