UFC Fight Night 108 is getting loads of buzz for all the wrong reasons.
Simply going down the list of names on this card is enough to pique the interest of hardcore MMA fans.
Exciting veterans Joe Lauzon, Diego Sanchez and Eddie Wineland are all set for potentially enthralling scraps, and a total of six former title contenders will punch cards and faces on Saturday night. It isn’t just old favorites, either, as intriguing up-and-comers like Brandon Moreno, Cindy Dandois and Stevie Ray will all get the chance to build their resumes.
So what’s the problem? Well, many are less than thrilled that the main event happens to be a contest between featherweight top-10 staple Cub Swanson and Conor McGregor’s buddy, Artem Lobov. While there is certainly a discussion to be had about a fighter with a 13-12-1 (1) record headlining a UFC event, this still shakes out to be solid card on the sheer volume of name-brand fighters.
But while much of the MMA world goes back and forth over bout order, the Bleacher Report MMA predictions team is here to discuss the contests and who is going to win them.
