It's a rare daytime pay-per-view.

The card looks pretty good, and the top few fights should be a lot of fun.

As of now (the evening before the fights), all twelve fights are still on.  Weigh ins are done, and Khabib looked like he had a tough cut (and there was some controversy with the scale, but officially he was on weight).  Further down the card Alex Oliveira weighed in at 173 for a fight at 170 and was fined 20% of his pay, and Joel Alvarez weighed 159.5 for a fight at 155 and forfeits 30% of his pay.

Early prelims on Fight Pass at 11 AM ET
Prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+ at noon ET
PPV main card at 2 PM ET

There's always a chance something will change by morning, but for now this is the lineup:

Oh, and three backup fighters also made weight, just in case someone drops off at the last minute, including Michael Chandler who can step in on the main event if Khabib or Gaethje get scratched.

And while he can't get tomorrow's Ugly Tattoo of the Night Bonus, this guy fought Josh Barnett in KSW earlier today:

Don't recognize the kanji, hopefully it translates as "unemployable".

Looks like there were no changes to the lineup overnight

I would think Khabib wins given his time off but man, how many times has a guy like him gotten caught looking ahead and getting KOed in round 2. Just feels like a fight id worry on betting on for that reason

Yeah, I picked Khabib, but the chance of Gaethje clipping him early is there, especially if he can avoid the first few takedown attempts.

Kimura thinks it's too damn early for fights.

Ufc and coffee is a strange mix

Gooooooooooooo mornin', VietFFFFU!!!
To hell with your dog, man, I think it's too early...
I'm not on the West Coast, I just never manage to fall asleep until dawn(ish), so I just feel like one of those dude that gets super into Premier League.  Don't get me wrong, I love me some footy, but only nation vs nation - the purest form of soccer.

Just woke up about an hour ago, and I'm sitting down to watch UFC. Weird.

He's gonna blow out his arms if he doesn't get the tap

Fark!  It's too early to math right, I'm not that fat anymore!

And the tap
 
2020-10-24 11:15:58 AM  
Alvarez really commits to those subs

Wait, the fight JUST started for me and I see no indication it's going to the ground - what are you watching?
 
2020-10-24 11:17:01 AM  
OK, I'm really far behind (damn, it was a beautiful stream) but alas, the hunt continues...

Yeah, I'm 6'2 and was a superheavyweight two years ago.  Middleweight now, and not going down any lower.

Just finished for me....time to find a new stream....

Also, it's buggin the hell outta me, but for anyone that cares, for all the Eastern European fighters with wonky last names, you'll almost never be wrong accenting the SECOND syllable in their long last names:  ya-KOV-lev not YA-kovlev

Meh, the more I say it, this may be one of the exceptions

Never gets old seeing Khabib choke out McGregor
 
2020-10-24 11:25:36 AM  
I've been spoiled the past month, first stream rock solid and don't change the whole night.

Could some good farker let me know exactly when the next fight starts for them?

I thought most fighters TRY to stink in order to throw off their opponents, especially if they're grapplers/sub specialists

Believe you me, the Slavic diet can induce a powerful funk that you can make yourself dizzy with!

Since all of FFFFU seems to be sipping coffee whilst watching these fights, what's the local time on Fight Island?  I wonder how much it's messing with the fighters, too...

The cut was really bad, and was only going to get far worse.
