I have no idea how that is the main event or how this is a PPV

 

I hope Rocky somehow steals the show and that WME gets so pissed they close the division

Honestly, I think this is a better overall PPV card than the last few (223 would've been better by a mile if it hadn't fallen apart).

 

Although I guess that says more about the quality of recent PPV cards than it does about the quality of this show.

I think this card was suppose to have RDA vs Covington too but they are worried about what will happen if Colby goes to back to Brazil. His bodyguards wouldn't be able to stop everyone.

Dern's accent in contrast not so much...haha

 

Maybe because i know she just likes to pour on the Brasil accent when her first language is English.  

 

She's cute though so i give her a pass. I'm sure my homie Mauro would agree. lol

She's facing a .500 fighter with all of their losses by submission. lol
    
This is similar to the Sage Northcutt thing, but they're being extra careful about who they feed her.

Jacare is a powerhouse but unless he gets it to the ground....

 

 

 

 

 

I think Kelvin is just too fast & sharp right now. 

 

Vitor looked terrible. Lyoto looked pretty good but not his old self.

I read an article about Dern being booted from MMA Lab. Evidently she likes hanging out at the beach more than she does training because she gets burned out with training and mentioned something about being involved with Jitz since she was 3 so it's hard for her to hit the mats day in day out. Said she needs to be away at times to get the motivation back. < Well how about work on your striking & MMA wrestling in the mean time. 

 

It shows in her fights that she's just being lazy & not taking it srsly. Hopefully she gets her @zz spanked so she'll realize either she needs to take it srs or this isn't the sport for her.

You have to be a special kind of retarded to think they fed her two straight cupcakes, scheduled her for another on a main card of a PPV, and then will cut her for missing weight, when she routinely missed weight before the UFC.
