If you’re looking to watch some fights on a Saturday night, chances are, the UFC has got you covered. Saturday, August 17th will be no different, or will it? 2019 has been a huge year for UFC in terms of business; expanding overseas with new Performance Institutes, launching events into new territories and introducing the sport to new cultures. With many lackluster events in the already 27 cards this year, how will the 28th fair?
With most cards this year following the recipe of decent headlining fight sprinkled in with what seems like a hodgepodge of who the casual fan would say, “Who is that guy?” There have been some bright spots, but for the most part it has been a pretty stagnant year for the UFC.
With 3 fights that could probably be main events in their own right, the UFC 241 has opted to follow a different route this time. With a stacked card full of grudge matches, there are a lot of ‘what if’s’ surrounding the fights.
If DC wins will he retire or face Jones? If Miocic wins is he going to seek out a rubber match? Will Nate have ring rust after 3 years away from the cage? And who wins the Adonis award in the Romero-Costa fight? Hopefully, a card to remember in a sea of forgettable ones.
