Lineup for UFC 296:
Leon Edwards (c) vs. Colby Covington
Alexandre Pantoja (c) vs. Brandon Royval
Stephen Thompson vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov
Paddy Pimblett vs. Tony Ferguson
I hope El Cucuy sleeps 'em!
Why are they still giving Tony fights? How many losses in a row does he have? I’m pretty sure it’s a UFC record by now
If he loses to Paddy, they will cut him, IMO
Lol if he wins! I’ll be rooting for him to beat fattie
IMO he had the black guy dead to rights before the intentional eye gouge. Joke just may be on WME with this one.
hope he batters Paddy, wins FOTN and retires
Good payday to retire on. He is not winning though.
Has he caught BJ yet?
This fight is for all the marbles.
BJ went 7 in a row and Tony is at 6.
Love them both but both definitely stayed too long. At least BJ got his huge fights, Tony’s sadly never worked out.
I don’t think Paddy is ready for that step up, even against Tony’s ghost.
I think Tony beats Pimble…
Pimblett is embarrassing, runs from a rematch with Gordon or a fight with Dober…but signs to fight a 40 yr old Tony on a 6 fight losing skid.
I have no interest in seeing Tony fight. He is the walking definition of CTE
This fight makes no sense but should be a fun one anyway
I defended Paddy in the past …but I don’t see him winning this one. I just think Tony does what Tony does best. Figures it out in a weird way, only taken him way too many losses but I have a feeling he gets the T/KO here.
We’ll soon see if Scousers get knocked out.
