UFC 223 was the biggest card of 2018 thus far. Then Conor McGregor wanted to let the world know he does whatever he wants, leading to three fights being canceled and a lot of thunder being stolen from the event. It’s a real shame that the actions of one overgrown child resulted in the loss of potential livelihood for five others completely unaffiliated with McGregor’s target.
The removal of Michael Chiesa and Anthony Pettis from the card thanks to the lacerations on Chiesa’s face from the shattered glass leaves the card with two fights. There will be another fight on the main card, but it was unannounced by the time this article was sent in for publishing.

The opener features the controversial Al Iaquinta looking to turn away upstart Paul Felder. Here’s hoping the action produced from these contests can give fans something to talk about other than McGregor.
