Not the best looking ppv they have had but the next 2 are looking good so we can make do. Though this may well be a good card. I am going for Whittaker in the main event, anyone who can go 10 rounds with Romero and win both times should be the favourite in their next fight no matter who they are fighting.
The co-main should be fun, I'm picking Iaquinta in that one.

Really looking forward to the main and co-main but not a great card overall.

Looking forward to seeing Jamie Mullarky on the big stage.
Fancy Tai and Jake to get it done.

Rob will expose Israel’s grappling badly. He subs him imo

Whitaker has been in two wars with Romero and has had some rotten injuries the past few years, while Adasenya has been fresh and very active.

Think Adasenya finishes him last in the fight.

Doubt Adesanya will make it to the championship rounds. Round 3 KO by Whittaker for me. He beat Yoel in the first fight with one one leg and then with one hand in the second fight, the man is unstoppable. Adesanya nearly got knocked out by Kelvin and would have lost if Gastelum didn't go for a takedown at the dumbest moment possible.

Just got an email about this. Seems tickets prices have dropped to try and shift some more. Available from $35 which is a steal imo

Wow that is some price, considering what some paid for bellator last weekend.

google says $35 is around €20. you would pay that for local events here

A friend of mine lives in Auckland and he said that there's very little buzz about it in the media over there (the rugby world cup probably doesn't help in that respect)

Putting the event on in a 54000 capacity stadium was overly ambitious. They did UFC 193 in a 56000 capacity in Melbourne too but that was at the height of Ronda Rousey's popularity.

This week promoting the fight Adesanya has talked about fighting Jon Jones for the 205 belt in 2021 and then fighting Stipe or whoever is heavyweight champion at that time. I know it's probably just to build hype but Jones decision him easily and Miocic would just wreck him.

Really poor card, not sure I’ll stay up for it.
Not being ppv helps though.

Hard to call the main event.
8/11 Whittaker 1/1 Adesanya seems spot on.

How do you think Justin will do?
I know Junior is a really good big man for a kickboxer but don't know much about Justin at all.

Are you surprised Justin is getting a UFC fight while Junior is still sticking to kick boxing?
