    i got Whittaker by TKO. This is his most favorable matchup since Brunson IMO. Cannonier is better but he doesnt fight in that long range with counters which causes Bobby issues. I think he hurts him with one of those darts or kicks in the pocket, and then finishes him off

    Hopefully Robert makes it to the fight. Fun fight. A win for Jared makes him the #1 contender. If Whittaker wins there’s a solid chance he fights for the belt again. I’m not sure how I see it going.

    Damn Rob.... chill bro. Shoulda taken a fight with Hermansson instead. Will watch, just feel bad for Rob going in there with false confidence from his last win. Cannonier will punish him.
    Yeah the man can crack.

    Jared is a better kicker than Robert, his leg kicks are vicious

    Clear #1 contender fight.

    Izzy, Paulo, Robert, Jared.
    ANY combination involving two of those men is gonna be fireworks.

    MW is on fiiiiire.
    Can't wait.

    Am I the only one who thought Whitaker looked like shit vs Till? I know that was a chess match but Whitaker didnt really shine in that fight at all.

    I think Cannonier wipes him although I want the Reaper to win

    Robert didn't impress me too much last fight, but somehow Till was even worse.

    If Cannonier mixes it up I think he's gonna find a home for his power. Maybe Whittaker can find some success in the standup but darting in got him brutally dropped his last 2 fights and I'm not sure he has the grappling advantage against Cannonier....I'm leaning toward the Killa Gorilla.

    Cannonier has only lost twice to strikes by Reyes and Shawn Jordan, a HW and a LHW lol. It's not a given at all that Whittaker actually pushes forward and lands something big, if anything I expect him to be ultra cautious.

    Cannonier knocks Robert out cold.

    It’s just the fact that he looked so bad against Izzy. If Whittaker wins a close decision then maybe they will pass him up, especially if Costa beats Izzy in a close fight.

    I think most in here expected this already. Really the most logical fight to make. Picking Whittaker here.

    I mean there's no guarantee Izzy is even champ by the time Whittaker is able to fight again
