Fantastic fight. Strickland showing the discipline shown in the adesanya fight was no fluke. Brilliant by du plessis to make the adjustment after taking a pounding by the jab in round one and that fight could have gone either way. Literally hinged on a very close third round.

Yeah really good fight, was very impressed with du Plessis' cardio. I gave edge to strickland but not upset with the decision, very close fight

What do you think about Bo Nickal against either of these guys?
Good question. Not sure he's ready for any of the top dogs yet, that being said, if he can get either of them down they're in trouble. Not the biggest fan of wrestlers in general but Nickal V Khamzat I would be interested to see down the line!

Honestly, I’m a big fan of TNT, the Discovery app is very good and I prefer their football coverage over Sky.

Yeah, I access all the content through the Discovery app (not sure if there is even a TNT app) and have found it really easy to use. What I love about the UFC events is that they have timestamps, so it can take you straight to the start of whichever fight on the card you want to watch.

Earlier my TV app was showing The Ultimate Fighter and classic fights etc. Now I can only view them on my phone??!

Anyone else had this?

I was listening to him on JRE and he said he has only been striking for 4 years or something?! Crazy.

I had a nightmare with TNT since it went to discovery.

I cancelled my paid monthly membership because I now get it free with my phone contract.

They charged me even though i cancelled it and refused to refund me because a week had passed before i noticed I was charged.

They then charged me again the following month and despite them saying my account had been deleted and I complained immediately, took 4 and a half weeks and half a dozen phone calls until they could be bothered to send me a cheque for my refund.

Had a great experience with them until that but was a real piss take.

Yeah I don't know a great deal about him,, I know he's a really accomplished wrestler so if he can develop his striking he could be a real problem for the division

Nickel is going to take it slow. Said he plans on 3 fights this year with the 3rd against a top 15 guy. No rush

Hope Volk wins and I think he will. He looks calm and confident and Topuria has put absolutely everything on the line for this. Being over confident isn't always good, he has put so much pressure on himself.

Whittaker Vs costa be really interesting too.

Also, i really hope Geoff Neal gets the win against Garry, who is IMHO the most dislikable fighter on the entire roster

Defo want volk to win, loved his old man volk dress up. Whilst super talented, topuria’s connor mcgergor imitation is super annoying and played out by now.
