Ok wtf is going on with the UFC signing so many fighters lately?

Its been about 10 or more fighters so far this year!

Look to be bolstering the MW division with this great signing, tho i thought Salaverry was retiring? Instead they are using him to lose to the new guy, past his best is Ivan

should be a good fight. I like Ivan but he's way past his prime so I think Palhares will most likely get him

I really want Ivan to win but I don't know if he can in this fight. It's true the UFC is making a lot of signings this year.

Salaverry should win this fight.

I'm personally glad that Salaverry didn't actually end up retiring, I enjoy his fight style.

i think palhares will submit him, glad to see the ufc sign alot of fighters who are not well known, hopefully there will be at least one star out of all of them
