    Honestly.. Paulo is probably the best for Izzy not because he's better technically than the other two but from sheer power/size/agression. I feel Izzy would repeat the Whittaker fight and he would also pick apart Jared. I wanna see if Paulo can eat shots and land a few of his own.... I am not confident Izzy can eat the shots that Romero ate.

    Romero parried a lot of Paulos shots. Parrying seems like a lost art.

    Yeah, it seems that Romero's brother helped him prepare for the fight and taught him a lot of boxing skills. Since the Rockhold fight, Romero has shown noticeable improvement in boxing skills, especially defence. He blocked many of Whittaker's punches by cross-armed defence and deflected many of Costa's punches.

    That was a blanket statement for all fights guy, chill TF out there tiger blood. What I do know is that Robs been in a few wars the last few years. Not to mention Till had Rob nearly finished in round one.

    I don't think you're taking Cannonier physical into account. He's almost as solid as Yoel with a more competent striking game.

    As far as straight styles I agree, but I believe Cannonier's physicality will pose problems. Remember Whittaker so effective against Romero because Romero has some pretty sloppy striking, and he still almost finished Rob. If Rob puts himself in similar positions against Cannonier, I believe Cannonier will be able to capitalize better than Romero did.

    I mean we pretty much agree on everything, except you're just putting more stock on Jared's injury and I Robs series of concussions.

    Should be a good scrap as long as it lasts. No judges needed.

    You know nothing about mental health. It is an emergency.

    Ok, you're right. Either way this is the perfect fight at a perfect time.

    Not even man, he got destroyed by Izzy and didn’t look too flash against Till either. If anything looked better in the Izzy fight.

    Cañón is the type of fighter to fall into Knuckles strengths. If Bobby can avoid the power shot like he avoided from Romero in their first fight, he should win this. Styles make fights.

    As I say, we will see.
    Cannonier is a worse version of Prime Romero, and Bobby is way better than him.
