I'm struggling a lot with this upcoming card, although the last one was garbage since so many unknowns.
This is my current 'main card'.

but I hate it pretty bad.
I like Rory to win but had to take Lawler due to cap issues and the unlikely possibility he can land a KO. This notwithstanding the fact that their first fight was the single worst, most boring fight in UFC history.

Penred is a ****ing snoozer, so there will be no big points there and its not entirely impossible that Howard doesn't beat him, but he's probably a reliable $10k salary cap, 60 point decision.

Thatch, Smolka and Bermudez I am comfortable with and were my core picks. They wanted way too much for Almeida and Garbrandt (both < $11K), either of whom I would've taken over anyone else on the card, but 11K ****s everything up and would've meant I had to sacrifice two core picks and replace them with dogs like Briones, Swick or Pickett (and I was damn near tempted to do that to get Almeida on there)

I'm working on alt cards now.

Everyone knew it was coming. Glad UFC trolled him with an interim belt.

I have moneyline bets on Bermudez @ -195 and Macdonald @ -170 with a $10 flier on Mcdonald by submission @ +550 (which I am very surprised to see is only +550, which suggests that maybe a couple others have the same intuition I do)

I wasn't aware he has backed out of 5 title fights in his career. In the interview I saw Dana threw that in there in a nonchalant way, but I could feel the sting he intended.

The fact they gave this to Mendes and not Frankie proves that Dana White is human garbage.
I don't know who he thinks buys his whole "Joe Silva" charade but everyone know's what's going on behind the scenes there. He knows that Mendes is much more likely (read: stupid enough) to stand and trade (against someone who very well may starch his ass in the process and the UFC wants to see win) whereas Frankie is smart enough to use his weapon to meaningful effect, haul Connors ass to the floor and GnP his drunkard Irish face completely inside out like he's never had it before.

They picked Mendes because Mendes is more likely to lose. Golden Goose bullshit.

Is it a possibility that they didn't want Edgar to fight on short notice so he could headline a future ppv? Edgar is a bigger name then Mendes and they might be able to make more money having more marketing time with Edgar in a future card where they can advertise his name for months

All I had to read was IQ and I knew it was Diaz bro reference

I feel like both Diaz brothers have been a joke for at least 5 years. If either of them get a high profile fight and UFC fans eat it up then I will lose faith in the sport

This recent Nate Diaz interview after the Mexico ppv was awesome. I heard people making fun of it on a radio show
