    What do you think Whitaker is gonna do to him? This is gonna be one of the most lopsided beat downs we have ever seen.

    Izzy by KO in first round, the layoff Whittaker has taken will be his downfall

    Robert Whittaker is a 170 lb striker who lost to and almost got killed by a middle-aged wrestler.

    Israel sparks him in a pure striking fight.

    Only realistic path for victory for Robert is to mix it up and use offensive wrestling.

    Something tells me that Robert is a much better wrestler than most of us have imagined.

    Gastelums legit imo and Whittaker won’t be enjoying a huge size advantage

    Whittaker got wrecked by the last tall kickboxer he faced, in b4 karate nerds tell me Adesanya and Wonderboy are sooo different in style it has no bearing on the fight.

    Adesanya has finished 2 of his 6 UFC opponents.
    I don't expect Whittaker to be his 3rd.

    Adesanya should have had to beat someone better than fat Kelvin, old Anderson and Brunson to get a title fight. I've no idea how good he is but I suspect Whittaker is better.

    I want Bobby to take it, but I'm honestly not sure. Izzy is slick as fuck.

    Also, why are we pretending that Kelvin is a blown up WW. Dude is super legit, and might have the best boxing at MW.

    Yeah, no way Bobby has improved in any way in the last 5 1/2 years either.

    I could see that. But then again, I think he’ll actually use his wrestling and quite possibly get a few chances to do some gnp. No reason to go high risk and stand the entire fight.

    Hopefully it’s just a really good fight.

    Still wish Kelvin could cut back on the hash browns and get 170. I'd favor him over just about the whole division.
