I hope Robert fights with plastic wrap on.
Izzy on championship weight if something happens.
Anderson crying. Yikes.
I wish I’d gotten tickets and flown down. I was in Melbourne recently for work and went to the tennis. Rod Laver isn’t all that big. This would’ve been awesome.
Watch where you’re putting those hands Jon.
Who’s everybody taking for tomorrow’s main card? I’m going:
The other two fights are with people I’m not familiar with.
That’s what I’m going with. And obviously cheering on all the aussies!
It really is a shame how the end of last year ended up. This card could’ve been awesome if Tai had of beaten JDS, if Pedro had of beaten Shogun and if Hooker had of beaten Barbosa.
That Barbosa fight was epic. What a beating Hooker took.
Was very disappointing!
I will be triggered out of my fucking mind.
What the fuck
Don Cerrone lookin’ ready to hunt some Mcgregor’s and O’driscoll’s.
Got that upset feeling tonight.
Not sure if I’m feeling Kelvin or Anderson.
No idea who I want to win tonight.
Just want some good ones.
Actually I like Whittaker. So go him.
I don't think there is anything not to like about Whittaker. Such a good fighter, and he's only gotten better as time goes. Super humble even though he hasn't been beaten in 5 years. He has never backed down from a challenge without injury, and he's won every fight people expected him to lose. His only really bad loss came from Thompson who was in his prime and Whittaker was making a hefty weight cut.
His last bout with Romero solidified him in my head as one of the greatest to come from the UFC. This is just another stepping stone for him to be in contention as one of the goats ever.
Gastelum, while having had a few highlight moments, I feel really isn't the top contender for a title shot in the division. His ranking is confusing, considering Souza truly should've won their fight and he won by split decision. Before his fight with Bisping, Bisping had just taken a serious loss to GSP weeks before. Having 2 missed weigh-ins and a fight overturned doesn't help (even though it was weed).
While I won't say it is "luck" that Gastelum is fighting for the title tonight, it's certainly not just skill that got him here. A bit of a circumstantial situation in my eyes.
Atmosphere we be electric for Whittaker tonight too. Have they ever had a PPV in Australia before?
last year it was Whittaker/Rockhold in Australia but Whittaker got injured.
Ohhhh so that makes it even better in a way
Clearly Dana respects Whittaker so much to make sure to give him a home country audience.
Rousey vs Holm was in Australia as well if I remember correctly
Annnnnd Robert just dropped out of the fight. Fuck.
Somebody call Souza and get him on the first flight out.
Dammmmmn you hate to see it
I guess it's nice that we get to see Adesanya/Silva go 5 rounds now...
