Convince me to watch the card tonight.

(I have 5 monitors plus a laptop so I can watch this UFC, NBA & NHL all at the same time)

But have doubts this will be entertaining enough at all.

Flexing.

Vannata vs Green is almost guaranteed action. Luque is fun to watch. Calderwood are fighting to keep her spot as next in line for Valentina and the main-event should be great action aswell until one gets knocked out. Not a stacked fight card, but at least 3 fights i wont miss. Vannata vs Green, Luque vs Brown and the main-event - Brunson vs Edmen.

Impressive performance by Martinez. This is a fight where you would've liked to see the corner of Saenz stop the fight between 2nd and 3rd round. Knocked down 3 or 4 times in the 2nd and wobbly coming out to the 3rd.

So Giles fainted just before the walkouts and his fight with Holland is scrabbed. 8 fights card now. Vannata vs Green, should be FOTN if it's as good as the first one.

Easily the best fight on the card this far. Clear win for Green.

Always exciting when Luque fights. He gives damage and takes a whole lot of it aswell :lol:

Maia outclassed Calderwood both on the feet and on the ground.

As someone with no wrestling experience or knowledge I really enjoy watching submission finishes like that. I still don’t understand (or miss) a lot of the subtle adjustments.

So how come this is 3 rounds? What’s the criteria to decide between 3 and 5?

Apparently it was meant to be the co-main, so they prob trained for a 3 round fight.

The only fighters who beats Brunson are the elite. 17 fights in the UFC, 12-5. Lost to Yoel, Whittaker, Silva, Jacare and Adesanya. Brunson is the 'gatekeeper' to the elite in the division. Edmen isn't there yet, but he's still young.
