My Own Discussion

Israel Adesanya (21-1; Unbeaten @ 185) vs. Robert Whittaker (23-5) II UFC 271
Rafael dos Anjos (30-13; 15-month layoff) vs Rafael Fiziev (11-1; UFC Streak = 5) UFC Vegas 48
Neiman Gracie (11-2; Gracie jiu-jitsu) vs. Logan Storley (12-1 MMA; NCAA All-America) Bellator 274
Gegard Mousasi (48-7-2) vs Austin Vanderford (11-0) Bellator 275
Beneil Dariush (21-4-1) vs. Islam Makhachev (21-1) UFC Vegas 49


Israel Adesanya (21-1; Unbeaten @ 185) vs. Robert Whittaker (23-5) II UFC 271
Will Whittaker defeat the Unbeaten Adesanya @ 185?
I hope so

Rafael dos Anjos (30-13; 15-month layoff) vs Rafael Fiziev (11-1; UFC Streak = 5) UFC Vegas 48
Will the Vetern surpass Fiziev to hand him his first UFC defeat?
I do not think so not because dos Anjos is bad nor that he is returning from a hiatus, but because it seems to me that Fiziev is a tough challenge who has proved he is worthy of competing veterans and that he wants to rise to the top these years.


Neiman Gracie (11-2; Gracie jiu-jitsu) vs. Logan Storley (12-1 MMA; NCAA All-America) Bellator 274
We will see. I cannot judge either fighters. However, Gracie jiu-jitsu is not something to belittle. On the other hand, 11-2 vs. 12-1 is something that must be too competitive to predict.

Gegard Mousasi (48-7-2) vs Austin Vanderford (11-0) Bellator 275
Moussasi is a real MMA Veteran who has a marvelous record from his DREAM days until now, so he is eligible to break Austin Vanderford's (11-0). I am eager to see unbeaten streaks go further in this case because I am not a fan of the first. Frankly, I have never watched Austin Vanderford before.

Beneil Dariush (21-4-1) vs. Islam Makhachev (21-1) UFC Vegas 49
Neither Dariush nor Makhachev is bad but Dariush is eligible to kill th hype around the latter.

Tell me your thoughts and expectations

Have a Nice Day!
