Last Night was a star making night for the UFC. The promotion has had a great run the last couple of months after rough start to 2017. Tobin explains why Max Holloway and Francis Ngannou took big steps to stardom by meeting and exceeding expectations. Surprises and underdog stories are always fun one-offs but stars are made by doing what is expected of you. Did Max Holloway get himself in the Conor McGregor sweepstakes?Francis Ngannou vs Stipe Miocic may be the biggest heavyweight fight since Brock Lesnar was a true active heavyweight. Eddie Alvarez vs Justin Gaethje lived up the billing as a fight of the year candidate. The wins by Eddie Alvarez and Holloway speak to Conor McGregor's greatness. Georges St-Pierre is out indefinitely with coloitis. The UFC should make him vacate the 185lbs title. When does Conor have to vacate the lightweight belt. Dana White says Demetrious Johnson vs T.J. Dillashaw is '100% happening' Tobin explains why it's better for everyone if it's Mighty Mouse going up in weight rather than T.J. going down to flyweight. Plus picks for Vasyl Lomachenko vs Guillermo Rigondeaux.
