This one is a mostly a mix of older mid-level folks and newer unknowns.  In other words, a COVID fight night.  Since it's entirely on ESPN+, it starts earlier than the PPV schedule, with prelims at 5 PM ET and the main card at 8 PM ET.  Also, there were a few fights that dropped off during fight week, so as I post this there are ten fights on the card.  As it sits now, there are four prelims scheduled in the three hours leading up to the main card, so expect plenty of filler (unless they push the start time back to a bit later).

We'll see how the fights turn out.  The main event of Bigi Boy vs Gane has a good chance of a big KO.

In other MMA news, Zuluzinho had a fight earlier this week in Russia.  https://twitter.com/Delisket​o/status/1​364266122426654723

Despite the highlight above, he lost by decision.  Fedor destroyed him in Pride back in 2005, and at 42, he hasn't gotten better in 2021.

Good.  They did change the start time for the prelims to 6 PM ET, so there won't be as much filler.
 
2021-02-27 11:17:12 AM  
I gotta remember this one in the afternoon. Hard to think about what's going on a 4 pm in the best time zone, lol

Crap.  Another fight dropped off.  Angela Hill vs Ashley Yoder was pulled because one of Yoder's cornermen tested positive for COVID.  Now we're down to nine fights. According to the article, they're leaving the start times the same at 6 PM ET for prelims and 8 PM for the main card.  They're leaving the four fights on the prelims and shrinking the main card from six fights to five, so maybe they'll just end things earlier instead of adding filler.  https://www.bloodyelbow.com/​2021/2/27/​22304888/angela-hill-vs-ashley-yoder-p​ulled-from-ufc-vegas-20-mma-news

Oh, and in unrelated stuff, there's this horrible late stoppage from UWC 25 in Tijuana last night.  The ref should never be allowed in a cage again.  https://twitter.com/ChillemDa​foe/statu​s/1365459042114695177

FFFFFFFFFfark...
I'm so self centered, I think this is the doing of MY shiatty luck!  I haven't been sleeping, my eyes are blinking independently, I'm on a shiat tonne of drugs, and now it's delayed!

Maybe flicking someone else's ear will help?  Hey cam, ya watch hockey? xP

For real, though, FFFFU Crew, I'm hoping they managed to slim down the whole event and it's pretty well balanced, lest I pass the fark out!
 
2021-02-27 6:01:05 PM  
OK.  Just got back from the store with a steak to put on around main card time, walked the dog, and watching the Kimbo promo with "live event will begin shortly".  Ready for violence

Prelims are live
 
2021-02-27 6:01:44 PM  
ESPN+ seen mumbling a prayer that all of tonight's fights go the full 15 minutes.
 
2021-02-27 6:03:54 PM  
oh, and I haven't checked today, but the rumor last night was Thug Rose vs Weili was close to being signed for UFC 261 in late April
 
2021-02-27 6:05:31 PM  
fark yeah!  Need Philly Boy Felder behind the desk in case we have another case of "back spasms" (I personally think that guy was cowed by the choice of walkout music and quit). Paul is likely wearing his cup already!

Is there a limit where they won't let them fight if one misses weight?

Looked like he was leaking at the end but espn cut away

Jacoby was in trouble at the end

There's certainly gotta be one where the commission can't reasonably license a fight, but I don't know if it is consistent from commission to commission
 
2021-02-27 6:19:00 PM  
Guess it was just adds on the mat

Depends on the commission, who can just scratch the fight if they see it as excessive, but usually decided by the opponent.  He can turn down the fight if he wants if the other fighter misses weight.

Snaps: Guess it was just adds on the mat


They did say he split his nose at the end.

Thanks for the answers, as usual

10-9 Jacoby  19-19

Grishin is slowing down but still dangerous

Jacoby waved the ref off when he wanted to stop it, so I guess, nonuts?

Hey Mike, if they knock down the hospital you were born in, were you not born there?
 
2021-02-27 6:31:36 PM  
Close.  I have it 10-9 Grishin.  29-28 Grishin.

I hope the judges disagree.  I hate it when people who miss weight that badly win.
 
2021-02-27 6:31:39 PM  
I'm biased but do you fellas think we just watched a Light Heavyweight beat a small Heavyweight?
 
2021-02-27 6:32:12 PM

Yeah, I guess I won't count it on the running tally

Definitely surprised that it was unanimous.

Second on the red sandals!  They don't even have to be UFC branded for me, they just seem like they'd be harder to lose as it seems I have a talent to do that with sandals...

Lots of spinning shiat!

Red is also the fastest color

Conundrum:  Got a pretty solid 1080p stream that only buffered for a second or two twice the last fight, but for some reason Kodi was updating something so now I've got a small "Working..." overlay with a spinning circle that seems to have made itself permanent.  Usually I'd be able to ignore it, but it keeps stealing the attention of my inomnomaniac mind...

This one and a half legged man could use the speed boost (or three legged with the cane?)!  But you just reminded me that the insurance would likely be HELL!
