    I don't really care for most of this card either. Jacare vs. Gastelum is a very good fight that matters at 185. I also like Lineker vs. Kelleher and I want to see how Dern performs in her second fight.

    I will be absolutely shocked if Pennington is competitive at all in this fight.

    This card is built for the Brazilians and nobody else. The only fight I want to see is Jacare vs. Gastelum.

    Dern missed weight by 7 lbs but the fight is still happening. She's reaching Lineker levels now with the amount of times she has failed to make 115 lbs. This is the third time in six fights at 115.

    Guaranteed as soon as the Brazilian commission saw the weight advantage, they figured it would be an easy win for her, so they sanctioned it.

    So the question is, did Dern even try to cut or what? That's pretty bad. Not quite Gabi Garcia bad but it's not close.

    Olyniyk is so ridiculously strong, that's incredible. He makes it look so easy.

    Nice KO again, not even going to be performance of the night with some of the finishes so far though.

    Crazy night of fights so far.

    Lomachenko gets dropped but then comes back and wins with a nasty body shot.

    In Bellator, huge KOs from Kongo and Pico. The Fitch fight was terrible, but now Bader just knocked out King Mo. I might have even missed a fight in there.

    Machida with an amazing KO, Lineker with a nice one too. Now just a great finish by Dern. Good undercard too.

    Two big fights still to come.
