Here we go again.

Yeah, not a lot of star power on this card, so it's a big bowl of meh if you need to know who all the fighters are to give a crap. Suit yourself.

But: In 7 of the 11 matchups both fighters have finished at least 70% of their wins; 3 fights have one fighter who finishes at least 70%; and only one involves 2 guys who don't mind going to the scorecards.

So: Just Bleed Index is well above average for this card. If you're looking for fun violence, this card has the potential to deliver.

Shocker: Both chicks on the card have finished more than 70% of their pro fights.

Potential bonus winners in these matchups between very high-percentage finishers:

  • Roman Dolidze vs. John Allan Arte (only 2 decisions in 25 combined fights)
  • Jimmy Flick vs. Cody Durden (only 5 decisions in 34 combined fights)
  • Ilia Topuria vs. Damon Jackson (only 2 decisions in 31 combined fights)

Hahaha “just bleed index” I like that. Someone should throw together an actual like statistical way to determine that “just bleed index” for every low star power card

Here we go again. Some dipshit promoting the lowest common denominator, blood, as a compelling reason to watch the UFC.


Star power is not the biggest aspect I'm disappointed with. The generic fighting that is coming to dominate is really losing my attention. For that reason, I've been enjoying the influx of Russian fighters.


Lately I've been enjoying all the overseas MMA events just because their fighters are coming from different backgrounds and I'm seeing some cool stuff going on. And I don't know any of those guys, so it's not a star power issue.

I've really come to appreciate these lacklustre cards, especially at this time of year. I have something to do if I'm hanging around the house, yet I don't feel obligated to ditch my wife on her Saturday night plans every week because there are fights I don't want to miss. With that said, I was pretty clear with her this morning that she can go ahead and plan her own Netflix selection tonight, as I'll be in the shack watching fights..... forty bucks on Hermansson parlayed with the Vikings tomorrow. 

Not to mention, and more importantly.... the Errol Spence Jr vs Danny Garcia fight tonight. Hell, it's almost time to get out and do my beer run!

Montana De La Rosa vs. Taila Santos has been scrapped. another covid +

Neat fight on the card is Matt Wiman vs. Jordan Leavitt

Did the Landwehr fight get srapped too?


I don't see it at tapology. They have a nine fight card posted and are by far the most trusted source in MMA cards on the web.
