As always with the Care/Don't Care preview -- the caveat -- no disrespect is intended to the fighters. This isn't a commentary on the skill, heart or entertainment potential of any fighter, just a commentary on the UFC's marketing of said fighters and whether or not any anticipation has been built for the fight.

Today Kid Nate and Eugene discuss:

  • The painfully early start time of this event
  • Cares are given then retracted for Ron Stallings amidst accusations of know-nothing-sim
  • Blind love for (presumably) Dagestani fighters
  • The fall of Gray Maynard....or is Michael Thomas Brown worse off?
  • Dustin Poirier at light weight
  • Eugene's big plans to exploit the homeless and make a fortune
  • Clay Guida at the end of his rope?
  • How to pronounce Peña.
  • Technical difficulties
  • "Game-bred" Jorge Masvidal, friend of Knuckle Up, against Al Iaquinta, Long Island's own
  • Mendes vs Lamas in a truncated discussion
  • More technical difficulties and some "who's logged out" fiascos
  • Not much more!

Enjoy!
