    I'm sorry, he said on MMA Hour that he doesn't look like Jon Jones, but I think he does. He's just honest, should be a good fight.

    Good that someone is willing to fight Adesanya so we dont have to wait for so long to see him again.

    Meh, best thing I can say about Vettori is he has a good chin. We'll see how it holds up against Adesanya

    Much better matchup than Theodorou. A tailor-made opponent for an exciting fight.

    Vettori will probably be trying to dive on takedowns. Adesanya hopefully by tko, but I wouldn't mind seeing Theodorou's shitty striking vs Adesanya. It would be like target practice.

    Marvin is a good young fighter but he isnt ready for Israel. This is a missmatch from Size to Skills.

    I want to see as much of the Style Bender as I can, glad he's getting back in the octagon quickly. This is shaping up to be a violent card!

    I like how he's fight in quick succession. Thats what made Conor famous. Take lessons Till and other fighters who are all afraid to lose so dont fight and hold spot.

    I really liked what I’ve seen of Vettori. Shame that Stylebender will be using him as a springboard.

    A black guy with a kickboxing background gets compared to a black guy with a wrestling background.
