There's not a lot of depth there really though, in the sense that if the main event falls out, they're pretty fucked. Gus vs Glover is the main event. Excellent fight. We've talked a fair bit about the light heavyweight division's woes recently but this is one of the few must see fights out there at 205 at the moment IMO. You've got the technique and volume striking of Gustafsson vs the raw punching power and grappling of Teixeira. My fear with this is, they've booked this fight a couple of times now and it's went tits up due to injury pullouts. Hopefully that won't be the case this time and we'll finally get to see these two throw down because it should be an incredible fight. Having it on Gus' home turf will only add to the atmosphere as well. Can't wait for this one. Anyone need a jar opening?... Misha Cirkunov is back in the octagon. He's from Latvia, lives in Canada and he's an absolute fucking tank of a man. 13-2 in MMA. And he's 4-0 so far in the UFC, all finishes. Submitted Nikita Krylov in a round at UFC 206 in December. He looks decent, to be honest. Can't see him making a real splash at the top end of 205 but in the current landscape he could probably beat a lot of guys below the top 5. This card also sees the return of Norwegian wildman Emil Weber Meek. Just look at the cunt. He's 9-2 in MMA and he's a lot of fun to watch. He's fighting style is as wild as his appearance. He made his UFC debut at UFC 206 where he won a decision over Jordan Mein in an exciting fight. He also holds a 45 second TKO win over Rousimar Palhares. He's a likeable guy too. There's a certain charm and charisma to him if you watch his interviews. He's fighting Nordine Taleb who's no joke in his own right. A tough Canadian who knocked out Erick Silva not too long ago. This is ***WAND'S ONE TO WATCH*** on this card. I'm hoping it makes the televised bit of the card because I can see it stealing the show. What else? Taisumov vs Silva could be good. Taisumov can be a real handful and Silva is unbeaten. Saunders vs Sobotta should be lively as well. I expect Saunders to win but he can be hot and cold and Sobotta the same way sometimes. Skills wise though, if they're both up for it I expect an entertaining fight. So yeah, not an amazing card or anything. Could throw up some good fights though and as long as that main event stays intact we're good. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
