    How can you say he ducked Cannonier when Cannonier got injured in early Februrary and would have had to pull out anyway? Makes even less sense then for Whittaker to sign to fight Cannonier if he legitimately ducked him in the first place. Sounds like you're getting nervous for you boy's fight, and hell with it at the Apex maybe you should be.

    Cannonier already beat Hermansson badly. No need for a rematch atm.

    The fact that it's the most logical fight to make is why I'm surprised it's been booked.

    Stop it. He pulled out well before Cannonier got hurt. Cannonier was campaigning for Till to replace Whittaker.

    And lol Costa gets whooped anywhere the fight takes place. It's sad that you have to resort to rooting for him though.

    Whittaker is giving me cowboy cerrone esque vibes he seems to want to fight for a paycheck and avoid the high attention high fame title fights.

    So I guess I'd hes not feeling the pressure of the moment he should be able to beat cannonier.

    I think feel he was mentally burnt out vs adesanya and thus made izzy look way better than he really was.

    I don't fucking get this "Robert is small for middleweight" narrative.

    If one saw the Romero fights, it was pretty clear to me that he was not that much smaller than Romero, who obviously is a giant middleweight.

    no he isnt, he's just trying to get another title shot so he can sit on the belt a year in between defenses

    Don't get caught up in the bullshit, all that matters in this game are a fighters mental state on the night, preparation, and and style match ups. Everything else is just noise.

    Lol someone dig up when Cannonier got in the little kid's face about Anderson Silva. Think it was in one of the UFC 237 embedded episodes.

    Anyone willing to go from HW to MW, switch 3 weight classes and try again, must have some kind of resilience that's respect worthy.

    Lol this. Jared was like a +250 underdog and hermanson fought scared for his life and was pummeled.

    After I watched that I got, can't deny. If you think that behaviour of his was ok, this says much about yourself, not me.

    Hope Whittaker stiffs this nobody.

    Great fight. I got Cannonier. Whitaker isn't that impressive to me. He made a name beating overrated Yoel, then looked like Paige Vanzant against Adesanya. Good to see Cannonier finally get his step up to a title eliminator.

    You can't take @Andreh seriously EVER. He dislikes Cannonier simply because Cannonier beat Silva.

    Anderson fans like him make the rest of us look bad.
