Top-10 Viewing Options: A man who is so delighted he doesn’t have to see awful political ads for a while will enjoy not seeing Mike Kelly’s creepy mannequin face for a while.
1. UFC Fight Night: Korean Zombie vs. Rodriguez: If Chan Sung Jung is on your television or streaming device, and your eyes aren’t glued to that gentleman, that’s on your ass.
2. OneFC: Heart of The Lion: If Angela Lee vs. Xiong Jing Nan was still on, you could have easily made a case for this card getting the top spot. Absolutely loaded.
3. Oleksandr Usyk vs. Tony Bellew/Anthony Crolla vs. Daud Yordan: Between the WBSS and Usyk, this weekend belongs to the cruiserweights.
4. Mairis Briedis vs. Noel Gevor/Krzysztof Glowacki vs. Maksim Vlasov: Season Two of the Cruiserweight World Boxing Super Series rolls on in quarterfinal action.
5. KASAI Pro 4: Banger of a tournament, and the superfights solid, too. Prestige BJJ, so hot right now.
6. Legacy Fighting Alliance 53: An absolute banger of a flyweight title fight, and lord knows the UFC needs flyweights after their trade of De–nope, can’t talk about it, still too goddamned furious. Fuck you, Dana.
7. Absolute Championship Berkut 90: Hell again, old friend. Smartly, they got their own PPV service, which is great for them, but damn, miss them throwing everything live on YouTube. But still, three bucks is a damned bargain to watch ACB.
8. Fight To Win Pro 93: Ol’ reliable. High-level matchups, gives eyeballs to young grapplers all over the country, decent pay, performance bonuses. I talk up F2W all the time, but they really should be supported.
9. World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation: Hendricks vs. Ward: Johny went downhill fast. Credit that to USADA or just age and wear/tear, but we’ll see if he has anything remaining in that left hand.

10. Boom Cups Celebrity Boxing Showdown: Hoopz vs. Nat D: I was promised Farrah Abraham getting starched, and this will simply not suffice.
4×5: Every week, UCS’s Luke Irwin will list his Top-5 bouts in each of the four major different combat sports that he’s looking forward to the most, regardless of any conventional criteria, merit, or logic.
