I see what they were going for and its cool. Good concept, but I can see where it would cause confusion (Rousey wearing a McMann hoodie vs. Rousey/McMann 'sharing' the same hoodie and facing opponent directions (with McMann's direction indicating her wearing her own hoodie). Like an optical illusion of the young woman/old woman.

Makovsky/Sampo and Assuncao/Munhoz are much better fights than anything on the main card and Davis/Eye is a better fight than everything on the main card except for Ronda/McMann.


I would be pumped for Rory/Maia, but Rory's lost his killer instinct and has become a boring point fighter.

Main card still has a few fun fights.  I wonder how Rory MacDonald is going to look after that loss to Lawler.  It looks like he needs to leave Tristar because that camp's low-activity style has been killing a lot of fighters' lately.  


Whittaker/Thompson and Pyle/Waldburger look like fun fights at least.  


Prelims actually have some matchups I'm excited about like Makovsky/Sampo.

I'm guessing your comparison of Page is with Sterling.


Makovsky/Sampo and Assuncao/Munhoz are up there with Fili/Holloway at UFC 172 as the 3 fights I'm most looking forward to.


3 FOTY candidates fight there.

That poster is some first year graphic design work. Fucking lazy, like some bullshit you'd see on Deviantart

It isn't even that good. It looks like one of those hatchet jobs you'd get a guy on Craig's List to do for $20 bucks. UFC posters are usually horrible but this one takes the cake.

As if there was any doubt that we'll see another Ronda first round armbar.


The only reason Miesha got out of the first round was because Ronda wanted to prove she could strike (which she didn't do to good in) and because she disliked Miesha and wanted to punch her face (which she didn't do to good in either).
