    Interesting card. I hope Covington ko's Usman but I fear he will get caught trying to do just that. I hope the chinese fighter Zhang knocks Namajunas smug face back to preschool. Gaethje looks to be in tough but should prevail. Edgar needs to retire while his brain still works...

    Absolutely loaded card. Some good caste matchups. Really hoping Colby can pull the upset. Pissed off I'm out of town, so I'll likely be searching for a link to watch it over my phone.

    I'm Lithuanian and from Milwaukee, and I still hope Namajunas gets knocked out. She is whigger.

    What a JOKE! 46-49 UD for Usman?

    Usman didn't win any round but the second, maybe the first, Colby controlled the fight and rocked Usman many times after as well as taking him down.

    That's just what I'm seeing, if anyone sees anything different tell me.

    Namajunas wins.

    Another Joke:

    Covington reacts to Usman’s 50 clean drug tests: He’s finding a way to cheat the system

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mm...-finding-a-way-to-cheat-the-system/ar-AAQoEkc

    Close Colby... They are letting him cheat. I heard someone on Sherdog say that Weili is being allowed to juice (they were basing that off of her appearance?) because they UFC wants a Chinese champion to open to the Chinese market.
    But I think this is true for Usman as well.

    Usman fans and DWFs are going to use this say that his combination of bulk and cardio (as well as massively increased head size and acne) are a result of superior genetics,
    but it doesn't matter how many drug tests one passes as in the case of Armstrong, who likely had less bias in his favor than Usman.
    The USADA jacket is a hollow trinket.

    Covington had him hurt on their feet and inexpicable went for a take down. I've seen that many times almost always from an overthinking White fighter. Gotta have a killer instinct. Just think - would Usman had gone for a take down if Colby was wobbled? Not a chance.

    He also had him hurt with a body kick and didn't follow it up with more body attacks. Of course he had him hurt from a body kick in the first fight but Usman was allowed to fake that it was a nut shot or his night would have been over then and there.

    Usman won the fight but it was very close, the cut that Covington got in the first round made the next 4 rounds seem much worse for Covington than it was. Usman controlled the ground and the striking until the 4th. I agree Covington hurt him badly with the leg shot to the gut and should have gone full throttle immediately, he would have put Usman away then but he went for a take down instead.

    Weili has the fight in the first round when she rocked Rose but let her off the hook. Props to Rose if she is fighting clean because Zhang definitely juiced. The haircut didn’t help either lol
