There we were having a nice civilised discussion about Tyrone Woodley's ass and now we're back to this Russian ****.

Why talk about fighting? When 8 fights out of 15 are canceled. 1 hour before the start

@Damien, you aren't lying about that. Three title fights, Cruz is an all-time great, Santos is the last guy to beat Błachowicz, Islam is a surging star in the sport's glamour division, and that's just what jumps out for a filthy casual. Good times.

Yan vs Sterling is probley the most intreging fight on the card for me. The standup is a lot closer then people think it is. Yan is more dangerous with power while Sterling threw alot of strikes. I think the smartest stratigies for Sterling on the feet is to threw Leg kick because Yan has a boxing stance and If Sterling could land like 20 leg kicks then the fight could become intresting, Only thing that scares me for Aljaman is that Marlon knockout, But then that knee could KO a horse

Yan should be able to stop most of the takedown, So I think a majority of the fight should be on the feet. Aljaman wresling ain't the best while Yan has great takedown deffence but the only wrestler he fought is Faber. I think It be hard for aljaman to submet Yan with very little time on the ground, 

Im slighlty leaning Sterling to break him down with Leg kicks, But I would't be suprise if this fight is a controvisal decsion for either man.
