Not a lot of star power on this one, but still some interesting fights.  There's one early prelim at 11:30 ET on ESPN+, then the TV prelims on the main ESPN channel, then the main card on local ABC channels.  If you have ESPN+, all three parts will be there, though.

Also, it's the debut of the new Venum uniforms.  The contract with Reebok ended at the end of last month.  The new Venum gear isn't anything earthshaking, but it does look better than the old ugly Reebok stuff.

Hmmm...looking at the graphic, it looks like they might have done away with the separate Early Prelim that's still listed on the UFC website and just moved the start time for ESPN to 11:30 instead of noon.  Same fight order, but starting a half hour earlier on ESPN.

I just noticed that today's event was sponsored by Trojan condoms.  Better than the old Condom Depot days, I guess, but still an odd thing for a card on the ABC broadcast network.

Well my power just came back on so maybe I can watch this. Typical morning in Northwest Florida, wake up to severe tornado warnings and insane wind blowing water in our back porch and blowing our deck chairs around.
 
2021-04-10 11:26:45 AM  
Anyone notice that the graphic indicates an 11:30pm start time?

That is correct. 11:30 Eastern

I've noticed that the past few times she's been on.

Da fark?!  I was psyched to hear they did away with the online pre prelims, but ESPN is still listed as noon start time and I'm not watching a fight right now!

It looks like they just separated that one fight on the bottom right by putting a little frame around it.  Not a very clear poster.

That build on Knight isn't good for MMA in my opinion, you gas out with all your big muscles.

Yes, but your mistake is in assuming that they're even trying to accomplish the same thing. Cruz and Cormier are relaying information in an entertaining fashion. Big John....wasn't....so I have a hard time believing that that was his goal! XD

Unfortunately, the internet has made me way too good at that. Thus, like every other asshole in the world, I'll just claim to "Calls 'em like I sees 'em" like it's a GOOD quality!

Poor DC! The first fight was probably way too short to be able to play with the telestrator!  It's cruel to force him to wait for his fix
 
2021-04-10 12:31:44 PM  
DC gets to use the telestrator, plus it's on wrestling!
 
2021-04-10 12:32:11 PM  
I just hope that Keith Peterson is a ref today so Cruz can get triggered.

Griffin in the early lead for Ugly Tattoo of the Night.  I can't even tell what most of that is.

It's a distinct style almost everyone is familiar with, but you're just used to seeing it in another medium: usually the toddler uses a crayon to scribble on a recently painted white wall

Aldana knew the round was about to end so he stuck in there. I like to see that because there are way too many fighters that tap out with a few seconds left in a round
