This is a unique week in which we have two UFC cards on back-to-back nights. In the past, this has happened twice a year, once in July for International Fight Week and once in Nov/Dec. The reason for the back to back events in the TUF finale is a full fight card on Friday night and a bigger card is usually scheduled for the next night on Saturday. This breakdown is going to be a little shorter, as Tyler and I are working overtime trying to get all the tape study done for both cards. I will have an article our for the TUF 28 Finale once the DK prices drop and weigh-ins are done also.
For a more extensive breakdown of each fight on this card, please listen to the podcast.

The Main Event: Tai Tuivasa $7.9K vs Junior dos Santos $8.3K
Tuivasa is at home and Iâ€™m not sure why dos Santos would take this fight. There are plenty of cards in Brazil and dos Santos can get a home fight at any time. I have this fight as a pick em. Both guys have clear paths to victory and come with some concerns. Tuivasa finished the two weakest fighters heâ€™s faced but was not able to finish Arlovski and that worries me. Junior dos Santos is a seasoned veteran of the sport and can use the same game plan that won him a decision win versus Blagoy Ivanov and box him up for five rounds. This fight is stackable in cash and both guys are playable in GPPs. I havenâ€™t decided if Iâ€™m going to stack in cash yet.
