yeah ill pop down to my local for this, bit pissed they got Holloway on an intrim there is enough 155 ers to go around. middleweight #1 contender fight should be good. are we at the point were we should just piss off all belts maybe they should just give a medal for all Main events lol

In order to get Holloway to move up they had to offer him a title bout.

Otherwise he would be losing dollars if he moved up and didn't have a title belt. Plus when you have won 13 in a row and put on some truly dominating performances in the weight class below you deserve a shot at the title straight up.

Many of the experts seem to think Adensanya will win convincingly. As well as the bookies. He will have a massive reach advantage.

Kelvin is going to try and get Israel moving backwards from the word go IMO. That 2nd rd of the Anderson fight showed Israel looked a bit exposed when Anderson backed him up and put pressure on him against the fence. Kelvin's hand speed will have Israel in trouble IMO. Kelvin may also eat some shots but he's got a granite chin.

its not a title shot just one of the ones you buy from the Merch stand.

they seem to give them away every other event.

Really? Max is arguably one of the top 3 fighters in the world right now and is also one of the most entertaining to watch. Who else that is available at 155 should get the shot over him? Ferg has his issues right now, McGregor's busy pretending to retire and getting in slanging matches on twitter, Lee's moving up, Al and Cerrone are already booked, Barboza and Gaethje just fought.

Interested to see a lot of guys predicting Kelvin to beat Israel. He's got a punchers chance for sure, but I see this as a bad match up for him. Kelvin will have a lot of ground to cover to get close enough to land his bombs and I think Israel picks him apart for a decision win. Thinking it will look a lot like the Brunson/Adesanya fight just with Kelvin not getting finished or as out of control as what Derek did.

Very intrigued as to what Holloway can do at Lightweight. Recent examples of high calibre fighters moving up weight and doing well bodes well for him.

I love watching Adesanya's fights but I think Gastelum knocks him out.

I hope Gastelum knocks him out.

There is alot of Darren Till about Adesanya

I agree on both counts. Gastelum is a tough fight for anyone, i feel he may just frustrate the hell out of Israel and win by late TKO.

I love Max as much as the next person, but I've got to say that I'd love for Poirier to have that one amazing moment and hold a belt up.
I would love that too but also regalards of who wins i feel we will have three guys running around thinking they are champs. maybe Dana should employ a wwe method and have an intercontinental title, a US title.

Might seem harsh but I don't rate gastelum.that old saying you can only beat who is in front of you is true and he has beaten up the nursing home of old warriors ades is to nimble imo..

The card is so dull outside of max v dustin..

If Gastelum hasnt beaten anyone then Adesanya certainly hasnt beaten anyone.
