    I can't wait
    I don't want either man to lose in the main
    That makes it exciting

    But this is the biggest card since GSP/Bisping in MMA & it just doesn't feel like it yet.

    No matter who wins the two main events, I'll be happy.
    For fun, I'll say Cormier wins on an early stoppage and Ortega submits Holloway really really quickly.

    Fuck it's annoying when there's actually 2 decent fights on Shitpass, but that shows how stacked this card is.

    All four in the main and co-main are really likable. Ortega will blow up to legit superstar status if he beats Max. That dude has it all...looks, other talents, charitable, great story, and he’s a killer.

    I have been trying to figure out which fight I’m most excited for, and I have come to the conclusion that the answer is: all of them. Holy crap @ this card! Not the biggest names top to bottom, but some really really intriguing fights from a match-up perspective. Dream card for MMA fans.

    Cool
    MMA needs a big card that delivers.
    This can certainly be it.
    I'm still in the mindset that this won't break 500k in buys and that says a lot about MMA in 2018 sadly

    I'm most excited for Holloway vs Ortega. I just feel like it's Brian's time.
