Benefit popping up as often in conduct definitely someone. We saw a lot of potential match. It a lot of people wanna see you know running back with robbie lawler bacteria as a lot of legends matches for him so but guy. There are officially.

Napa set one of the first people in the sport to give me an opportunity to interview him what he was bell tower at the time he was just rolling through and this is a guy who missed so many years just kept winning fights and finishing fights. Everyone's wondering one. Is this guy going to get his shot. One guy going to get a shot goes on the contender series gets finished by kurt. Hollow another guy who were like. When's he gonna get his chance to get back to the ufc there and then beset gets a shot at ufc. Boston goes oh into a couple of really competitive fights and goes on ends career the way that he wanted to and then carlos condit i mean good lord aka how we throw win certain fighters you see him and you just like that dude is about that life when i saw carlos condit fight for wbz.

The of is back on pay per view. Ufc two sixty six exciting card. Three five round fights. two title fights headlined by alexander. Volkov ski bursts. Brian ortega balancing shevchenko defends. Her flyweight title. Against lauren murphy. And a lot of people just feel like bouncing to go in there and just steamroller and murphy i. Lauren is a maga. she's alive dog. But i think she i think she gives valentina a little bit of a tougher fight than people think. She's just a she likes to make fights dirty and grimy. i think that's i think valentine will win. I'm not gonna go crazy. But i feel like lauren is going to be more competitive than people think. Of course the rematch. Seventeen years in the making robbie lawler versus nick diaz five rounds non-title only the second time this has happened in ufc history. We've got curtis blades versus giardina roseanne. Strike just on. Drudge versus cynthia. Caviar huge pfeiffer. Cynthia cavallo i. If she wins she could get a title shot despite coming off of a loss to kaitlin keagan in her previous fight featured prelims marl. Mariah's versus douala's willie holy cow. That is a crazy fight. Hopefully we get dan. Hooker versus nasdaq hawks. Shamila brahima versus chris.

Fourth. what am i crazy is that is that not real. You keep talking about. How regis that could be wild. Look this up. Do you have the reckonings staying blowing up right. Now i will. I'm a click away. I'm a click away. I if you look at our rankings. Someone has him behind holloway they do. Aj mckee and brian ortega. Oh my lord this is a thing. This is real.
