Adesanya takes the 3rd 10-9. Gastelum takes the fourth 10-9.

All square going into the last. Adesanya hurt at the end of the fourth.

I like Poirier, but I want Max to continue his roll.

Holloway with that round. Poirier too tired chasing the KO in R1 and R2?

Poirier is tired. He needs to keep coming forward to disrupt the volume from Holloway.

He wouldn’t do any better.

The two title fights were great.

No. Askren is almost 35 and got touched up a couple of times in his last fight. He was facing subpar competition prior to that.

Askren got dumped on his head and lit up with about five bombs from Robbie Lawler, and from that position won the fight 2 minutes later. It couldnt have started worse and he still wrapped it up quickly. As for sub par levels of competition, you might want to go check the names on Kabibs record.

Dude, Kabibs smokes people with wrestling right? Sending in top level strikers has achieved nothing. I mention that Askren is an undefeated wrestler who should fight kabib and you can not follow the drift?

Askren’s best days are probably behind him and he padded his record beating up scrubs. The first time he stepped in the cage with a UFC fighter he got dropped on his head in 30 seconds. I don’t see how he beats Khabib but hey, that’s why they fight.

A four time NCAA finalist padded his record? The first time he stepped into a UFC cage was against a former champion who defended his belt 3 times, and he still won inside 3 minutes. He would get on top of Kabib and chant USA USA USA.

A 37 year old former champ who is 1-3 in his last four fights. But we will get to see how it plays out soon enough. Until then you can keep dreaming of the scenario you have described.

1-3 by Lawler includes his loss to Askren ffs! He got beat by RDA and Tyrone Woodley. Both are beasts
