Zane Simon & Mookie Alexander break down this week’s UFC 232 main card in Inglewood, CA — with Connor Ruebusch reappearing for the prelims Vivi.

The UFC finishes 2018 in true UFC fashion... a great PPV event that’s somehow still neck deep in punishing fans and fighters to make the bottom line happy. Jon Jones is still fighting Alexander Gustafsson, despite more drug test trouble, and Cris Cyborg is taking on her most dangerous opponent in bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes. All that on top of a card that promises top-to-bottom action fights, and even the promise of picking out a couple potential future top contenders.
