UFC 180 Predictions

After watching TUF: Latin America, I feel fairly confident in knowing some of the unknown fighters on the card. The toughest fights to pick on this card for me were Bermudez vs. Lamas, Montano vs. Heatherly, Urbina vs. Garcia, and Briones vs. Cannetti.

Netflix has changed my viewership habits over the years. The ability to watch an entire season of a show within a short period of time is something that appeals to me now. I have skipped the past few TUF International seasons and my interest in anything past TUF 17 has been lacklust. Yet, after buying a ROKU and seeing the UFC Fight Pass app, I have had the opportunity to watch nearly all of TUF: Latin America and TUF 19. TUF: Latin American has really caught my attention because of just how bad the athletes on the show want to be in the UFC. It brings about that rawness of a fighter trying to make it to the big show. The UFC has expanded their roster aggressively in the last ...
