    One of the best UFC cards in a long time this weekend, this will be Khamzat's real litmus test.

    Casey O’Neill outed herself as a Hun. Gutted.

    Been a good card so far. I think Garry is decent but I can't see his wrestling holding up against a Russian.

    For the top 3 fights, I can't see past the favourites. Volk, Yan, & Chimaev.

    Close fight but Yan definitely won, Aljo is a terrible champion.

    Khamzat/Burns was nuts man.

    First time he’s been tested and came out of looking like a star. All that talent and a ridiculous chin into the bargain.

    Should be a big learning curve for him. He didn't really use his wrestling because of how good Burns is on the deck, so he'll have that in his locker against other fighters.

    One thing that concerned me was how easily be got caught by the lead jab, as well as being caught out when he threw 3+ punches in succession without learning from it. Hopefully it's something he addresses next time out.

    Celtic and Michael Conlan welcoming him with open arms. You love to see it.

    Some decent fights this weekend. Chandler vs Tony should be a good scrap.

    Charles Oliveira missed weight and has been stripped of his title.

    Bellator 280 on now on BBC iPlayer. Bader, Romero, and Kongo on the card.

    That was a mauling by Romero.

    He showed him some real pity in round 2.
