    I'm so, so nervous for Whittaker in this fight. He's one of my absolute favorite fighters to watch but I worry about his willingness to brawl and unwillingness to wrestle. Fingers crossed for Bobby Knuckles but I give a slight edge to Izzy after rewatching that Gastulum fight recently.

    I trust Whittaker's chin infinitely more than Iz's. I think brawling would play into Bobby's fight.

    Could be wrong, but. Going to be a fun fight regardless. At least I hope.

    Adesanya is drunk off his own success, I hope Robert knocks his head off.

    I think Kelvin put doubt in his mind and The Reaper's going to capitalize on that.

    This is one of those fights where I have no idea who I'll be cheering for. Have to wait until the fight starts to know!

    Dana White says he'd be open to Jon Jones vs. Israel Adesanya after UFC 243

    Definitely agree brawling helps Whittaker. But if he's reckless and Izzy isn't, that's the concern. Whittaker looooves to run in and have to rescue himself from my (admittedly poor) memory. How was Izzy's chin in kickboxing? Because I think it's looked good enough in MMA.

    He’s been knocked out once in Kickboxing, got flattened but that was about 5 years ago & the only time in about 75-80 fights. His chin is reasonable but the little gloves are different as we’ve all seen. I think Rob is more prone to getting rocked, he’s been in the wars, taken more shots for sure. I’m pretty pumped for this.

    it's truly amazing that we currently have two champions right now that are undefeated and both have 20 or more fights behind them

    I think he's referring to Israel but he's only 17-0. Only....lol. He's 17-0.

    I assume the other is Jones, no?

    Just looking up Sergey Spivac and which led me to

    https://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Travis-Fulton-80

    I remember him from the fight against Pete Williams and i think a few other outside UFC fight but he has fought over 300 times, pretty crazy.

    WINS 255 143 KO/TKO (56%)104 SUBMISSIONS (41%)8 DECISIONS (3%)0 OTHERS (0%)
    LOSSES 54 13 KO/TKO (24%)26 SUBMISSIONS (48%)14 DECISIONS (26%)1 OTHERS (2%


    Most of his losses are against named fighters, including around 5 or so former UFC champions.....
