Looking forward to this particularly the main event as Lightweight is the best weight class since 2010. The winner has a shot at Fighter of the Year but for Dustin Poirier, depends on the weight you give two wins over Conor McGregor as he's not what he was. Be interesting to see how Cody Garbrandt looks at Flyweight. The Bantamweight GOAT Dominick Cruz should be on the main card.

i don't say this to diminish Cruz, because i agree that he is one of, if not THE, BW GOAT.  but i find it weird that Cruz never fought the dominant champion before him, Miguel Torres. And he never fought the guy who claimed the throne when Cruz was out injured, Renan Barao. (sidenote, i was really looking forward to Marlon Moraes joining the UFC and facing off against both Cruz and Barao- neither of which happened!) Again, i fully believe that Cruz would beat all of those guys, but it's just one of the oddities of this sport. 

back on topic, this looks like a damn good card. looking forward to it!

It's a shame some fights never happen like those you bring up.
