    Interesting that he mention "sign the contract". I think the ball is in Yair's court now.

    This took an odd turn. Very convenient for Giga, but I don't like his chances here.

    That's assuming the fight even takes place.

    I'll be surprised if Rodriguez accepts that fight.

    Yair didn't deserve the Holloway fight anyway, this is a pivotal point for him, he NEEDS to take this fight

    Nothing to gain & everything to lose for Yair. I hope he takes it but if I was him I would wait for Max unless Max needs major surgery.

    I hope he takes it but it makes sense for him to wait for Max if it isn't a long wait. If it is, he should take it.

    Yair was probably gonna pull out of the Holloway fight 2 weeks out.

    I have a hard time seeing him take this fight.

    Hard fight for Yair, he most likely won't take it and he may develop a sudden injury as well. Giga is a high level kickboxer, he'll be able to keep up with Yair's kicking game.

    Giga seems good but he hasn't shown me anything to make me want to pick him over Yair Rodriguez.

    We all know Yair is about to fracture his ankle any moment right now.

    Styles makes fights and he would be comfortable with a kicker like Yair with no take down threat or high level boxing.

    Sure styles make fights, but I haven't seen nearly enough from Giga to suggest to me he's better than Yair in this style.

    Granted yair is risking alot in that fight--he really needs to step up and show the world he still has any value

    I think he has to take the fight or forever have his balls questioned

    He's been notorious for pulling out of fights. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. I doubt he fights under to save a card.
