    Hmm. I guess. I would have preferred Manuwa vs. Dominick Reyes, but this isn't bad.

    I think matchups like Moraes/Lineker, Barboza/Hooker or JDS/Lewis would have been much better Main Events.

    Who wins?

    Reyes would have been a better fight like you said but it's in Brazil so not sure Reyes vs Jimi really would have been a good move. I'll take Glover by KO. Jimi is chinny so no faith in him.

    Manawa catches him in my opinion. Zzz for Glover.

    Two glass canons going at it. Only Glover is also slow as fuck.

    Glover should never fight again.

    I've always been a fan but he's done.

    Glover looked awful against Corey so I think Chinni should win but Glover catching him wouldn't be shocking

    Oh yeah, I didn't mean on this card per say. I thought Manuwa vs. Reyes would have been a good feature fight for UFC 228. There were much better matchups that could have been made instead of this for Sao Paulo imo.

    This.

    Shocked at the posters picking Glover to win.

    Jimi may be a little chinny, but I think Glover is done. And I'm a Glover fan too, but his time has come.

    Manuwa is too chinny to be trusted

    Doesn't exactly scream next contender... I hope Glover wins regardless.

    Going with Glover here. Manuwa has no chin or offensive wrestling

    Good fight, I hope Manuwa doesn't left hook Glover here. I hope Glover will wrestle from the start.

    Meh Glover seems to be able to take a decent shot and Jimi is inconsistent. I could see Glover controlling him on the ground. I just don't think Jimi is that great tbh.
