Robert Whittaker vs Jared Cannonier set for Oct 24

READ  Today I lost someone close to me. We weren’t related by blood but he treated me like his own grandson. I dedicate this clip to him. I know watching this makes it all better. 87 years on this earth and now you get to finally set sail into the west. Rest In Peace Poppy Dan.

  1. Fair out, is there a top level fighter more game than Whittaker. Any sensible guy managing his career would of taken a favourable matchup against Hermansson instead of the dark horse of the division considering a win over either does the same thing.

  2. Where are the people who were shitting on Whittaker in that “Hermansson, Adesanya, or Costa” thread? He was literally just spitballing there.

    Rob fought Yoel Romero twice and people thought he’s going to duck Jared Cannonier?

  3. Tough out for Rob. Especially with only a three month gap after going a few years having about a year between fights. He can definitely take this but I’d be betting on Jared if I were a betting man, Rob has been hit hard and dropped by his last three opponents and Jared has scary power at 185.

  4. Is it just me or are all of these fights at 185 so close? I literally love everyone at 185 and it pains me to see any of them lose. Such a killer division. Shabazyan and Brunson this weekend too? Fuck this division is amazing right now.

    Brunson vs Shabazyan this weekend

    Costa vs Adesanya

    Rob vs Cannonier

    Yoel vs Hermansson

    Till vs Winner of Brunson/Shabazyan?

  5. Honestly… this bloke has fought everyone and takes on everyone. No fear. Doesn’t avoid anyone. Jacare, 10 rounds with Romero, prepared to take on old mate good looking, gast, Izzy, till and now take on the rising weapon in the division.

    You gotta give him credit.

  6. What a move by Rob though. Izzy has been flirting with title defenses against Till and Cannonier for a while now. If Whittaker takes both of them out back-to-back he clears the path for a rematch with no possible excuses.

  7. I adore Whittaker but I’m taking the Jared “King of Crystals” Cannoneir on this one. He has stupid power, a good chin and has come into his middleweight fights with very sound gameplans; that combined with Whittaker being pretty hittable if you’re able to plan for his style and time his blitzes makes me worry that Rob’s lights are gonna get turned out.

  8. So hermansson vs till?

    Also of anyone watches Chael on YouTube he has made 5+ videos on the #1 contender against Izzy and the division and he has NEVER mentioned Jared Cannoniers name. I think Jared bullied him or something as a kid

  9. Was hoping he would be against hermannsson. Now hes in another fight where I like both people again.

    I think Cannonier doesnt get into any kind of chess match like till does, I think he is going to (attempt) to walk right thru Rob. Kind of feel like he can do it too.

  11. Maaaaaaaan, I’m scared this kills the Bobby Knuckles! This match up is a former HW vs. a former WW. Till and Adesanya were rangey enough to give Rob troubles in the striking department. Here’s to hoping his dash carries him in quick enough to make the Cannon whiff #WarKnuckles

  12. Fuck I really wanted him to take the Hermansson fight. I thought the only obstacle would be if Rob wanted more time off and Hermansson was ready to go again. I just want a classic Rob vs grappler match up. Not these motherfuckers with one shot kill power. Winner gets the next shot at Chimaev

  13. Damn idk about this one, Jard hits hard af. And Bobby just fought…. so almost 3 months off? That’s not enough time I don’t think. Plus he loves to run into punches. I don’t see how Rob can win this one.

    So anyway that prob means Rob by decision

  14. Holy shit this fight is gonna be insane.

    Don’t think Whitaker is gonna be able to take Jared down like he did Till which means this is gonna be a stand up brawl knowing Cannonier, he’s gonna come at Whittaker way harder than Till did.
