Seems like a Wednesday card is an odd choice right now. Especially since I feel like there's been almost zero advertising for this.

They are playing catch up. They owe ESPN a certain number of shows a year and being shut down for six weeks due to corona does not change that.

Dober vs Hernandez is the co-main in my mind. Dober has big power and has some impressive KOs the past few years. He has also been winning a lot of fights lately. Same for Hernandez, entered the UFC with a big KO of Dariush and just beat Trinaldo.

Sure this one could end in the 1st but I think its likely its a FOTN war.

You think people want to see to half naked men rolling on the ground like homosexuals on a Wednesday night?

Robersons cut was fucked up and he had to go to the hospital.

Who wants fights during the week? I do I do.

Not gonna lie... everytime I now watch an Arlovski fight I'm like "what the fuck am I doing watching Arlovski fight in 2020"? Its like Groundhog Day, just don't have the special feeling of watching other old HWs like Fedor and Crocop, it feels sick and twisted. Maybe its Aniks voice and the Reebok gear.

Is there an alternative way to watch without ESPN plus?

Too bad that fight is canceled. Would not complain if it was the Moras fight.
