    no one doubts Usman can and will take Colby down. Colbys a better scrambler and is impossible to keep down. Usman isnt much of a top player either (neither is Colby). Both guys will be taken down, Colby prolly gets taken down more but hes gonna escape every time and this fight will mostly be on the feet

    Usman will smash Colby.

    That is correct: Colby is getting dominated.

    I don't know where people are getting the idea Colby has some huge advantage in cardio over Usman.

    Usman is a better top player than Colby. That was proven by their fights against common opponents such as RDa.

    As I said watch Usman rounds 4-5 against RDA/Maia
    Compar that to Colby rounds 4-5 against RDA/Maia.

    Usman is most definitely a better wrestler than Colby. Colby conceded 3 takedowns against RDA and has a tdd of 78%. Usman conceded 0 takedowns against RDA and has a TDD of 100%.

    Size isnt always a hindering thing for the bigger fighter. Smaller guys have to work near maximum power output just to keep up with a stronger guy going at 75-80%, Which drains your cardio quickly.

    One of the best ways to have better cardio in Wrestling, Grappling etc is to become stronger than your oppnent. The more strength you have the less you need to exert yourself.

    Kinda like going on an assault bike some big dude can push 500 watts without breaking a sweat while for smaller guy 500 watchs is his 20 sec max sprint effort.

    Usman is a d2 scrub and will not out scramble Colby on the ground.
    Usman also won't be able to takedown if hes pinned against the fence.

    This is the battle of will, whoever refuses to backpedal, and walk forward will win.
    Nothing has shown me Usman can match Colby strike for strike, he will give in, and spend most of his time backing up.

    Woodley hurt his wrist/hand hence he couldn't defend TD's or throw them hands. That's a fact. He clearly is still suffering from breaking his hands in the Till fight after smashing the shit out of him.

    Colby would of finished Woodley imo .... But this fight should be fairly even .... Expect Colby to throw lots while separated ...then Usman to close the distance and neutralize him for 5 rounds

    I agree wholeheartedly. The cardio for this one is a wash. Neither guy will get tired, it's more a question of if Usman's strength and power triumph over the distinct quickness advantage Colby enjoys. I really am interested to see if either guy is able to impose his will on the other. I suspect they won't and it will be a wall n' stall for the ages, but...

    He has to wear Colby down. I don't think Colby is going to be shy about his energy expenditure while counter wrestling as much as
    Woodley.

    Colby and Usman fight almost the same, xept Colby was D-1....so i don't expect him to get "ragdolled" by d-2 Usman.

    Fighters actually do have off nights. And Twood looked like shit that fight.

    Do you not watch other sports? In tennis, player A can dominate player B and the reverse can happen a week later. Fucking stupid how people think fighters perform at the same level every god damn fight.

    I appreciate the the wrestling 101 but we talking mma wrestling where hand hip placement, posture and all that other good and proper sh!t you mentioned gotta give way for elbows, knees, fists, spinning sh!t etc in mma. Even with all Colby's technical advantages the same ones he had over RDA who was still able to get back up and reverse Colby with his technical advantage, peculiar..?

    You really think TWood is more jacked than Usman. Really...?

    I really don't hear any Colby supporters or flag wavers posting or saying anything to me to give me any pause on going all in on Usman they giving me no other avenues for Colby to win than to get Usman tired, last 5rds and win the title on a decision they know won't be unanimous, like any Champ is gonna lose his belt on a split decision, especially to Colby Covington..?

    C'Mon Man...?
