Khabib will get it done in 2-4 rounds I’d say, leaning more towards a submission than a TKO. Will be interesting to see exactly how good Gaethje’s TD defense and wrestling is though.

Whittaker/Cannonier is a very interesting fight where I have no idea how it’s going to play out, would love Reaper to win and think he’s a genuine chance but Cannonier is a beast at MW. Whoever wins taking on Izzy should be a great fight too, Whittaker looks heaps better since the lay-off and I’m sure the rematch wouldn’t go down the same way. 10 rounds against Romero then the long run of injuries/health issues is enough to break anyone, he seems in an entirely better place now.

Harris/Volkov and Tuivasa/Struve are the other fights I’m extremely keen to see. Should be a great card, can’t wait to get up early in the A.M. to watch it.

My understanding is that there’s no athletic commission over there like usual in u.s or anywhere else.

Effectively the ufc are running the regulations and what not.

yeah boi.

This fight I'm on Stefan. Hope I'm wrong but I just don't rate Tai.

Remember 12 months ago when some no name guy mauled him @ 7s or 8s?

Stefan is smart enough to train and aim for wrestling. Surely.

Tai has been training with AKA recently, so whatever happens with career at least he's realised he's got to stop taking the pose and also not stubborn enough to get help elsewhere.

Struve won 1 out of this last 5, so at least it's not a massive stretch for him.

Well I was wrong. Stefan stands up with Tai and gets put down.

I want to bet on the underdog but this is the damned fool who was so keen to fake punch drunk that he got stopped by the ref.

fu** it I'll bet on this idiot anyway, if he gets done, then I'm an idiot too. An idiot betting on an idiot.

Bam Bam went Bam.
Man, that was one big oak tree he had to cut down.
Looked like security guys got scared Tai was going to do some crazy ass sh*t after fight like Khabib did when he jumped out of the cage.

damn that was brutal. Ref a little slow to stop it
After last time, who was stopping this early? Nobody.

There's a tenner I'm never seeing again, my own fault.

Cutalaba (sp?) seems fit and strong but completely outclassed, just asking for the straight left. Oh well.

Impressive from Murphy. Seemed a weight class bigger than her opponent. Good on the feet and a nice submission.

Really cute thank you speech as well. Genuine.

Another tenner gone.

I'm on Malkoun for the next fight. Two fights ago he won in the 'Wollongong Wars' lol.

Really interested in this ufc debut for Jacob malkoun, training partner of bobby knuckles.

Meant to be pretty high level but I think it’s almost impossible to really prep yourself to be ready for the ufc, i liken it to nbl to nba.
