Two Heavyweight sluggers, Francis Ngannou and Junior Dos Santos are booked in the main event. Francis recently knocked out Cain Velasquez in the first round and Junior just fought Derrick Lewis. Both fighters looking to contend for the heavyweight title. No way this fight is going the distance.
Francis is back to the Francis of old before fighting Stipe Miocic.
“I have carried my fear from the last fight to this one,” he said after losing to Lewis. It was a blunt self-assessment with an edge so serrated, it sounded like a confession. Fear? Few admit fear in the fight game unless it’s in the abstract. Never in regards to a specific fight, let alone a key moment. It was candid, vulnerable, memorable. As it result, it stuck to Ngannou, even though during the same statement, he vowed, “I won’t let everyone down again.” Francis Ngannou
Woodley arguably the greatest welterweight of all time lost to Kamaru Usman. Woodley got dominated by Usman the ENTIRE fight. However Woodley is strong minded and is returning to fight Robbie Lawler on June 29th. Thought Woodley was going to get a rematch against Usman but guess not…
Thought Woodley was going to get a rematch, PPV Main event against Usman but was completely wrong. However Woodley has to climb back to the top and win the Welterweight title! Woodley though has no tough task against Lawler.
“Robbie Lawler looked better than ever against Askren.” Joe Rogan
Before Woodley KO’d Lawler, Lawler was a killer. Lawler was in five round wars but came out on top!! Defended the belt multiple times, During his reign was one of the best fighters on the planet.
Robbie looks like the Robbie of old and that means the welterweight division is in trouble. Woodley vs Lawler fight is going to be fascinating to watch, Have no idea who will win. However tune in June 29th on ESPN to see who comes out on top!!
Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman are two fighters from Nigeria, World Class fighters. Usman welterweight champion and Adensanya can be the next champion by facing Kelvin Gastelum. Next two future champions are Sodiq Yusuff and Kennedy Nzechukwu. Both young hungry lions from Nigeria.

“Nzechukwu’s start in MMA was like any story should start. “It was always something I wanted to do, especially when I was back in Nigeria. I used to read newspapers and see Chuck Liddell, and see other guys like the Gracies. I was like, ‘What is this for, people fighting for money? This is something I would love to do.’” Cage Side Press.Com
Without a doubt these two men will be future champions in couple years, Becoming two other UFC Africa Champions!
Kevin Lee moving up to welterweight to face Rafael Dos Anjos. Lee used to be a lightweight but the cut was HORRIBLE FOR HIM.
“The weight cut, was what it was. I wasn’t going to let down the whole show, let down everybody. I was going to make weight, even if I had to cut my foot off or something,” he said. “It damn near killed me, but I had to do what I had to do. I got job to do. I’m a professional. I would come out here no matter how bad it hurts. I felt like I put my best performance on tonight, but by the third round it was just too much for me.” SB Nation
Kevin Lee is a beast, One of the best young fighters in the UFC today. Lee already competed for a UFC Title and headlined 4 main events. Lee at welterweight is very fascinating, Lee is a new addition to the welterweight division, Giving Usman, Covington, Woodley, Askren a lot of trouble.
Possible for Kevin Lee to become the UFC Welterweight champion of the world. Lee can go on a complete tear first by beating Rafael Dos Anjos and other top 5-10 welterweights. Lee is an all around fighter and has so much potential. Kevin Lee can be one of the stars of the UFC and it may start now!
Soren Bak is the Cage Warriors Lightweight and interim Featherweight champion. Cage Warriors is the best European promotion having world class fighters showcase their talents here. Cage Warriors had Michael Bisping, Dan Hardy, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Conor McGregor.
Soren has beaten European prospects at Cage Warriors and now it’s time to beat UFC fighters!
Conor the star of the UFC, The Irish Warrior who brought his whole country with him. Conor’s title run at the featherweight division was amazing and winning the lightweight title against Eddie Alvarez were incredible times. The Mayweather vs McGregor tour was very entertaining and the fight will never be forgotten in combat sports history. Conor vs Khabib was a dream fight for the ages but Conor got obliterated.
Conor net worth is 100 to 150 million dollars, Hard to continue to fighting when your rich. However if Conor is intrigued to fight again who will he fight?
Conor vs Khabib 2
Conor vs Khabib 1 had 2.4 PPV Buys which was good business for everybody. The second fight can be 3.5 PPV buys which is a lot of money for the UFC. It’s a fight to make but Conor is going to lose.
Conor vs Holloway
Conor fought Max when Max was a kid. Max is the best featherweight of all time, Both fighters are strikers. It can be a very entertaining fight and a fight for the ages. Fight that makes sense. Max moved up to lightweight to fight Dustin Poirier, Conor vs Max can be a lightweight fight.
Conor vs Nate Diaz 3
Both fights were top 10 greatest fights of all time in the UFC. Selled well PPV wise and Conor just wants fights that make him the most money. The Third Fight is what everybody wants to see, Has to happen eventually.
Conor vs Woodley
Conor and Tyron have been trash talking for a while, Since UFC 205. Woodley is one of the best welterweights of all time. Woodley can sell fights but never had a partner to sell it with. Conor fought at 170 once against Nate Diaz. Possibly be a WelterWeight fight or a catchweight fight.
Overall Conor is a star, He’s been tweeting a lot lately trying to hype up fights, See what makes the most sense to him. Love to see Conor fight once or twice and the whole world would love to see Conor return inside the Octagon.
The obvious fights to watch is the Legend himself Anthony Pettis fighting Stephen Thompson. The other fights/ Fighters to watch is Curtis Blaydes vs Justin Willis, Both young Heavyweights looking to contend for a heavyweight title…Soon.
Besides the main event and co main event there are some excellent fights and fighters to watch. Young HUNGRY Lions looking to become UFC champions one day.
