    Good fight, I remember this got scheduled last year, but Burns came in too fat.

    I want OAM to win, but I think Burns is a tough fight for him.

    GSP vs Holloway at 155 lbs would be a great main event.

    Its a good fight for GSP's legacy, in Canada, to prove he can make 155, and with a victory fight the 155 champ eventually.

    Max would have to vacate the 145 belt so he would need the same ppv points he had as 145 champ. Kind of a gamble but if he beats GSP he will absolutely be in line for 155 title shot where he would have the opportunity to enter the GOAT discussion.

    Ortega can fight Moicano or Mendes or Aldo for the cvacant belt.

    Mercier's distended muscular belly is disturbing

    Still think Burns is one of Khabib's more interesting matchups.

    Good fight between two guys I thought could make something happen in the top 15 but got stopped before they were given that big step up. The winner is likely still right there in the running for a ranked opponent. The loser is definitely getting knocked down the ladder.

    I'll take Burns. Decision.

    Those are some spartan abs dude. Man abs. A muscular beer belly.

    In my next life, when I have abs, I am picking one of those.

    burns is one of the most overrated fighters on the entire roster. His only good win is a comeback over a short notice oliveira.

    OAM should take it via superior boxing.

    Lol at dudes pretending they know who tf Gilbert Burns even is. This is what the UFC has come to I guess. Just like the Guentzelwtf dude who sucked but beat the way over the hill Joe Lauzon in his most recent fight.

    Dude after dude up here talking about how good he was here and there and they knew all along.

    Burns Sounds like one of the generic fighters the computer would randomly generate, with blue hair and a ying yang tattoo on his chest that you'd have to fight in the career mode of one of the old UFC undisputed games.
