    He's like the modern version of Arona.

    Bisping ducked him, got the Silva fight and a belt but where's Rob?

    He's not numba one contender material yet, but if he were to score an impressive win over Leites or the winner of Belfort/Mousasi a case could be made that he deserves an eliminator match against a Top 3 MW. I don't see him beating guys like Romero, Weidman, or Rockhold though.

    I thought he broke his hand against Natal?

    The man is the future of the MW division. Bisping ducked him.

    They've gone to Australia in November or December the last 4 years, assume they will again and Whittaker would be my bet to headline since Hunt's career is over.

    Let's not forget Natal would have beaten Whittaker had the fight gone five rounds. Rafael destroyed Rob's legs

    Dude got his leg fucked up pretty bad by Natal. That fight was way more competitive than I was expecting it to be, but Natal is one of those guys I keep underestimating. I would like to see him face Thales Leites next.
