Some of us are a little TOO pumped for UFC 280

Let’s face it, Charles Oliveira vs. Islam Makhachev seems like a heck of a fight for the “vacant” UFC lightweight title. Factor in that this event goes down in the middle of a Saturday afternoon (can’t argue with mid-day fights!) and the UFC has efficiently increased our hunger by feeding us a steady diet of garbage Fight Nights in recent weeks and we are pumped. Are we actually a little bit TOO pumped?
