Can KZ still take a beating? Has Yair been solved?
Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back to breakdown this week’s UFC card in Denver, CO. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From Chan Sung Jung vs. Yair Rodriguez in the main event down to Mark de la Rosa vs. Joby Sanchez in the opening prelims.
The UFC’s Denver card may not be much of a tribute to their first ever show, in Denver, 25 years ago. But it’s still a reasonable Fight Night offering, even ravaged by injuries as it has been. Yair Rodriguez vs. Chan Sung Jung promises to be an all-action war, and Cerrone vs. Perry and Pennington vs. GDR provide enough relevance to make the whole card worth the time. That’s more than can be said for a few Fight Nights this year.
