Hoping for more brutal KO's by Luque and Felder and no injuries for Cain. :angel:

Lots of WMMA to skip on this one, too!
There can only be one...

I got Francis via uppercuttn Cain over the Wall.. too soon?

Lookn forward to Kron's debut.. 2nd rd sub :thunder:

No possible way this card can be any less exciting than last wks spar fest

Holtz vs Lentz & Luque vs Heybarberena should be straight slugfests :tup:

This card had some solid match ups. If Cain comes back big he will be right back at the top of the division. HW needs him back so bad. I would love to see Dana offer him millions to fight DC. Some fuck you money that they can't turn down. :cash: :moneybag:

Cain should beat Ngannou 8/10 times, but, those other 2 almost outweigh the 8, ya know?

Vick is crafty against aggressive fighters when he utilizes that jab. I hope I’m wrong, but, I gotta go with Vick.

Hoping that Luque can continue that streak of homicidal octagon victories, but, I have a feeling that Barberena has a good beard on him. Guess we’ll see!

Cain was one of the first fighters i became a fan of. I wanted to get brown pride tatted on me becauase of him. Being a young 18 or 19 year old beaner seeing a relatively short mexican beat down giants like lesnar and bigfoot. It was something special to me.

But im pretty sure hes gonna get kod. Cain made his name on cardio that no one could match bit he had by no means an infinite tank. He himself would tire just not as badly as his opppnents.

At his age with his history... Especialy a history pf getting clipped once or twice per fight... Ngannou is the wrong man at the wrong time.

Ill sigbet anyone

The beautiful thing about this heavyweight matchup is Ngannou has almost nothing on the ground and Velasquez has been injury prone anf even his chin and cardio are suspect now. Not much chance it goes 3 rounds let alone five.

So much wmma hate in this thread, but 5 of you unamerican bastards voted for women.

Cain will be known as 6 feet below sea level cain after ngannou.

Felder gonna beat Vick with some spinning shit, after giving a recap of each strike throughout the fight. He might even give Vick the mic for a post defeat interview
