Bloody Elbow Presents


Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of seven bouts on the 12-bout UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 Preliminary Card. "It’s not, perhaps the most electric main card that the UFC has ever put together for a PPV, but it is a fantastic event from top to bottom. Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2 feels like a big chance for both men to prove where they are atop the lightweight division. Dan Hooker seems like a distinct challenge for Octagon newcomer Mike Chandler. And Matt Frevola vs. Ottman Azaitar should be an absolute banger." - Zane Simon Sign up for the ESPN+ PPV and watch #UFC257: #MCGREGORVSPOIRIER2 #SUPERFIGHT - JAN 23rd. 2021 // #UFCAPEX // http://go.web.plus.espn.com/c/482924/595608/9070?sharedid=BloodyElbow For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which airs at 2pm Central today, Thurs., January 21st., 2021, right here on our SC channel.
