That a few day before my birthday, I'm going to try and go for my birthday as I alway want to see Volkonovski and Rob fight live, Only issue is that even though it's in my county, It's still a 6 hour flight to go to Perth from the Gold Coast, And it will be expensive

Taila Santos would be a substantial jump in competition for Casey O'Neill, but I'm not against it.

Talia should of beaten Valentina, judges got that one wrong

I avoid it if I was the UFC from a business side, I try and build Casey up instead of giving her hard fight she most likely lose

Disagree but it's definitely the closest fight Valentina has been in since the second Nunes fight. I was impressed with Taila's performance, although I think she needs to improve on her defense and her ground offense if she wants to remain a in the top of the flyweight division. O'Neil could definitely thump her, and I think Fiorot beats her with ease. Erin Blanchfield would be interesting because if they fought in the near future I think Taila has better striking, but I still don't think she'd want to be on the ground with Blanchfield. I also think she'd lose to Amanda Ribas if they fought.

This is a very long way of saying there are a lot of interesting fights that could happen and are happening (Maia v. Moroz) at WFW.

I'd be surprised if Whittaker wouldn't be at least in co-Main Event in Australian UFC card. Unless Oliveira does not recover fast enough to fight Volk on this card for lightweight strap then it's probably another Featherweight title defense for Volk

I'd say volk is the  more skilled fighter but makachev is too big. Dariush might have the best chance to beat makachev. SOMEBODY BEAT MAKACHEV PLS I DONT WANT A WET BLANKET WEIGHT BULLY CHAMP THAT FIGHTS ONCE A YEAR
