I could argue the fight was a draw, but I don't see how Costa wins round two.

He was getting blasted and kinda grazing Yoel's abdomen while moving forward.

And i don't think it was a bad decision. That's exactly how i scored it. Yoel should of been more aggressive early on. But Costa hits like a truck so easier said than done lol

@Bry trust me dude. Romero slipped just about all the head stuff, and really only got caught to the body and was flick jabbing and short hooking the bejeesus out of him. Only reason it didn't look worse is because Costa on top of being an absolute terminator also appears to be, terrifyingly, a ring zombie.

Again, I can't be mad at that decision but I have to feel for yoel there. He did enough.

Regardless there's no denying Costa the winner of Whittaker vs Adesanya. So Costa vs Whittaker.

If Rob can beat both of those guys he's the best MW of all time  IMO.

Went back and forth on this next one. But i can see diaz picking pettis apart on the feet like he did cowboy and michael johnson but pettis is so unpredictable i could see him winning also but i picked diaz in the end
