Let's fucking go Mizuki Inoue. I don't remember Daniel Rodriguez if I've seen him fight. He beat Tim Means so probably seen him just no recollection. Sato is pretty fun though.

Prachnio/Rodriguez being on a main card with only four fights is hella sad.

I don't think the main card is finished. Maybe it is, but Tapology lists the Agapova/Dodson fight on the main card and UFC.com doesn't. I'm guessing it will be a 5 or 6 fight main card per usual, and they haven't finalized it yet.

this card looks like it has negative star power. #5 Munhoz vs Edgar making his BW debut is the only thing remotely close. it's an intriguing enough matchup, but to headline a card with nothing else? yikes. unless there's a huge contingent of OSP fans i don't know about. 🤣

Yeah, I was kind of shocked this was an ESPN card and not ESPN+. Is Frankie Edgar a draw in 2020 after getting bounced around a bunch the past few years? I feel like he's a loss away from retirement. Or at least I hope he is. I don't need to see a washed Edgar get slept four times in a row before he figures it out.

Same and I'm a big fan of Frankie Edgar. Something that he's making his Bantamweight bow now. However fighters think about moving up or down a weight class as a fresh start. When the Answer was robbed in his second fight to Benson Henderson for the UFC Lightweight Championship and was moving a weight class, we thought it would be Bantamweight not Featherweight.

I feel like Edgar is a more talented, determined, and less risk averse Benson Henderson (who fell off a cliff). Too many times has he tried to squeak out a victory on points and been burned then bitched about it. He's fine. I'm not much of a fan. Maybe that's harsh but I still don't want to see a dude suffer long term serious health problems from holding on too long and not figuring out the sport has moved on.

Well, since you follow the NBA, you know all the regular bubble games are over. TNT has the first two games on Saturday, then ESPN has one, and the last game is on ABC.'

BTW this card was originally Yoel Romero vs. Uriah Hall and Waterson vs. Hill (along w/ OSP vs. his original opponent Shamil Gazmatov). They also tried to get Woodley vs. Covington on this card but that got made for later. Then, Romero got hurt. Waterson vs. Hill got moved to 9/12. I believe the next fight up was Munhoz vs. Edgar. So the card will at least have a pretty good lead in of Rockets vs. Thunder on ESPN.
