    same. not sure if that fight order is official, but is urbina from chicago or something? why is urbina v sullivan up at the main card? can't be, right?

    usman-yakovlev better be on the main card.. watch it be some 'featured fight pass' fight..

    Fight card is definitely not official. Can't see ufc.com from my job so not sure if they have an official one yet, but last night they showed Moontasri vs Brazilian Cowboy as the fight pass headliner, and showed Ngannou and Felice on the main card

    I expect a boring main event. Top Boxing champ vs Top Muay Thai champ (which is pretty cool actually - too bad we'd never get it in men's MMA) but both are extreme 'safety first' fighters

    Holm dec 2.20 seems an amazing price for IMO the most likely result
    not Holm ITD 1.43 seems good for a parlay, I see almost no way for Holm to win ITD. I think she will use her size & reach to jab and jog her way to victory
    ...but I might put a little flier on Shevchenko instead

    Holm dec is my play for that fight, agreed on that. Probably will be kind of boring, expecting a complete route by Holm. Don't see anything in Shev's game that leads me to believe she can get inside on Holm.

    Yeah checked fight pass and no ufc fox 20 holm/shev event even listed, hoping coyboy vs moostasri is not the fight pass headliner but would not surprise me.

    Completely agree on holm decision play, think its her first fight back from all the drama and championship loss so she will do what she does best point fight and score her way to safety.

    Expect barboza to do the same also he has mastered that circling footwork and leg kicks for a solid 15 minutes expect him to get a decision and keep melendez majority of the time on the outside maybe melendez edges r1 though.

    Am waiting for someone to say barboza + holm parlay ;)

    i just can't play holm after her last performance. looked like she completely self sabotaged in that fifth round due to a lack of self belief. skills are all there though, no doubt, and shevchenko showed amazing lack of fight iq after being down 2 rounds to nunes and not looking for a finish.

    I actually expect Holm to wrestle offensively in this one. She should be much bigger than shevchenko.

    Holm is no spring chicken and I can def. See her and Jackson looking to take the path of least resistance

    My lean for holm fight is against the back of my chair. I don't expect to be on the edge of my seat for just about any holm fight. Zzz...

    O4.5 prolly hits. Idk.

    I already have 2u on Schevchenko at +330. There is no way she should be that big a dog in this spot. Small striking disadvantage, small grappling advantage. Her cardio seems good for a 5 rounder.

    I can't see that. After getting subbed by a hail mary RNC I believe she's gonna avoid the ground at all costs. SHe's been boxing for two decades. Hard to change a gameplan unless she gets rocked like in the RRR fight where she took her down.

    Played Shev DEC 1U at 7.00. I don't think this fight will be stopped so it's worth a small bet.
