With three title fights, an absolutely stacked (if recently somewhat less so) undercard, and all the prestige and history of Madison Square Garden behind it, UFC 205 doesn’t exactly have to make the hard sell to earn your attention and/or money this weekend. It’s already broken the gate and attendance records for MSG, if Conor McGregor is to be believed, and will likely outdo McGregor’s UFC 202 bout against Nate Diaz as the highest-selling UFC pay-per-view of all time.
That being said, there is still some 7 hours before UFC 205 actually gets underway, and what am I supposed to do, just sit here playing toucbutt in the meantime? Yeah, nahhh. I think watching a compilation of awesome fights featuring the fighters of UFC 205 sounds like a much better idea, don’t you? Glad we’re on the same page.
There are few fighters in the UFC today with a more inverse proportion of cuteness to deadliness thank Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Maybe Sage Northcutt. The Polish striker may stand just 5’3″ and weigh less than Dwayne Johnson’s average bowel movement, but it cannot be understated just how many terrifying and unimaginable things she would be capable of doing to anyone one of us whether we liked it or not. Don’t believe me? Watch how she handled herself against “Thug” Rose Namajunas in her last bout. Watch how she digs her knees into her Namajunas’ torso again and again and try not to puke. Watch her eat punches like a goddamn cyborg. She will steal your heart with an adorable wink one minute and steal your soul the next.
