I appreciate the weekly fights even if the cards are filled with people I never heard of.  I also appreciate the lack of politics on the ufc from the organization.

Life after the pandemic was depressing and having fights on went a long way to helping me return to a sense of normalcy,  if just for a few hours

Card is decent. 

I really like sandhagen but i dont think he has much of a chance here. 

Edson destroys amirkhani in a just universe. 

Makwan is a super cool guy. Comes off as a funny, down to earth guy. He was the one I heard about the bad dog from. Haha. Funny guy. I don't see how he beats Edson.. But I hope he does.
