Something fairly funny, UFC 221 is basically the same card as the Fight Night on the 19th minus the Main event. Even the Co. Main is similar in terms of rankings. How can this be a PPV card

actually finding it so hard to predict the main event

 

Luke got knocked out by Bisping and his stand up looked terrible against branch

 

Yoel couldn't beat a one legged bobbie knuckles

 

5 round fight

Vert, you do remember that Romero already ducked Luke for a 5 round bout, right ?

 

What does that tell you m8 ? I know you are a smart guy.

 

Jokes aside now, Romero is a beast BUT he is gonna struggle with everything Luke got to throw at him. Romero is one of the best wrestlers in MMA World right now BUT he aint gonna be able to do chit with Luke's very underrated grappling. 

 

Luke will take his time, keep the distance and wait for Romero to get tired by late round 3.

6'3 versus roids,neither guy belongs at 185.

I will still cheer for Rockhold but not sure how he will handle the sheer power coming at him.

 

This is almost a case for Luke to not mount too much pressure,just enough to take rounds.If he puts too much heat on,then Romero will force the TD and then not so sure BJJ wil matter versus his roid power.One thing however is that at 6'3 that gives Luke a ton of leverage with sort of brings Romero back to him a bit.

 

This is basically Luke's win until Romero can prove a meaningful TD.

I agree.

 

Luke can win this easily by just cruising with a decision keeping Romero at bay but if he goes forward trying to finish Romero then it might be a bad/short night for Luke for sure

I dunno. Rockhold looked pretty poor against David branch.
If Romero can start off well he can win it.

Well, you have a valid point m8 but regardless of his father death I still he overlooked Bisping and paid for it. I mean the guy had already beat Bisping before that fight so I guess he was over confident.

 

One thing I agree with you tho ... Romero can actually KTFO Luke in a blink of an eye

Luke has the worst striking defense in mma....its no coincidence he was KO'd by Bisping.

Hard to believe it!

 

Im confused whether the UFC is going nuts or just considering the fans a bunch of idiots!

 

They could, easily, remove Romero vs Luke and put it in some other card (lets say UFC 222) and make the rest of it FS1 or even Fight Pass if they want it.
