Had it not been for the huge huge reach and height of adesanya over rob, there is no way adesanya could beat rob, the fighter with a much longer reach and height likely wins against an equally matched but shorter fighter...range in MMA and boxing if you know how to use it gives you an huge huge advantage over a shorter fighter

I hope when bobby fights issy again he gets the win...But as much as this was a pretty dominant performance by bobby I can't help but think he's only got himself somewhere around Issys skill level when he fought Gastelum or slightly higher. I worry that Issy improvement has only increased and the same result will when they fight again, same with Vetorri

Bobby Knuckles is the Manny Pacquiao of MMA in terms of humility and being nice. I know Izzy is a tough opponent (might be one of the best strikes and champion of all tim) but I hope Bobby reclaims the MW title and be a champion for a very long time.

I like this guy very much. Rob will be the champ again. Adesanya mentality is declining. This is the time. But I saw Rob has a bit hesitation.

Gasteleum is a tough sob seriously can take a hit. Barely wobbled. And he was eating some heavy shots. Everyone looks like they been in a fight with kelvin. He's a beast. Robby coulda got ko.ed. But he was slick

Boring point fighting from Whitaker, Gasteluem made it easy for him though.

Whittaker is the most complete fighter in UFC. Adeseyana spent a year hyping up a light heavyweight fight while Rob took the hardest fights and cleaned out the top 5 AGAIN.

2:22 it definitely showed he was training his boxing, I believe with Tim Tszyu, his judging of distance was extremely good as well as timing.

DESERVES A REMATCH?! What? The guy never complained, took his loss. Fought Number one contenders... KILLERS in Jared, Darren and Kelvin. Would of fought Costa who dropped out and Kelvin who gave Izzy hardest fight at 185. He’s so respectful and represents the sport so well

Been a fan of Whittaker since his win over Yoel in the first fight, he's a true ambassador and staying true to themselves. People nowadays want to be and intimidate Conor's wealth, personality, and style.

He needs to fight Jake Paul before he comes at Izzy. No disrespect to Whittaker but we can’t take him seriously unless he’s fought Paul.

Good fighter but that's it not the biggest guy . He has 0 chance against stylebender when they rematch be much of the same .rob has got a bit better so may last abit longer even a decision loss at the very best for him .stylebender has the reach and the IQ . He struggled against jan because of the size and power of jan was too much in that 5th round . Rob slot smaller then the polish power

Rob Whittaker is the ideal brand ambassador for the sport. A gentleman, well spoken who is passionate about getting better every time he fights. And a family man who knows why he fights. Without disregarding the skills of Adesanya, I believe the next time they fight, Whittaker will win. And decisively based on the improvements and adjustments he has made since their first fight.
Noah Måned siden
Easily the fight to make is Izzy and Rob2. I’m a rob fan but a bigger Izzy fan. This Rob looks way more technical, smarter, and more dangerous than last time. I got Izzy by split decision
