    As @Slaw said, he’d seen a family member, something he apparently told the officials and they isolated him best they could. Still had him out at the face offs etc which isn’t great.

    Realy hope they’ve contained it. Because if more people in the hotel get it it’ll blow up in UFC’s face.

    On a brighter note and despite being baffled it’s happening, I’m buzzing for tonight. It’ll be surreal to watch.

    Absolutely no need for all the fist bumps and hand shakes.. so needless.

    Bryce Mitchell is a * animal, seen his last 3 fights and loved him, Rosa looked * lost and he has high level BJJ. He is going to the top if he keeps going like this.

    Should be a cracking card.

    8/1 for that to be fight of the night, main event likely beat it but still think that’s a great bit, neither guy has a boring fight

    That was insane and Mitchell looked absolutely incredible. Fantastic start to the night.

    The judging in this sport is nothing short of disgraceful.

    Werdum is heavy as *. Never seen him that chubby. Getting * here by a submission expert too.

    Thought Cowboy won that tbh, not a robbery by any means but thought he won it. Think judges have been a bit suspect as usual
