I'm still pumped for this card. I agree it may not be worth as much PPV money now but I think it's still gonna be a great event.
All the main card fights are interesting to me...
TJ vs Soto - Interesting because of the last day replacement and will most likely either be a finish or domination for TJ or Soto will shock the world and win or do better than everyone thought he would
Castillo vs Ferguson - Great style match-up, gonna be awesome to see who can implement their gameplan. Both have also been looking really good lately and coming off KO's
Bethe vs Shayna - Good girl fight with a storyline behind it and Bethe could possibly face Rousey next if she wins
Nijem vs Ferreira - Two good grapplers that are coming off strong performances. Nijem's got UFC experience and has been improving but Carlos looks like a really strong grappler and he got a quick finish in his debut
Yancy vs Jackson - Stoked to see Yancy fight and Jackson has won all his fights via finish and also beat Leonard Garcia in his last fight. I'm expecting a finish in this one mostly for Yancy
Not too interested in the undercard but I expect Larkin vs Brunson to be good and HW fight should be entertaining. Potts is a finisher and I hope he can get a good finish. Don't know the other guys but hopefully they put on a good fight
Overall I think this card will surprise a lot of people. If you have nothing else to do today, you watch every event, and have the money then why not buy it? I'll definitely be watching. Just glad to have some fights on today!
