UFC 241 was actually pretty good. @Chilibowl68 This was a pretty damn great card.Holy shit. Miocic just did the damn thing. What a KO.Problem with Masvidal vs. Nate is that I like to keep my cult figures away from each other.Tell you what, the UFC is a lot more fun with Nate Diaz in it.Return of the 209 coming up next
