Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back to breakdown this week’s UFC event in Las Vegas, NV. With picks and odds for every fight on the PPV. From Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou in the main event down to Abu Azaitar vs. Marc-Andre Barriault in the opening prelim.

It started out as a pretty decent PPV. But by the time fight night comes around UFC 260 feels a lot more like a seriously diminished product. The main event, between Francis Ngannou and Stipe Miocic still feels like a big fight. But Tyron Woodley vs. Vicente Luque and Sean O’Malley vs. Thomas Almeida aren’t quite carrying the hype the way they might have a couple years ago.
