    I'm going with Romero as well. I don't think this PPV is even worth going out for.

    Been trying to talk myself into this card, but I can't do it.

    I'm intrigued by Tai Tuivasa because of how bad HW is. Hopefully Jeremy Kennedy can show well, it would be nice to have another fighter from BC to get behind.

    Other than that..

    Disagree :)

    Hopefully the Aussie peeps get their jobs done. Good luck to The Jedi as well.

    I mean going out with friends to watch it like I do with all PPVs. This looks like a card for Australians but they're putting in on PPV rather than a fight night like usual. I think it's probably okay for the locals and I'd definitely go if this card was in Edmonton with Romero/Rockhold headlining and a bunch of solid Canadians on the under card.

    Romero also looks like he might be nursing some sort of injury. He was walking around laboured and avoiding putting weight on one of his legs.

    Check this clip out as he goes down the stairs

    the middleweight division is a circus show for better or for worse, kinda fitting this happens. Still tho, Romero winning would void another useless interim belt, which isn't all bad.

    This should not be a PPV.

    Israel Adesanya is a guy to look for. Very good kickboxing background.

    Big win for Formiga over Nguyen. Spinning back fist and then a RNC to finish.

    Looking forward to Adesanya's debut to see what all the hype is about.

    Impressive debut for Adesanya. Those were some nasty knees and body strikes.

    I'm officially a fan after that performance and post-fight interview.

    Adesanya got star potential. meaning UFC will screw him up and rush him when he's not ready.

    Israel looks and fights like a Jon Jones Jr. Gonna have to keep an eye on him.

    He's more of a Anderson Silva than Bones Jones.
