I can't trust Whittaker's chin anymore. He got wobbled by a blocked head kick before Adesanya KO'ed him.

unfortunately i have to agree. whittaker absorbed a **** ton of punishment in the 2 romero fights, especially the second one. he might just be another rockhold or weidman now. sad to see though, if it is true.

If this Whittaker vs Till fight happens I favor Till. He is a lot more technical and  precise and he will probably pick Whittaker apart

Josh knows the truth. Till has proven himself nothing but an up jumped hype job. Buuut Whitaker has become very damaged lately. I'm going with ...

Yea. Unfortunately I agree im not convinced Whittaker can ever be the same with the damage he’s taken over his past few fights. Romero is a career killing war, especially fighting him back to back. Also, let’s not forget the one round vs Brunson was pretty brutal as well. I’ll definitely be rooting for the guy but nothing would shock me other than a flying armbar or gogo or something incredible like that. Haha. 

That said, Whittaker has the higher ceiling, IMO. At his best I think it’s a smooth win for him but at this point both fighters are hard to gage for me.

Miocic vs. Cormier III
Stipe Miocic, TKO, R2
Depending on low blows, eye pokes and other cheap shots should be a quick but painful ko in Stipe favor

Souza vs. Yoder
Ashley Yoder
Record tells nothing the only real comp both had beat them, I believe they will both step it up and the one with physical advantages should win.

Stipe vs DC. 
DC wins unanimous decision. He will use his ground game a lot more this fight and pretty much own Stipe. He has won all but 1 round of both fights, and I see him easily controlling the fight

@phillip53

Regarding your comments about Stipe Miocic, you don't suck at being champion when you have the most successful defenses in one reign as champion in your division, and he owns the record with 3 in his first.

@free

I'm not a fan of fighters that think they have to play a character to get over.  If your fighting skills can't get you over, then you belong in WWE or AEW.

@tepid in today's mma being entertaining is more important then being good. Who you know is more important then being good too. Look at bullets sister. Completely up jumped and skipped the rankings. Look at the goat artem buddies with McGregor equals ufc career. Win or lose.
