244, one of the biggest events of the year

The top eight fights are all between very highly ranked fighters and its not that people care about or respect the UFC rankings but it indicates a lot has been achieved by those fighters over the past couple years. Really glad Gillespie has a big fight after grinding in MMA for six years undefeated. Glad the 21 year old killer Shahbazyan is getting a fight with a tough vet too. The other big fights are self explanatory.

Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Darren Till

Corey Anderson vs. Johnny Walker

Vicente Luque vs. Stephen Thompson

Blagoy Ivanov vs. Derrick Lewis

Gregor Gillespie vs. Kevin Lee

Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jennifer Maia

Krzysztof Jotko vs. Edmen Shahbazyan

Andrei Arlovski vs. Jair Rozenstruik

Julio Arce vs. Hakeem Dawodu

Lyman Good vs. Chance Rencountre

Makwan Amirkhani vs. Shane Burgos</p>

I'm not gonna pretend to care about the Chookagian fight but there are a bunch of great fights on this card getting overshadowed by the Masvidal vs Diaz main event. The Gastelum, Walker, Thompson, Lewis, and Gillespie fights could all headline Fight Nights. As for Shahbazyan... how many 21 year olds do you know that are already 3-0 in the UFC? Dawodu has also been climbing the ranks and can be pretty damn exciting, 10-1-1 in the UFC/WSOF.

don't want to jinx it but this card look

fucking amazing

Top 3 look great

Anderson Walker is what I'm looking most forward to honestly. Walker is just hype machine.

I think it looks like a very good card, especially for the 2019 version of the ufc. Most cards now have 1-2 good fights and some cards have 0. This one has 5-7 depending on what you classify as good. 

Looking forward to a vintage Lyman Good performance.

Jones right nostril -

OP forgot to mention the main event is a title match. 

Lol - probably because he didnt want to cheapen the event!

Great card

This is super stacked.  Has something for the newer fans and older fans.

Jon Jones has some really good potential opponents coming up. Dominick Reyes, Johnny Walker, Aleksandar Rakic etc

While neither man has looked like the next Aldo, Amirikhani (3-1 in UFC) is coming off a huge sub win over Fishgold while Burgos (5-1 in UFC) is coming off a win over Cub Swanson.

This is a bigger fight for the division than it seems at a glance.

Former Bellator champ Lyman Good (20-5) was never finished in his entire career until he ran into Maia in his last fight. Has a couple KO wins in the UFC and is fighting on this card as well.

Its also pretty much guaranteed that the Chookagian vs Maia winner will be getting the next title shot vs the best P4P fighter in all of WMMA, Shevchenko.

As good as 244 is... look how weak 243 is, these two fights are on the PPV! That main event, the venue and the Australian support will make it one of the most attended UFC's in MMA history but what a dogshit PPV.
