    Vettori should shut up and beat a top guy .... he’s trying to skip the line because he isn’t confident.....that’s why he acts like a 10 year old bully

    Dry hump a fighter to a decision that got dominated his last fight the same way doesn't call for a title shot

    Vettori is 10X the fighter that Whittaker is. Marvin would never lose to Wonderboy.

    The top guy he was supposed to fight injured himself . Vettori took what was available to him on ten days notice. In a post fight interview said he believes Whittaker is the other guy elegible for the title shot if he beats Gastelum.
    Anyway why is Till with a 1/1 record at MW ranked #5?

    Whittaker deserves a rematch a hell of a lot more than Vettori does.

    Thinking of names. Is Hagler the best Marvin? What is the most common first name in MMA history? Mark or Matt would be my guess.

    Vettori’s fight with Adesanya was much closer than Whittaker vs Adesanya.

    Winner of Whittaker vs Gastelum gets the title shot; Vettori fights the loser and if he wins then he gets the next title shot.

    If they ever fought I think Rob would knock Vettori out.. that is a terrible matchup for Marvin imo

    Vettori beat Hermansson and Holland who had just failed the Derek Brunson test.

    Whittaker beat Till who is higher ranked than Holland, Cannonier in a title eliminator (not to mention Cannonier obliterated Hermansson who is by far Vettori's best win), and if he beats Gastelum on top of that then there's no way he should be denied a title shot.

    After what Adesanya did to Rob I have zero interest in a rematch, Vettori is far more interestng challengue for Adesanya but at the same time I would not mind Vettori beating a top 5 guy like Rob, Costa or Canon to solidify his TS

    In fairness Cannonier was losing the Hermansson fight prior to the KO
