Im still honestly dissapointed that they didn't get Rob in here, **** it I'd even see a 185 bout between him and Wonderboy or 205 fight vs Anthony Smith

I blame the UFC for that, They didn't sign a contract for the fight with Rob vs Costa and have no back up plan if Costa didn't sign the contact

Also, I'm disappoted because an Australia card could be so much better then this, With all the big name coming out of Austrailia and New Zealand , They're only really got Volk on it for the big name fighter, And JDM as a prospect people care about,

It's a great card with Volk, Jack Della and Crute. But having Bobby Knuckles, Kai Kara France, and Tai Tuivasa would have made an even better card. So much Aussie talent right now. Sad those fights fell out, Tai said he didn't want to fight in front of a home crowd which I understand. I'd love for Volk to win, big fan, just don't see it happening.

Honestly I think that UFC should always call for Sean in those situations, Strickland is a true BMF of current UFC, heck I'd watch them in Light heavyweight, just give me Sean and Rob

Yeah bro, My issue with this card is that it has so much more potental, It not bad, It just mediocre when it could be great

All the Australian/New Zealand talent and all they get is Crute, Volk and JDM

Sean v Rob would have been fun, at any weight 185 would be best of course.

Im not an expert but if it went to decision even at LHW then I think Rob could safely keep his nr.2 spot at MW
EDIT : I got good news, Kyle Daukaus was cut from UFC

See bro? I told you Modestas would be back in the UFC, I just had a funny feeling that he would. The UFC always needs new LHW’s.

Giving Tyson Pedro bum fights, looks like UFC is very eager to see this fake-prospect win.

Yeah and they’re not even giving him good cans. It’s ******** matchmaking. Why couldn’t HE be the one to get the Shogun retirement rub??? Let him avenge his losses to OSP and ****, stop feeding him these stupid ******* worthless matchups

Pedro vs. Bukauskas
Tyson Pedro, TKO, R1
This is lite work for Pedro, Modestas just isn't on his level technically and I think that he doesn't have a great chin. It's unlikely but he could find a fluky KO though

Makhachev vs. Volkanovski
Islam Makhachev, SUB, R3
Volk will make Islam work for it, but Islam will win in dominant fashion. We've seen Volk taken down by Mendes and put into almost fight ending submission attempts from Ortega. Islam is the far superior grappler to Ortega and he's just a big guy for the division. 3rd round RNC win for Islam

Honestly I need to watch Modestas and Tyson's fight, cause honestly records mean nothing, and by that I mean that they do not have much significant wins, they have more significant loses (Except for Modestas he has a LHW loss to Michał Oleksiejczuk which is a bad loss)
