    Finally! Not loving most of the underdogs except Shavkat.

    Struve vs Tuivasa or the battle of 2 guys I vowed to always fade going forward.

  • CityBoy410

    Quick read this as “aint got no albini” and i was wondering why you made things worse hah

  • jki7p6

    Kenney/Wood low key possible fotn

  • thedkexperience

    This is the first time I’ve ever been tempted to use both fighters in the main event in the same lineup.

    “I used to fight in the UFC.”
    “Really? That’s cool, man.”
    “Yeah, I was the diaper guy!”
    “…”

    Agree about Kenney/Wood.

    Colby Covington is the type of guy to order Uber eats for two and ask the driver to eat with him so he can post “ chilling with the boys “

    Unrelated to this card, but felt it was gold. From Belal Muhammad’s twitter

    Just waiting til the day before the fight, we find out that Shakirova is Khabib fiancé. 😩

    Belal is a trip and that seems accurate lol.

  • someclevername

    Estimate of how Khabib’s opponents have DK scored against him thus far in the UFC (from me, drinking & looking at ufcstats.com):

    Dustin Poirier – 6
    Conor McGregor – 25.5
    Al Iaquinta – 20.5
    Edson Barboza – 12.5
    Michael Johnson – 9.5
    Darrell Horcher – 3
    Rafael Dos Anjos – 10
    Pat Healy – 22
    Abel Trujillo – 10.5
    Thiago Tavares – 1
    Gleison Tibau – 19
    Kamal Shalorus – 6.5

  • NewMike

    My math says he’s had 2 fights where he’s outscored all of his UFC opponents combined. Although, according to some people he was completely dominated by Conor and only won because of a slip and Conor fans are always realistic in their takes.

    Either way, I will most likely be around 100% on this fight and heavier on Justin than most people, I think he has the best style to beat The Eagle and at 7k I think he has a tonne of value.

    *Redacted my rant lol they need to just take the L.

    Khabib Time…but getting nervous Justin shows up at weigh-ins with a shaved head.

    DK finally added Murphy $8800/Shakirova $7400

  • NewMike

    I liked the rant, probably because I completely agree. I never have and never will be able to understand why people take it personally when you take a different fighter to win a fight.

    I think I will have some Murphy, I’m feeling “Lucky”

  • someclevername

    Lineup lookin’ real sketch with Cowboy Oliveira & Tai Tuivasa in it at present.

  • yisman

    All the other fight island cards they fought in the middle of the night there so it would be right for the USA. But for the big event it’s 8 am PDT/11 AM EDT

    DK currently showing a fight as canceled. Was that even scheduled? Can’t find anything about this. Morozov?

    Morozov vs Nurmagomedov is cancel because Nurmagomedov got sick.

    Khabib 155 used the towel and looked pretty damn relieved

    Gaethje also in at 155

    Alvarez weighed in like 15 minutes into the weigh ins at 159. He didn’t seem to care about trying to lose those 4 pounds.

  • NewMike

    One of Cutelaba’s cornermen tested positive for covid. Noooooo!

  • thevogaman

    I threw a couple of Hail Mary Gaethje wins by decision (+1200) into some parlays. Probably a reach, but I think the narrative is a little off for this fight. I think Khabib is more likely to win by finish of the two… and Justin could squeak out the last 2 rounds to steal a decision or maybe get a 10-8 somewhere if he lands something big and actually win a dominant decision.

    That or Khabib just smashes him (the most likely outcome).

    I kind of like Wood and Tuivasa as my dogs… both sides of Whittaker/Cannonier. Jojua got another guard sub in her at no ownership? This is a great card for DFS.

    If you have 5 minutes to spare check out this link….If not, long story short is the scale was still moving up when they called Khabib’s weight. I wonder why they sent him out first when he was overweight.
