Host commentator

There was plenty of partisan support for Al Iaquinta in New York tonight against Bobby Green, maybe he’s even sold a few of them houses in his ‘other job’ in real estate. But Green, hands low, oozing confidence, finished it in the very first round with a crisp 1-2. 

The major news from the pre-lims was Ian Garry backing up all the hype and all the talk that the next big Irish sensation has arrived. He took to the octagon like a duck to water with a first round KO to make a real statement. 

Welcome aboard to tonight’s UFC 268 coverage – I will be deliriously navigating my way through this belting card into the wee hours of the morning. The main card kicks off in around an hour but before then, we’ll be bringing you all the build-up and major stories from the pre-lims.
