    I wont be watching this because I haven't got the UFC fight pass and don't plan to anytime soon, but this one is sort of compelling. Gustafsson is one of the more interesting fighters right now because of his win ov.... I mean close defeat at the hands of Jones. Johnson vs Guillard should be fun too.

    UFC Fight Pass does a 7-day free trial. If you want to do that and then cancel before they charge you, then I would start the cancellation process 3 or 4 days before the trial is over, as the cancellation process requires you to email a customer service rep.

    Absolutely insane that Gustafsson is on a Fight Pass card though after that incredible fight with Jones. This should have been a FOX Sports 1 card, or at least the co-main event of UFC 171. This fight with Manuwa is a proving ground scenario. If Gustafsson wins, he maintains his number 1 contender status, but if Manuwa pulls off the upset he becomes an instant contender.

    Johnson vs. Guillard is a very good fight. Johnson is doing really well right now, but just like Melvin, he can be quite inconsistent.

    Pickett can become a very marketable contender at Flyweight with a couple of impressive wins.

    Gus did want he needed to do and Dana has said he gets the rematch with Jones, if Jones beats Glover.

    This worked out about as well as it could for the UFC. Gus delivers and gets the world talking about him after the fight, and in turn talking about the pass. I am not opposed to the fight pass. I am just disenchanted with the UFC right now. I will be getting 171 though because that card looks pretty great and the main event should deliver some fireworks. It will be a good "have the whole crew over for drinks" card.

    I also love that Jones is talking about Gus fighting DC. I don't really think he is scared, but I don't think he gets his own public image as well as he thinks he does. personally I think between Glover, Gus, and DC... Jones won't be champion this time next year. That is just my guess though.
