Words and things, mostly words.
This was certainly a big improvement over the last pay-per-view, UFC 234, but I still felt a little underwhelmed after the show was over. I’d give the show, as a whole, the grade of “strong B.” The co-main was a one-sided drubbing that still managed to be unexciting; the main event was decent, but after a while it got a bit boring as we all watched Jon Jones play with his food.
I wrote my pre-fight (link | link) / post-fight (link | link) columns for both of those fights, and said pretty much everything else in this edition of Fight Notes (link). I don’t want to complain too much, it was still a good show, it just had the potential to be a bit more violent and exciting.
