Its crazy that Till v Whittaker doesn't seem to be getting much hype really. Like thats such a fun fight. Sucks that one of them has to lose though.

It may be a good fight but you got to remember, Whittaker is one of the most infrequent fighters in UFC. He's always hurt which Rob's the division (pun intended). It seemed like he fought once every year and a half. Plus even if he made it to the scale he could still pull out. Not only that but he had that bullshit win over Yoel then got beat twice in one fight by Izzy.

Till on the other hand hasn't done himself any favors either. All he's done in UFC is beat a washed Cowboy, had a shit fight with Thompson while missing weight, get his shit pushed in by Woodley, get murked by Jorge, then have a meh fight with Kel. Not to mention his arrest(?) over stealing a car.

These guys may be talented but there's a lot lot to hate or dislike. And a lot to be desired on both sides. I don't think either guy is title ready either. Till just got here and Whittaker just got blasted into space twice in one fight.

Lol Gus!

Main event was meh. Till proves that UFC really needs to stop withese hype trains. He's a one handed fighter. And terrible output too.

And what excuse will people have for Whittaker being sloppy and wild with these loops and overhands this time? A guy said that Whittaker was always like this and he only got away with it fighting guys like Jacare who's passed it. A guy like Izzy would, and did, make him look like an amateur. Same with Thompson.

That Brazilian Cowboy fight disgusted me.

Referee's in MMA are such spineless shitheads.

I mean lets lay everything out here; Fighters are told the rules backstage before the fight, they know all the rules when they start their career. The rules are drilled into their head over and over again. Then in the fight Cowboy is TWICE warned about his fingers being outstretched in Sabotta's face. Given two warnings, then he actually sticks his fingers in Sabotta's eye, and whats his punishment; a third warning! Like seriously, he was warned about it twice before he did it, and when he actually commits the foul there's zero punishment. Hence why immediately after the action resumed he's still sticking his fingers in Sabotta's face. And continued to do it in the 3rd round getting another warning for it. How many warnings does an MMA fighter get for the same foul?

Its actually impressive how useless MMA refs are. And equally impressive that every fight doesn't involve an eye poke, nut shot and fence grab. We all know that no matter how many warnings are handed out every fighter in every fight gets at least one of each before a point is even considered to be taken. Winning an MMA fight should be easy; as soon as the fight starts just punt your opponent in the balls and at the same time stick a finger in their eye. 100 times out of a 100 the referee wont take a point. Then from there you have an easier go of beating your one eyed opponent still struggling to get over the nut shot.v

Its crazy that a lot of people were writing Rob off and claiming hes got no chin. The guy went 50 minutes with Romero and survived, getting KO'd by one of the slickest and most technical strikers MMA has ever seen in Izzy isnt some embarassing result.

Go Aussie Rob! Quite liked the fight, Rob proved he was the better guy and had more to offer than Till. Rob is deceptively fast off the mark coming in. He was a lot more conservative than he was in the Izzy fight, not wading in like he did there. It paid off.

Was really hoping for more from Gus, perhaps if he put a bit more weight in the upper body than just the middle he could've powered out? On the other hand good luck to you if you're in that position with a submission golden tier expert.

The two oldies, whoever they were, really delivered IMO!
