My son would say that the UFC 223 pre-fight presser was lit! His old man would have to agree. Khabib Nurmagomedov had real disdain and heat with Tony Ferguson. However, he doesn’t have the same thing with Max Holloway. Their dynamic isn’t personal and is strictly business, but it is very entertaining.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Rose Namajunas are also completely different from the first time they fought. After Joanna lost by TKO to Rose, Joanna seems to be more focused and a lot more respectful. She didn’t get in Rose’s face and try the head games like she usually does. Rose was her usual focused self and kept everything short and to the point.
The spirited nature between all four combatants was fantastic to see and will no doubt spill over into Saturday nights UFC 223 PPV card.
