Looking forward to this one. The main event especially Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje. Lightweight's been the best and deepest weight class in MMA for over a decade. Oliveira has the UFC record for most submission wins with 15 and finishes at 18. Out of his 32 wins, 29 by finish. What a record. Fancy Oliveira by submission in round 3. Thug Rose by decision getting revenge on her defeat to Esparza.

I'm uncomfortable with Michael Chandler vs. Tony Ferguson with Ferguson losing three straight and taking one of the worst beatings ever to Gaethje. Michael Chandler is one of the hardest hitters in the division. Has anyone had a tougher first four fights in the UFC than Chandler? Hooker, Oliveira, Gaethje and now Ferguson. Chandler by TKO in R2. I'd rather not see Cerrone, Lauzon and Shogun fight again. Cerrone's lost his last 6 fights, one turned to a no contest. Rua by TKO in R2 and same for Lauzon.

Ending the early prelims right with a highlight reel left hook from Fialho that put Van Camp's lights out. Gnarly looking stuff.
