Frankly fairly meh card IMO.

Bisping vs GSP I couldn't give two shits about. It's a freakshow fight against a champ who only got his title via lucky shot and a retired, much smaller fighter with a big name. If I had to pick, I'd go with Bisping by decision via size and GSP's ring rust, but I don't have to pick, so I won't. **** the UFC.

Garbrandt vs Dillashaw is the best fight on this card. Dillashaw is great, but Garbrandt's the better striker IMO and is likely to land some big hits. I'll take Garbrandt by TKO, but it should be exciting.

Joanna vs Namajunas is a **** matchup. Joey J is miles ahead of Namajunas in every category that matters - I'll take JJ by fairly easy TKO.

I am not too familiar with Masvidal, so cannot comment. Keep getting him confused with other fighters.

Hendricks is on his way out. Loss by decision.

And why is OSP on the prelims? He's a great fighter.

Ok first of all, no such thing as lucky shots. Bisping meant to punch Rockhold, and he did. Also, freakshow is a bit over the top. GSP is a former champ who never lost his title, now stepping up to a larger division. Was Penn vs Hughes a freakshow? It's a big fight, with one of our old heroes returning. Be happy.

Dillishaw is going to defeat Garbrandt convincingly, you heard it here first folks.

Joanna Champion has looked great, but I've loved Thug Rose since back when Cagepotato was a thing. If she can make it ugly, Thug can for sure get the upset.

How can you not be familiar with Masdival? Dude fought in Bodog, Pride, EliteXC, backyards, and Bellator. He's a no belt legend dude. Doo u eeeben UFC?

Agreed, never liked Hendricks and now he's declining.

OSP fights either suck or he loses, that's why.

Penn had utterly smoked the most promising competitors in a much more anaemic weight class than MW is today and was a divine asskicker. Bisping's a gatekeeper who lucked out against a champion who'd skullfucked him in a previous fight and thus failed to take him seriously. Lucky shots are absolutely a thing if they occur early on in the fight and you could make the very compelling argument that the shottee would beat the piss out of the shooter 9 times out of 10, which is absolutely the case with Bisping vs Rockhold.

I've UFCed pretty hard since about 2003. Not familiar with Masvidal. I think I keep confusing him with somebody else with a Hispanic surname /racist.

You might remember in the early Bellator days, when Masdival got inverted triangle choked unconscious? It was a big deal at the time.

I think Bisping's skills are constantly undersold. I think he wins any matchup with Rockhold where he doesn't end up in a bottom grappling position.

I dont think gsp will win. He hasnt fought in years. The trend has been for big names, if they spend a year or more not fighting then return and lose. Training for competition and then competing with the desire of winning is different than just training. Anything can happen but bisping has kept his gears greased. Not to mention the weight class they are at. Didnt gsp say he woukd drop down again after this fight? Why waste everyones time with this ****.

Joanna is queen of her division. She has outclassed everyone. Karolina did better than everyone else but still wasnt enough.

Will GSP be wearing his signature gi or his signature vaseline?? I never thought I would say this, but I hope Bisping wins.

And TJ! I'm making money on this card son! Duane Ludwig is one of my all time favorites. Met him at my first fight, and he was super cool. Glad to see his guy win it.

Yeah, the old crew got together for this one. Even the big man himself came out.
GSP is a fucking icon up here.

GSP deserves his acclaim. Good dude who works hard. Oh and he didn't play it safe and LNP for the Win.
