"If Tony wins this fight, he will have defended his interim title more than the last 5 undisputed lightweight champions defended their title each."

Wait just a god damn minute...

Luque-Price is on the early preliminary card but Greg Hardy vs some rando is on the PPV? I REALLY hate that the UFC is trying so damn hard to make that POS happen. Luque-Price 100% belongs on the main card over that **** show of a fight. I understand putting Cowboy-Pettis on ESPN to get viewers but burying what could be the best fight of the night on the early prelims is ******* stupid.

Could not agree more.

Jeremy Stephens missed weight by 4.5 lbs 

Everybody else has made weight. 

Francis is the only left that hasn't weighed in.

Anyone betting on these fights? Cooking up a parlay I think i might go Cejudo, Francis, and u2.5 in the gaethje Ferguson fight.

I am, and I'm pretty heavy on Jacare and Cruz. Also like Pettis and sprinkle in a few parlays with finishes in Luque/Price, Francis/Jair, Tony/Gaethje.

Not necessarily "betting" like you guys are but I did the $20 entry on Draft Kings with a 6 man lineup. 

Went with De Castro, Kattar, Luque, Gaethje, Cejudo, Pettis

Good God that’s sad

Also if 2020 has its way(assuming the fight actually happens) then Tony will lose and I’ll be really sad

Beekay you’ve followed this sport way more than me. You know better than to be surprised by this. For Gods sake CM Punk was on the main card

Isn’t that part of why he’s on the main card though? Like people wanna see him get KTFO! Isnt that partly why Floyds fights are so huge, he does have a massive following but people wanna see him lose so badly too. 

I agree 100% that its so stupid he’s there but people wanna see him get finished

I don't think that's the reasoning whatsoever, in regards to how the UFC is pushing Hardy. He had NO business whatsoever being in a fight with someone like Volkov this quickly. The UFC is pushing him because he's a HW knockout artist, not because they want him on PPV to get KO'd.

Arent most HWs considered KO artists though? I think they’ll keep him on the main card going forward for a few more fights win or lose

Do you consider DC and Stipe knockout artists or full blown MMA fighters? Same with Reem. Same with Cain. Same with Brock. Werdum. Blaydes. JDS.

The only notable pure KO artists, to me, are Ngannou, Lewis and Rozenstruik.
