It’s the day before the Fight, and all through day and night…
I wait anxiously with glee, to think of how grand it will be…
Every punch/kick/dodge and squeeze, will have us asking for more please…
I can’t shake how excited i am about UFC 205, in my opinion the BEST FIGHT CARD EVER!
Madison Square Garden will showcase UFC fighters from all over the world including 3 championship fights and much more throughout the night.But also know that with all the talk about the fighters, the UFC brass should be praised for contributing in getting MMA competition legalized in New York. It was a long fought battle that ultimately allowed the UFC to create this beast of a card. Also note, that the Main Event has one guy from Philly and the other from Ireland… History is pouring our of everywhere and the excitement is palpable.
I expect that this card will shatter many records for both seats and PPV. But before we go on about the numbers let’s go through the card and i’ll give you my official picks!
