It looks to be a fairly typical Fight Night card.  A few matchups look pretty interesting, though.

There are some other things going on as well.

At 2 PM ET, there is boxing from Dubai, with Floyd Mayweather in the main event and Anderson Silva in the co-main.

Ponzinibbio and Pereira look like sketch artist drawings from two different eyewitnesses describing the same guy

This should be a fun card.  I'm going for underdogs.

The boxing from Dubai has been moving at a snail's pace.  A bit ago they were interviewing Instagram "influencers", then they were talking about Floyd spending bags of cash at the stores in Dubai.   Now they're into the same set of commercials they show every break.  Still waiting for Anderson Silva to come out.

MMA Series was OK.
Boxing is still ongoing, but they've been killing time for about 45 minutes waiting on the Silva fight

Hey homey and a good afternoon to you, too!  That's some impressive timing as the very first fighter is walking out.  Did your ol' trick knee tell you or is just plain experience? ;D

I'm looking forward to Anderson Silva, but I don't know the guy he's fighting.  I assume Mayweather has set himself up with a can.

Hughes is playing to her fight plan, and it's working.

First nominee for Ugly Tattoo of the Night.  Claws coming out if the chest is a strong early contender.

"Chase Hooper" sounds like the main character of a failed 70s buddy cop show to me....

Probably partnered with someone named something like Delvecio.  Big Aviator shades, big 'staches, big curly fros, constantly chasing people on foot down the same NYC street from different directions, avoiding all sorts of empty box factory inventories, fruit carts, and glass windows (y'know - the famous boxes, fruit, and glass district).  My brain is already  currently formulating the wild rock/funk intro music, so next time this kid fights, can someone please remind me that I made all this up?

good call, ref


I wouldn't have minded a point as well, but it's a start

Somewhere between an hour and 90 minutes since the last fight, Silva is finally walking out

10-9 Hooper   20-18
 
2022-05-21 5:01:21 PM  
Fun fight so far.  I think I gotta give both to Chase but judges may split them 19-19
 
2022-05-21 5:01:39 PM  
Jesus.

Rolling on the mat with Hooper would be like wearing an octopus.

Hughes and Hooper put up a sh*t ton of points for their fights.  140 and 120.  Damn.

Silva just knocked Machado down at the end of the 5th round.  6th round starting.

Hematoma of the Night so far on Morales' shin.
