I think this card is overall pretty weak but the main event is awesome. Both major proving grounds for these fighters

If Vera can beat a legend like Cruz, who is still clearly capable and intelligent, then he unlocks fights like an Aldo rematch, Sandhagen, Yan. The upper ranks of the stacked division

If Cruz can beat Vera he unlocks much the same types of matchup and a title shot soon.

I think Vera takes it but it'll be interesting to see

I agree, the main event here is a great matchup. It will be ironic to see Cruz win this and then enter the prime contender space whilst Garbrandt is slipped down the ladder.

I think Vera takes it but it'll be interesting to see

I see it as 50-50 at the moment as I am not sure how Vera deals with Cruz's unorthodox style. It will be really interesting to see tho 😎

Nice watch. Free UFC fight, Vera vs Font (Font recently flatlined Garbrandt)

I know some people get frustrated with Cruz's unorthodox style, personally I love it and his outspoken attitude.

He's got a mountain to climb here.
