Man I am hyped for this card. Some real crackerjacks on this one, especially on the women’s side.

In. War Rose.

I like this card.

Is this main card stacked?

I think so.

I know it’s quite the long shot but a parlay with rose and andrade pays +1370 with the current odds. Rose is a smart fighter and I will be throwing a little something on her. Andrade does have avenues to victory here. Ko power and the ability to time her takedowns well. Not suggesting anyone take it but in my mind it’s worth a shot.

I’m excited !!! The fighters tonight are gonna be amped with a full crowd back. Say what you want about Dana and UFC but they have paved the way for live sports through this pandemic.



Actually looking forward to the females these chicks can fucking fight. Good card.



One crowd energy is crazy

Two this fight is great

1st time seeing these Venum outfits, they look good.

Are they amplifying the crowd more than they used to? They seem loud as hell considering the size.

I noticed some volume control of it in play during transitions

I think they are better, but too similar to each other - like a uniform.

It would be better if they added more unique options for individual fighters.

Any idea what gear carne asada is on? That bacne along with her build is hella sus

Great first fight!
