Neither Brendan Schaub nor Joe Rogan have mentioned anything about a UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz fight companion podcast for tonight’s event, so I figure there will not be one. I’m not sure if Joe is working the event or not now that Kenny Florian has been suspended by Fox Sports for plagiarism.
We have a great card tonight with a few interesting fights mixed in among some that I couldn’t care less about. The fights of note include T.J. Dillashaw vs. Dominick Cruz for the bantamweight UFC title, former Bellator lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez vs. former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, heavyweights Travis Browne vs. Matt Mitrione, Patrick Cote vs. Ben Saunders, Daron Cruickshank vs. Paul Felder, and Tim Boetsch vs. Ed Herman.
If you’re a cable cutter like me who doesn’t have cable or satellite television access to watch the fights live, check out Unlocator. This service will unlock the blacked out fights in your Fight Pass account, allowing you to live stream everything for free. Unlocator is key to watching everything live in UFC Fight Pass. If you’ve ever seen that “Blacked Out” message when you’ve gone to watch live fights in Fight Pass, Unlocator will eliminate that restriction and open everything up so you can watch the fights live. It’s a great service and registering helps support this website, so give the seven-day free trial a whirl tonight.
DraftKings is also a sponsor of this site, so if you’ve ever considered betting on fights but didn’t due to legal reasons or simply because it’s too confusing, DraftKings solves both issues. Just pay a small $3 fee to enter the MMA $45K Haymaker contest, then pick who you think will win along with when and how, then rack up points as the fights take place. The higher you score out of the other 17,241 players, the more money you win. First place gets $3,000 and the person who comes in 3,525th place gets $6. If you’re new to DraftKings, use my referral link and the $3.00 entry fee is waived and you can play for free. It’s fun, it’s free if you use my link, and you can win some money.
Enjoy the fights!
