    Yeah I was wondering the same. Are they pushing the start to 7eastern/6 pm central for the early prelims? Or even a half hour later than that? Or they'll start at 5:30 central and there will be insanely long breaks between fights maybe?

    Edit: Going by the start time for the DK contests, they pushed the start time for the early prelims to 7 eastern/6 central.

    Says the guy threw away bet 4 units on Edgar last week. Anywho, I will admit that I came into tape initially looking to bet Grasso. However, there were some very concerning things I noticed that makes the fight against Barber very dangerous for her, and not because of grappling.

    I can't bet Barber either, since I have no clue if she finally fixed basic flaws that have been dogging her for many fights, and how her full ACL reconstruction went.

    The sherdog play by play says 7:30 eastern time. It was originally 7 eastern before this fight got cancelled

    Interesting, would it be clinch game? Grasso's range striking actually looks very advanced by WMMA standards to me. In tight there's some issues and I suppose vs an ultra aggressive fighter like Barber, stylistically it might be a concern. But Grasso absolutely looks far more polished.

    ACL reconstruction has come so damn far. Mine was a decade ago and even since then they've made big improvements (and they'd made huge improvements in the decade leading up to mine because my buddy tore his 10 years before I did). And with Barber being so young, I have to think the knee will be fine...but I guess you never know.

    With all the Covid cancellations it's anyone's guess when cards start now.

    Not saying I want to illegally stream a PPV because that would be against the TOS and the law but if I were doing a social experiment on how it works, I sure am curious as to where to begin. Feel free to message me if you have any ideas and hats off to research, the true benchmark of any good society - also no chance I pony up 70 bucks for this shit show

    I don't think you were wrong, Bendo.
    Usman didn't looked for that finish, it just presented itself. It's not in his game. He is super cautious - you saw it, he didn't want to engage in the ground game even for a second and he did let go Burns off the hook a couple of times when he was stunned.

    It was a good gameplan. Lot of people thought Burns is the better striker. Yeah, for a round he is. Too much dynamic stuff ain't conducive to win down the road.

    I'd like say that I was wrong about the Heinisch fight. Yeah, he maybe won a round, but he didn't look like the value play I thought he is, even at his odds. I think we'll have other opportunities to fade Kelvin. He didn't show much in this fight. He's slowing down and his game hasn't developed at all since forever.
