Top-10 Viewing Options: The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo are going to throw hands and legs with abundance.

 

  1. UFC 263: Two title fights top the UFC’s return to PPV, including a the rematch to the firefight that was Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno.

  2. Jeremiah Nakathila vs. Shakur Stevenson/Jose Pedraza vs. Julian Rodriguez: Shakur’s always worth a watch, even though his matchup is a joke. Pedraza-Rodriguez should be fun, though.

  3. Bellator 260: A one-fight card, but a Douglas Lima title fight is always worth your time.

  4. Jeremias Nicolas Ponce vs. Lewis Ritson/Edy Valencia Mercado vs. Thomas Patrick Ward: Ritson and Ponce are battling an an IBF 140lbs eliminator, so there are real stakes, here.

  5. ONE: Full Blast II: Decent card, not TNT-worthy, but alright.

  6. Evolve Ur Game 2: EUG comes back with its second offering, featuring a 170lb grand prix.

  7. iKON Fighting Federation 7: One of the best and most famous female boxers in the world, Amanda Serrano, fights on Roy Jones Jr’s iKON.

  8. The Monster: Naoya Inoue: ESPN really needs to put more muscle behind Inoue, as he may be the most exciting fighter in the world, any discipline.

  9. All-Access: Charlo vs. Montiel: Awesome to see All-Access return.

  10. Official Celebrity Boxing: Lamar Odom vs. Aaron Carter: With Peter Gunz vs. Cisco Rosado as the co-main!

 

Bold, Yet Probably Fruitless Predictions: A man who was one hour away from betting that Mayweather and Paul went the distance wonders what would have been with his newfound riches.
