This week’s UFC card is a bit of a weird one. Plagued by injuries and fight cancellations in the main event, it’s gone Miami to Sunrise, FL, and from ESPN to ESPN+. In the main event Jacare Souza (who replaced Paulo Costa) will take on Jack Hermansson (who replaced Yoel Romero). Throw yet another totally unwarranted co-main event spot for infamous NFL washout Greg Hardy and some thrilling action bouts, and it’s a card that feels like a strange collection of highs and lows.
