@hyrm I also think santos gets ko'd not enough reach. But I do think walker or reyes could beat him.
By the way jon jones said he wants to fight adesanya eventually!  How great would that be.

Walker have some chin problem! 

I'm not high on Adesanya. He did not look good agaitns Silva. He may beat Gastelum but at the moment he face a complete fighter like Whitaker, Romero or Souza he will get is ass kick
