    Thought it was cool Chael and Cowboy offered to step in at last minute. Since Bellator allows for TRT and Anderson wants the UFC yo allow it that'd be some drama afterwards regardless. Did Whittaker have a hernia all along?

    It's cool having Stylebender around, but don't like how a lot of people thought he'd just run through Silva. I'm pretty impressed to see a striker his age perform so well out of his prime. I know the fans wouldn't have had it, but I'm curious to know what would have happened between those two on the ground as complete fighters actually testing actual MMA skill vs athleticism.

    the facebook comments on this fight made my head hurt. Idiots claiming adesanya was holding back cos silva is his idol and they werent going all out. Adesanya is going to have a wake up call if he goes up against a proffcient grappler. Hes a great striker but he hasnt really been tested on the ground.

    The Brunson fight showed some excellent TDD.

    Thats because brunson telegraphs heaps. The problem isnt that he cones out in bursts, because romero does also but its he does it from too far away.

    Smiling Sam with the TKO sorry pal if you're not intelligently defending yourself fight is over. Adesanya fought a smart fight against a dangerous veteran people are morons.
    Fu Hung Hsieh remains Fu Hung Hsieh and Kung-tzu Yu remains Kung-tzu Yu.
