UFC Vegas 63 | Prelim Preview
Saturday, October 29th (7:00 PM EST Main Card, 4:00 PM EST Prelims)
Phil Hawes vs. Roman Dolidze
WATCH - Ignore the symmetry of the 4-1 UFC records. The symmetry of their ages and the symmetry of their standings as too-old prospects at the top of the unranked. Both hoping they can survive long enough to get a ranked opponent. None of that stuff matters, this fight is way more than two hopeful journeyman who entered the UFC too late. This fight is the gladiator vs the pillow, one man who swings for the fences vs another who would rather lose than try anything entertaining at all. No amount of recent tomato can crushing will make us forgive Dolidze for his crimes against entertainment!
Andrei Arlovski vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima
BATHROOM BREAK - You wake up from the couch and the fight is over. Split decision victory for Arlovski. They show highlights and it looks like two old men lightly sparring in a gym, but Arlovski is the one walking forward so he wins.
Joseph Holmes vs. Junyong Park
BATHROOM BREAK - Meh/10. The kind of fight you put on since you just remembered the UFC card started already, and because you haven’t started drinking yet it ends up being the fight you remember the most from the entire night regardless of how awful it is.
MMAalgo Bet - Joseph Holmes 3.5u @ +190 (better than -121.6)
FGTDalgo Bet - Fight Does Not Go The Distance 1u @ -110 (better than -111.7)
Chase Hooper vs. Steve Garcia
WATCH - HE’S BACK! Forget the write-up for the fight above this, if you don’t turn the TV on for the Chase Hooper fight you are dead to us. 23 years old and looks like Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim but this young hero is the hero we need! Imanari rolls into a hail mary submission attempt after being down 2 rounds, whipping out ground and pound with his noodle arms, and putting on a show no matter what, who, or when! This is the prospect of all prospects and one day he will fulfill his destiny as featherweight champion of the world!
Cody Durden vs. Carlos Mota
WATCH - The shorter the king the taller the crown. This will be the best fight of the night and non-flyweight lovers will be purged for their heresy.
Christian Rodriguez vs. Joshua Weems
BATHROOM BREAK - Death, taxes, and debuter vs 0-1 kicking off a fight night card. Who doesn’t love UFC bouts that are lower quality than DWCS main events?
