UFC FIGHT NIGHT: WHITTAKER VS. GASTELUM FIGHT PICKS

WE ARE BACK and READY to MAKE MONEY! After riding a hot 4-1 stretch on the last UFC main card, we look to keep the hot hand rolling. We have 11 fights coming at you tonight in the octogon.

Not only that, but the Jake Paul/Ben Askren celebrity card also kicks off tonight. A night that includes a boxing match between a Billionaire and a Reggaeton Singer, a debut music performance from a Snoop Dogg/Ice Cube led Supergroup, and finally capped off with the Main Event of Ben Askren (a real life professional fighter and former Olympian) vs. Jake Paul (a YouTuber who has trained boxing for 3 years and just knocked out an undersized basketball player). Should be a very ONLINE night, big night for Twitter on this one.

But before the Askren/Paul fight, we have the real reason you are reading this blog… the UFC.

Here’s a look at the full fight card:
