    Rumble was taking it easy on him, he could of dropped him if he wasn't throwing 10% of his power

    lol, gotta love that, especially how it may seem like they throw some strikes hard but in reality they are both going very light compared to what they can do (obviously)


    Rumble spars like I do but with less kicks, tricky shit and feints. Even though he sticks to meat and potatoes for his fights, I'm surprised he basically downgrades his style heavily for sparring.

    Rumble looks tired in their. Looks like he could use a 5 hr energy.

    Rumble is power not a precision striker. His strengths can't really be used in sparring, and even if he did, he is no where near as technical or fast as style bender. I'm not thoroughly convinced the hype is justified just yet, but tonight's fight should tell us a lot. I think he should win the fight, but I'm not betting on it because I haven't seen enough of his grappling. That said if Kelvin tries to brawl he will look bad.

    Rumble is power and not a precision striker? I mean it may not look like it but he does pick his shots thats what a precision striker does.

    But my moneys on gastelum tonight. If gastelum loses i'm going to send some weird shit to his gym and put it under his name, as punishment.

    Rumble is a pretty technical and precise striker. His kicks, slips, parries, punches, footwork are all on point. He's actually one of the best strikers in mma history. Never been rocked by strikes is powerful as fuck and explosive with quick reflexes.

    So what are you sending? Reach was too much tonight, Kelvin looked good early but couldn't connect enough. Wasn't it like 9" reach advantage for adesanya? That's nuts.
