Good to see Ngannou at an American gym because he has too much upside to be at some random gym in France.

There will be no early weigh ins for this show.

Correction: The early weigh ins are going on right now, but there will be no ceremonial weigh ins (the one streaming on Youtube/UFC.tv).

...so...he got tested and smoked a blunt?

That looks to be a rolled up piece of either toilet paper or paper towel he found in the fighter hotel. He's joking, VileOne.

They should bring back Twitter bonuses and give Derrick Lewis all of them.

This Yoder/Kish fight has been 90% scrambles and is a blast to watch. Kish is the much more physical fighter but Yoder has the edge technique-wise on the ground.

Gian Villante is one sloppy fighter.  

Is he really the dude we're going to call sloppy in that fight when his opponent was throwing punches from his knees? Safarov was coming from the Jersey pine barrens with some of those haymakers. Villante's strikes were not pretty, but his technique was clean enough to put Safarov out of the fight.

Fun brawl though for what it was.

Anderson needs more performances like this. He's clearly physically gifted, but he needs aggression after solidifying the takedowns. He didn't fuck around in the second round and was able to get O'Connell out of there like he needed to.

That was...that was very scary.

Why would anyone sign up to fight Ngannou at this point?

That was rad. He just yanked that man's arm from its socket.

It's easy to have performances like that when you are fighting someone like Sean O'Connell who was lucky to have a spot on the roster at all.  

It's time to throw Francis Ngannou in there with a legit heavyweight.  He's looked fantastic so far and it's great to have a fresh, rising contender at heavyweight, but let's see how he fights against someone in there who has fought legit competition.
