Well, there's one person I've heard of on this card, but at five bucks a month, I'm in!

The main card is actually pretty good especially considering the usual fare we get on Brazilian cards.

Wooo this main event. I'm guessing Jose or Maia are the one dude Brian has heard of. Come for one of them, watch for Marlon.

Yep. Fuck, this is a good card. They have my $5 for another month.

Aldo, yeah.

But hey, I'm who UFC and ESPN wants, right? Someone vaguely familiar with their product who figures it's worth five bucks a month to give it a shot.

Does Moicano melt Aldo? He's a -135 favourite but this doesn't feel like a Hernandez/Cowboy type of fight where the vet uses experience and grit to undo a barely tested prospect. This feels like somebody winding down their career and in decline meeting somebody who's just about reaching their prime.

I worried more about the Stephens fight more than I worry about Moicano. I think Moicano is good and fairly consistent but I don't think Aldo has depreciated enough at least on offense to lose to someone who is a good submission grappler but only slightly above average in terms of striking prowess. I think it takes someone special like Holloway to put away Aldo in the manner that Holloway did. It would take Aldo getting super old between late July to now to really look out of sorts against Moicano.

Sarah Frota apparently got hit with a 40% purse fine for being over the strawweight limit by 7 pounds. The fight is still on.

Well, Ramos was right about Said not being Khabib. Probably all he was right about.

Jairzinho may be one dimensional but he is very good in that dimension.

Eduardo Herdy forgot he's reffing a UFC card and not a Meca Vale Tudo card from 15 years ago.

Anyway, Johnny Walker smoked poor Justin Ledet.

This has been a wild card so far. Not the best fights but a shitload of stuff happening.

Do Bronx should fight a ranked guy next. He has earned it.

I have a feeling that Maia might fight the Lawler/Askren winner.

Vintage Jose Aldo!
Johnny Walker is greatness.
Nice impressive victory for Maia
