McGregor vs Alvarez
Tyron Woodley vs Wonderboy
Joanna vs Karolina
Weidman vs Romero
Tate vs Pennington
Frankie Edgar vs Jeremy Stephens
Nurmagomedov vs Michael Johnson

And some more

Personally I quite look forward to Woodley's game also Joanna vs Karolina, and UFC 205 > 200

Yep, this is potentially the greatest card ever. You'll never see so many title fights, so many former champions and so many elite fighters on one card again. Normally, I have a pretty confident guess at what's going to happen in half the fights on a card or more but with this one the fights are really tough to predict. I'm really hype for this and that it's happening in MSG for the first time ever just adds to the historic feel of the whole event. I'll add this random bit of over analysis though; I caught two or three intercepting knees during Mcgregor sparring session clips which could easily be nothing...but they chewed up Eddie in his last loss to Donald Cerrone. It's a strike I've never seen Conor use, but it'd be a really smart way to control distance, so if Mac is using 'em they'd be an unexpected game changer. Then again, even without the knees, it should come down to his accuracy and speed vs Eddies grappling and distance closing.

I will forget the Knicks for a minute and watch this main card at the moment, onto Tate now.

That Romero knee shot is freaky. Wow. Bisping may probably lose to this guy.

Yup, and she thinks it is about time to pass the torch.

It should be a KO instead of TKO, maybe the ref doesn't get that there is no way for Weidman to come back from this.

If soccer and football players are concerned about concussion, how about this kind of injury?

Pretty much why I respect hockey players, they get a puck straight to the cheek, get stitched up and enters back on the ice right after

Joanna is built like a steel, and talks about 7-time Muay Thai champ, if Karolina cannot stop her I doubt any woman can stop her in this division.

Good five round fight, and Joanna survives from round 4 hit, it is nearly a critical hit.

She sure looked unstoppable after she beat Claudia Ghadelia in fight 2.
