Anyone else think the Anderson fight may actually be a stinker? Just three rounds of two guys throwing feints and technical strikes that don't do much, leading to Adesanya winning on points?

not a stinker, but i do think theres gonna be a lot of gamemanship and bullshit though. Adesnaya seems intent on trying to show hes an upgraded version of Anderson, and its that kind of attitude that i could potentially see him ending up on trouble. Mistakes aside though this is Adesanya's fight.

You thought some might appreciate it? This is the MMA section in a wrestling forum and that's a video of an MMA fighter doing wrestling moves. This is the kind of shit we live for. 

Great clip!

Yeah, @Silky Kisser it’s down as 1am for the TV prelims, 3am for the main card. And if anyone’s planning to watch the Fight Pass/ESPN+ prelims, guessing they will start around 11pm-ish.

I know Silva is probably looking old in this, but the UFC have really sold me on his fight with Style Bender. There is always usually a buzz whenever Silva is fighting, in my life, but with this new v old story you get the sense we're either seeing the rebirth of Silva (in that he'll probably get a title shot next) or the making of a new king.

I get what David is getting at saying this could end up being a stinker; you always have that risk with Silva. However, I think Style Bender is hell bent on putting on a show.

It will never not be amusing that the first and only proper advert on the Jones PPV was for the co-main. Clearly, Dana and co are like anyone with a pulse and realise Whittaker is irredeemably dull.

Whittaker is a very good fighter. But his last fight took a bit of the shine off him. He was very fortunate to get the decision. I scored it for Romero and so did most others. It wasn't a robbery. But I came away thinking the wrong guy won on the night. Of course, Romero is not without his shortcomings. He missed weight, etc, etc. Ultimately, I think Mousasi is the best middleweight on the planet. 

I enjoyed reading Kevin Wilson's breakdown of Silva and Adesanya's fighting styles (links below). Wilson thinks that it was Bisping who found the blueprint to neutralise Anderson's striking game.
