This is the same stadium as the Ronda event. UFC193
Capacity is probably 70-75,000. They weren’t trying to sell it out. Upper tier isn’t open.

Looked a bit like Adesanya píssed off Whittaker at the face off.

Not that it'll mean anything come the fight.

Whittaker by UD.

Jones would murder him, never mind Stipe

Jamie Mullarkey getting his debut tonight Against Brad Riddle.

Strong connections with Sligo,he was over visiting a few years ago, really sound guy.

Hopefully he will get the win and some support

That's one big venue. Looks a bit empty still. I wonder what the views are like in the furthest corners of the floor

I don’t know much about Justin. But he’s been hyped a lot. First round walkof KO

Not a great first round for Jamie but he usually adapts well.

Hard to call that second round. Could be two to Riddell or one apiece.

Gutted for Jamie but he showed how tough he is. Fight of the night for sure.

Jamie is only 25 so he has time on his side. Hopefully he can learn from this and come back a better fighter.

I think Riddell could be a good one other can improve his takedown defense.
