just thought this card looked great, how bout you?
great main event
awesome co main
great heavyweight fight between 2 beasts
also curious to see Rashad return on it
but how about the winner of Overheem vs Hunt to Fight derrick lewis next, I think that makes perfect sence but what about ngannou, he would be a good fit to fight the winner of that fight also, but id say put him against velasquez since he called out that monster, or the werdum vs rothwell winner, what do yall think?

I wouldent mine seeing lewis or ngannou vs the Miocic vs Dos Santos loser either, but that fight still has a while to go so id say put him in vs Velasquez now and lewis vs the Overheem vs Hunt winner, he called out hunt already and rather its hunt or overeem vs lewis, that will be a brutal slug fest with a sure KO ending

Not taking anything away from Lewis' accomplishments, but I think he's gonna have a rude awakening with his next step up in competition. Brawling can get you a string of W's, but it doesn't get you to the top.

yeah I watched that fight with Jordan and mitrione, I know hes improved since then but I doubt he can handle a top level guy, especially a wrestler like Velasquez

209 definitely had a euro look to it.
Besides the main event. Alot of international fighters on it.

Kelly from aussie
Eagle from russia
Ferguson from Mexico descent
Reem
Hunt from zealand
Teymur from sweden

Henrique from brazil
Tybura
Godbeer
Bektic

List keep going.

For a vegas card not international fight week in july. Its different.
For me personally being there live. Just alot of fighters i probably wont see fight live again since they may be fighting in the original countries in the future like bektic.

Lewis is not elite whatsoever.He is definitely powerful and is growing but he has serious holes in his game.

In Bellator he got controlled and outgrappled by Tony Johnson and lost by UD.Hes been kod in UFC by meathead and Jordan......

The last fight with browne was not impressive other then lewis overcame body blows to ko browne.But Lewis was largely innaccurate and brawled.

Velasquez will run through lewis so will any hw with wrestling that doesn't just stand with him.

yeah man agree, he is fun to watch though, what about ngannou though? for me he has much more potiential then lewis, he hasent really been exposed yet like lewis and don't really know what hes capable of

Shit right now Cain isn't very elite either...dude's hurt 24-7...it's like a ball of giant potential being wasted right in front of our eyes. He's fought twice since 2013...Fucking SUCKS!!

I have the same feeling. He had problematic fight with Browne, just because he's more agile guy.

I see him as killer fighter because of the cannon he has in hands, but look at JDS, Miocic... they are another level for Lewis... at least now!
