A Lightweight match up with the potential to be the most violent in division history goes down inside Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa., this Saturday (March 30, 2019) when Edson Barboza squares off with Justin Gaethje in UFC on ESPN 2’s main event. Fight fans will also get to enjoy a Middleweight bout between David Branch and Jack Hermansson, as well as a Featherweight slugfest between Josh Emmett and Michael Johnson.

Early prelims




Main will hopefully go into the championship rounds, Barboza says he's ready for a 25 minute war, but with him it could end at any point.

This and the ONE Championship event the next day means MMA Overload. Get your fight milk in.

HOT DANG BOI
This card is STACKED. I guess UFC really wants to impress ESPN. This is almost as good as some of the better PPV. Rayborg in in the early prelim(cause he is against a UFC debuter I am assuming) which I know this is their strategy for trying to sell that fight pass.

Side Note: We need our MMA general thread back. Lots of MMA threads popping up lately. I want to see this one.

I don't care where (just far)

My first thought was: "How is this gonna look any different than the Lawler figh?"

I can see it playing out exactly the same. Jorge rocking Ben early, Ben surviving, Ben gets a hold of Jorge and that will be a wrap.

I wouldn't mind seeing Pettis vs Lawler now, though

In like most of Lawlers fights. He gets knocked out to some degree at least once. He Zombies through it and gets wins. I imagine he would just run a train on Pettis though.
