I know it's early days, but UFC 270 was a cool loving PPV and I'm nominating it for Best Show of the Year, cool card with some great matches from the prelims up to the great co-main and the extremely fun and hilarious main event.

Especially because it included:

Ngannou won a unanimous decision by scores of 49-46, 48-47 and 48-47, which means 2/3 judges had the fight tied going into the final round, and up to that point in said round Gane had landed multiple combinations and taken Ngannou down in comparison to Ngannou's nothing, so it can be safely assumed that he was ahead in round five and had he either maintained top control, returned to the feet or basically done anything except let Ngannou get back on top of him, would have won a split decision.

i donít speak french so i canít confirm, but iíve seen a number of folks saying ganeís corner advice after the 4th was mistranslated and they were actually telling him he was behind and needed to go for the finish, which, if true, kinda explains the heel hook and redirects a lot of the blame towards his coaches.
