Which fights are you looking forward to and what are your expectations?

I'm mostly looking forward to Jorge Masvidal vs. Ben Askren, probably because of all the trash talk from Ben, but mostly because Ben's last win wasn't well earned. I'd like to see his ass kicked.

I think Nunes v. Holm is gonna be an incredible fight. I really don't know what to expect.

Jones v. Santos should be good, I love watching Jones fight and Santos seems like a stronger adversary than Smith was.

I think Masvidal is gonna serve Askren some humble pie, unless the fight goes to the ground too quickly.

Sanchez v. Chiesa should be a really good fight too. Chiesa looked good in the last two fights I saw of his.

I disagree wrt Ben. His last win was most certainly legitimate, and earned. Was it stopped a bit early? Maybe.

Ever heard of Renner Gracie? Him and his brother go through a very convincing breakdown/analysis of that fight ending and basically explain that even though the stop was somewhat early, there's absolutely zero ways Robby would escape that bulldog choke and would have eventually either broke his jaw or be slept. So I don't think there should be that much controversy, tbh.

Anyway, I see Ben easily taking this fight. Can Jorge hit harder than Robby AND stop Ben from grabbing him? Highly doubtful. As soon as Ben gets the grapple, it's the beginning of the end of that fight. Might as well be Khabib.

Great bouts lined up, but theres an unbearably sour taste in my mouth. Money is the bottom line in UFC and in Boxing and it's heartbreaking. Get this multiple pop drug cheat off the main card. Sorry I have nothing else to contribute to this discussion.

I am MOST excited for Masvidal & Askren and I think it will go to Askren, but that is just a guess.

Justice served for what, exactly? I never knew lighthearted dad jokes were just causes for killing man on live pay-per-view in front of millions.

Ben's win against Robbie Lawler wasn't well earned so it was just to see someone to add an undisputed L to Ben's record.

Surely that wasn't Ben's fault though, it wasn't his decision to wave off the fight.
