New, 2 comments

The Conor McGregor show is back in town again, and he’s bringing the UFC with him for a decent, but not exceptionally stacked fight card. The Dustin Poirier trilogy fight should be a thriller for however long it lasts, and Gilbert Burns vs. Stephen Thompson promises to be fun. Otherwise, Sean O’Malley getting a promotional newcomer highlights the PPV end of things.
