Oi, fella! UFC is in Dublin, Ireland for a Fight Pass-only card. This means if you live in the US, these fights are not intended for you, but since we’re all weirdos, let’s talk about these afternoon fights that are giving us the excuse to get day drunk and type cusses into the Internet! Before the quick breakdown, please check out the Official With Leather Staff Predictions and Analysis, and hey, throw your two pence of how the fights are going to go down in the comments.
The prelims will be starting at 12:30PM ET. We’ve got Cathal Pendred trying to prove he deserves to be as hyped as he was on TUF, Ilir Latifi will be fighting a dude who’s pulling an Ilir Latifi (Taking a fight short notice with little prospect of winning), but most importantly, we get the return of The Al Capone, Nikita Krylov!
The main card is going to be at 3:00PM ET, again, on Fight Pass. Other than the first fight, I’m honestly looking forward to everything on this portion of the event. Ian McCall and Brad Pickett should have a fun as hell flyweight bout, With Leather favorite Gunnar Nelson is going to run through Zak Cummings, and in the main event, talkative, unintelligible well-dressed Conor McGregor takes on the crazy as cat shit Diego Brandao. Will Diego pen-stab Conor before the fights? That would suck, but also be kind of funny.
