    Couple of good fights on this card.

    Main event should be an exciting stand up fight. Vick has been on a good run and could earn himself a big fight with a win, and I've always been an Alves fan so I'm looking forward to him being back even though he's nowhere near the fighter he once was. As for the co-main, I don't know how it'll go but I really hope Lewis scores a big KO to set up a fight with Ngannou in the summer.

    The undercund is junk, but that's a pretty fun main card. Hopefully Cerrone and Lewis can bounce back.

    That's a pretty solid main card.

    Hopefully Cowboy can stop the bleeding.

    How is Josh Burkman still fighting in the UFC? His UFC record is 6-11 and 1NC. Throw the #7 ranked Welterweight from LFA in there, he surely couldn't be much worse.

    Millender looked great.

    Not sure he can defend a takedown but he's a handful for anyone on the feet.

    Black Beast! Nice comeback win. Have to do the Ngannou fight now.

    Though Black Beast will probably never be a top heavyweight, his knockout power is just something to behold. Love watching him fight.

    Lewis' interviews are always great. Then you have Nate lighting up in the front row. Haha.

    Nate Diaz pulling out a joint on live TV in Texas. Never change, Nate.

    I cheer for Lewis to win every time just so I can hear him say something funny in the interview. He didn't disappoint.

    Cowboy started off slow, but he finished that round about as perfectly as possible. Good win for him.

    Fun finish to the fight card.

    Not the most exciting fight between Vick/Trinaldo but Vick got it done and deserves a step up in competition.

    Millender looked really good against Alves.

    Fights I wanna see after this card: Vick - Lee , Lewis - Ngannou and Ponzinibbio - Cerrone sounds like an interesting fight but I don't think Ponz will take a fight with a lower ranked opponent. He did take a fight with Perry though who wasn't ranked.

    HW and LHW are appalling thin. Admittedly I'm not a huge black beast fan, but if he's knocking on the door of a number one contender fight that's a pretty sad state of affairs.

    Millender looks like a legit top prospect. also looks like a big middleweight. I dunno how he makes 170. He's got a bit of Jon Jones in the way he uses his reach.

    Northcutt looked terrible against Gouti, who's pretty much a lower tier LW on the roster. Thought Texas handed a free win to Northcutt, but, whatever, it's bad performance from both men. The more i see Northcutt, the more i just think he's not a good tactical & strategic striker and his chin sucks. He's spending his development years to survive in the UFC , which is mostly a recipe to build a journeyman. Though, without a chin, he's not gonna become a good journeyman.

    I want to see Lewis fight for the belt one day. He's fun to watch, fun to listen to, one of the only likeable heavyweights

    Thought it would be a fun main card, and it worked out. Hoped Lewis and Cerrone would bounce back with wins, and they did. Solid night of fights.

    It sounds like Cerrone is moving back to LW, which makes sense for him. Beniel Dariush just lost his opponent and gave Vick his only loss so that's the rematch I would like to see. A win for Vick there gets him into the top ten. Kevin Lee vs Edson Barboza makes sense too, both coming off losses.

    Two options for Cerrone: The rematch vs Eddie Alvarez, or if Jose Aldo wants to move up to 155 lbs then Cerrone v Aldo.

    I know people are calling for Ngannou v Lewis.. but I want Ngannou v Hunt. Not sure who fits for Lewis.. maybe Overeem?

    Yeah, really impressed with Millender. Looked very composed for a guy in his first UFC fight as well. We will need to see him defend a takedown but he looks promising.

    Imo, Super Sage really messed up by letting his dad control his training. Pulling out of Tristar was a huge mistake. He's got the physical tools and athleticism, he would've progressed tremendously under Zahabi. He needs a super technician/game plan oriented coach, I don't think TAM is a fit there.
