We’ve had some absolutely splendid fight cards, and some major upsets, here’s a brief run down of the best and worst of the year.
UFC 218 is stacked with some really fun fights from top to bottom, and some absolute pickem’ fights. I can’t remember a time in history where everyone on the main card is ranked #6 and above. We probably won’t see a more stacked card this year so make the most of it, I mean Eddie Alvarez vs Justin Gaethje has to be the most amazing fight ever made.
The biggest fear is that Overeem is nobody to be overlooked, and if Overeem got a win it would essentially kill the hype train before it truly got going. It’s a big fight for the heavyweight division, the future of the UFC could all change with one big punch.
He’s the ultimate role model for the sport, he’s the ultimate perfectionist. His fight IQ is like nobody else and he has the skill set to match it, he’s not just a legend of the sport, but he’s continuously evolving into better versions of his previous self.
A lot of people consider Bisping to be the favourite in this match up here, which kind of confuses me.
