Don’t get me wrong about Frankie, he’s only been out of a fight once vs Ortega but I don’t see how he gets a title shot

At least Ortega vs Zambit is on the same card(which means if there’s an injury or drop out there could be a late repLacement)

But what does this mean for volkanovski?

You got to think Ortega/zambit is the title eliminator, unless they want 2 options

Anyhow a lot of contenders for max.....unless Frankie scores a huge upset, then it’s pretty much a free for all for the title

If I was Max I'd rather fight Frankie than Volk too.

**** title fight TBH. I'm a big Frankie fan but he has almost no chance of winning here, and if somehow he does, Volkanovski who is basically just a better version of him is waiting for him.

@Pie I think both Zabit and Ortega are still far away from the shot. Volkanovski should definitely be in line after Frankie. They might do the winner of  Ortega vs Zabit vs Volkanovski.

Spencer never fought someone with Cyborg power, but she beat everyone in front of her including Megan Anderson by obliteration! I'm not sure a coming from KO lost Cyborg will get the win here!


Main even is ****, they give an easy fight to Holloway to make sure he gets back from is last beating because he have some star power!

Basically an unwinnable fight for spencer. Even if she does get Cyborg down, she'll be dealing with a BJJ world champion. And her striking is ridiculously awful.

@fish cyborg is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion the same way McGregor is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion.
Spencer by sub. Poor cyborg getting exposed as a dumb thug with no skill by Nunez another dumb thug with no skill it's all downhill from here on out.

I'm not beting on it but I also think Spencer can win this by sub 1st round.

P.s. I was referring to their fighting styles only. As a person cyborg seems  incredible I'm sure Nunes is cool to.

Cris Cyborg was trained by Andre Galvao, one of the greatest BJJ fighters ever, I don't even know who Conor McGregor's BJJ coach is.

@Tepid probably the mother of his illegitimate child.

Cyborg is literally a 2x IBJJF world gold medalist.

Yeah, she got KO'ed by Nunes. But there's nobody in the division other than Amanda who has anything for her. Certainly a ****can like spencer doesn't.

That's because she doesn't need to. She just KO/TKO's everyone.

Spencer is an ugmoe fat slob. She has no chance of winning here.

I wouldn't say no chance, but I do agree with the sentiment that Cyborg should be favored here. She has participated in BJJ tourneys many times, so I doubt she'll be as lost on the ground as Megan Anderson (lol @ getting outclassed by ADCC Holly).

Felicia will put up a valiant effort, but unless Cyborg's cardio betrays her, I think she'll come out the victor. One thing to note here is that she did have issues getting out of the clinch against Holm, so Spencer heading into the clinch and dragging her down could happen. If she's not made out of glass or a total sitting duck, things might get interesting.
