... decent card considering the continued big name exploitation of fighters that should have retired,

I also think of Barboza as past his prime, .. Dariush live dawg here -

 

... DB/ Cowboy tough call in Brazil, Borg/ Formiga likey, Reneau subbed Andrade & went 3 w/ Holm '15,

Trinaldo/ Lee, Soto/ Yahya, Godo/ Boch, all good ... should be fun -

Not really, there are about 4 fighters on the card with fans and 2 of those should have retired already.

Better card than 209.  Two of the old guard defending their pride from the young bucks.  Plus the mighty Kevin Lee and Joe Soto.  What's not to like?

The Motown Phenom finally gets to body a ranked fighter to take his rightful spot in the rankings.

He better dominate this fight though. These Brazilians will award a guy a win with his eyeball hanging out of the socket.

Let's just skip forward a couple months and laugh at how Tim Elliot, a guy that they cut, is about to get the next title shot, without even beating anyone that's currently in the company.

LOL.. The UFC is a mess.

They say Vitor has great BJJ but I have never seen it. Did zero to Weidman from his back. I don;t even think he tried anything.

He subbed Rumble at LHW and almost got Jones with an armbar. His jits seem fine. He does struggle badly with good wrestlers though. It seems like he doesn't know how to escape once someone has him in a controlling position.

I don't think either of those things is great BJJ.

 

He may have it, but I've never seen it. JDS - same thing. Supposed to great BJJ but have not seen it.
