UFC 281 this weekend and is quite a card!

Several good fights and a lot of them seem to be pick'ems.

Who do people have winning?

Personally i have Adesanya losing his title - he lost to Pereira twice in kickboxing and Adesanya has never looked the same since he went up to LHW and lost. I wonder if that had an impact. Reminds me of Roy Jones Jnr after he won a HW belt and then got beaten by Tarver when he went back down.

Poirier vs Chandler should be a great fight. I'm slightly favouring Poirier but i think that Chandler has the best chance of anyone to beat the new champ. Has great wrestling and one punch ko power - if he gets past Dustin that could be a good fight.

Esparza vs Zhang should be a close fight too - totally undecided on this one

Frankie Edgar in his retirement fight will be interesting. In typical style he has taken a decent opponent and not just a glorified exhibition to go out on. An excellent fighter who is a definite Hall of Famer i think,

All in all it's a great card - you know a card is deep when Dominick Reyes is on the Prelims!

Was an interesting event :

takeaways for me were :

- Adesanya has just met a guy he can't beat. He is probably more skillful but Periera just hits too hard. He kinda makes a mockery of weight classes. Apparently he stepped into the cage at 220lbs, and made weight easily at 184.5lbs. That is roughly Jon Jones in cage weight at his peak!

- Chandler needs to work on his cardio. He is very close to beating the top guys but keeps losing due to his gas tank. Great fighter to watch though

Sounds like it was a fun card. I haven't seen a UFC in so long; I just can't lay down the money for it.

Yeah you guys in the US get the bad end of the stick for PPV it seems. Most ufc cards are shown here on a satellite/cable channel as part of my regular subscription and whenever a boxing of ufc event is put on as ppv it is usually 20-25 max. I have seen you guys get charged $99 sometimes which seems crazy to me!
