    Obviously not a great card on paper, but lots of exciting fighters all over this card. Should be some great finishes.

    Definitely one in the column for the "The UFC has too many events" crowd.

    I don't know if I will catch this one, but I am interested to find out what happens in the main event. Big step up in competition for Smith.

    I think this card is actually pretty good for one in New Brunswick. Going to be a small gate so they have to work around that but some exciting fights, think there will be some decent finishes.

    Was hoping to see a good bounce back fight from Gavin Tucker but health reasons have him out of the card, unfortunately.

    Tucker v Soukhamthath would have been a fun one, too.

    Can't wait for this card to be behind us so I can stop hearing American MMA media pronounce "Moncton" incorrectly.

    Also no way in hell this should be a 6-fight main card. At least if it was on Fight Pass, there'd be no commercials.

    Nice to see Cirkunov get back on track with a quick and impressive win. He has lost some of that shine he had coming up but the only guys he has lost to in the UFC are Volkan and Glover.

    Lobov actually won a round and did better than I expected but no surprise with that result. Short notice or not, Johnson is just a much better fighter.

    Another big win for Smith. He has to be very close to a title shot after finishing the #2 ranked LHW.

    I missed most of the prelims, but great wins for Smith and Cirkunov.

    Sean Strickland is a guy who will quietly stick around on the fringes of the top 15. Beating Taleb is a nice win, and his only losses are to other really good fighters.
