    I'm struggling to see Chiesa even winning a round here, but my brother thinks Chiesa might be able to bully RDA with his size advantage.

    I got RDA via being better everywhere in my opinion. Who do you guys got?

    Chiesa for some reason keeps improving could be a sub in order

    Dunno really, RDA has a problem with people who push forward and want to grapple. Lee was winning until he gassed out.

    Maybe Chiesa can win first two rounds but I think RDA should just keep distance and trash him on the feet.

    Will be an interesting fight, kinda a flip coin for me. Old RDA would murder Chiesa but this one....

    Rooting for RDA, believing Chiesa will outgrapple him.

    Chiesa looked huge as hell. I was thinking rda, but after weigh ins I’m going chiesa for sure. Looks like MW vs LW

    I think RDA would whoop Chiesa on the mat. The only place I see Chiesa maybe having success is against the cage, but I don't think he has the wrestling to do what guys like Lee, Colby, and Usman have done.

    I believe so too but RDA sometimes just gets stuck against the fence and kinda forgets he can move away. Hoping he can win but who knows which RDA will show up.

    I put money on RDA, he’s only recently lost to Usman, Covington, and Leon Scott. Chiesa is no where near that level of competition.

    I did wanna bet on Chiesa to make more money in my parlay but I just can’t risk it

    I’m a closet Chiesa fan. I guess I tend to like fighters who aggressively hunt submissions, and who are underappreciated.

    Also picking RDA though, because I don’t feel that Chiesa has the durability to take the punishment that RDA deals out. Chiesa will come forward, as always, straight onto RDA’s firepower.

    Chiesa us hugely underrated on this forum because he acted like a bit of a douche at times but the guy has great grappling and he is slick af. RDA is a force but idk, i think chiesa is going to take some punishment then clinch and take him down and sub him with something super nasty.

    RDA by whatever he wants. I could see him applying pressure early and winning it, unless he wants to prolong the fight and have the chance to get subbed or something.
