    I hate you all. And name bet? I don't like the idea of having both my name and AV changed- it confuses me when other people do it and I can't tell who they are. Jerks.

    I'll take whatever of yours you are willing to give up. Unless justin suddenly decides to use his wrestling he is getting smoked.

    You're not the first man to say that to me.

    I'm not confident about Justin's chances but I think he has all the skills to win and it would be awesome to see him taking on the top 5 smarter. Plus Barboza's boxing is the least scary thing about him by a mile; which is where most of the fight will take place IMO.

    Either name bet for a month or some kind of exercise thing like Farty did (though more abusive and not on camera because the internet is weird). Hilarious and inappropriate assassin's choice.

    But I will never change my Belcher photo!

    Hey @Poindexter, do you remember when our bet ends? Want to make sure I pay off my full debt before I change DA's name :)

    If it was one month, it's April 2nd.

    I've seen how utterly durable Gaethje has been for years, dating back to those WSOF wars he got into with fricking Palomino(2X), Melvin and Firmino(goddamn his WSOF fights were hella fun!), but attending to trends and patterns over his fighting career, that durability has visibly eroded given the miles his chin is carrying. Going into UFC with those fights and then wearing the after-effects of the Eddie, Johnson and Poirier fights, I think he's started to go into these wars with a lower powerbar(as is only natural when you take damage over time) and being matched up with a buzzsaw like Barboza, he's going to be getting into a dogfight where he's going to have to sling and absorb something in return, which I'm not so sure he'll be capable of answering at this juncture in his career.

    IMO, this first round is gonna be a banger and is likely the best time for Gaethje to try and shut Edson's eyes and call it an early night, but they compliment each other so much in their stellar offence, I think the longer they're in the cage trading and the more shots Edson can give, the lesser shot Justin has of walking out conscious.
