Few boring events of late...

AUSTRALIAS OWN: ROBERT WITTACKER
is fignting big name Jacare this weekend.
Big test for him but hopefully he gets up.

Mighty mouse on tne main fight too.

Lovely lady Michelle Waterson is fighting Rose Namajunas too which will be a great fight and the winner will more than likely line up a title fignt. Go Waterson!

Free event too.

Robert Whittaker vs. Jacare should be a fight that stops the nation. It's a huge fight for our dude.

I think Wittacker is very underrated but Jacare is so lethal.
Big fight for Robert .... can't pick a winner.

Free hey Demps? Sweet. Will start chilling the beers now!
Not a bad few fights for a non-PPV event. Can't be any worse than the Wonderboy/Woodley snore-a-thon a few weeks back.

Yes sir, fox sports 1 on Sunday.
Card is stacked for a free one....

Must be trying to make up for the last few let downs, especially last weeks bore fest with Cormier.

Didnt see any of the Cormier fight. I thought Rumble would have flogged him.
Waterson v Rose N will be a cracker of a fight.
Looking forward to Sunday. Cmon Whittaker, do Oz proud!

Hope Whittaker wins. Those middleweight rankings don't mean s*** anymore. So a win could see Whittaker get the next title shot (after GSP/Bisping). Stacked card though. Puts plenty of recent PPVs to shame.

DJ is pretty much a guarantee for the win.
Karate Hottie hopefully gets the victory (Demps will be there to raise her hand haha).
Whittaker vs Jacare is a hard one to pick-Jacare by submission unfortunately. Whittaker needs to connect with some good shots early but be wary of gassing himself out.

My oath he was impressive. Total utter domination.
Jacare tried the smart-alec finger pointing on his way to the ring and got flogged for it, great to see! Whittaker unloading like that on Bisping's mouthy head would be epic.

What about Demetrius, my god I just can't see how anyone will get even close to beating him at that weight. Hope he moves up a division to get some sort of competition. He is just faultless.
Shame that Waterson never really got into the fight.

Waterson got the Jacare treatment aye, very one sided. Rose was great.

Wittacker the highlight for sure tho, so impressive.
All over it.

Whitaker is always under estimated and keeps winning. I think this win was even more impressive than the Brunson one. Fought very cleverly and was so on point.
Awesome.

Just finished watching it then. What a win for Whittaker! Biggest win of his career by far. Calling it now that he will get the next title shot after GSP/Bisping. Yoel Romero can go and kick rocks for all the UFC cares and If they give GSP/Bisping the option out of Whittaker or Romero.... I think its pretty clear.

Romero is a dog cheater.

I think Whittaker can beat Bisping.

I seriously don't know how he'd go against Rockhold, Mousasi and even Weidman...

Bisping wants Whittaker next. Wants nothing to do with Yoel Romero.

Yeah I like Whittakers chances against Bisping and Romero.

Rockhold would be his toughest matchup in the top 5. I reckon Mousasi will sign with Bellator. Hes after the $$ and they can offer him way more the what the UFC will.

Whittaker would flog Weidman IMO. He has turned to garbage in the last year or 2. Mousasi would be the hardest challenge out of those 5.

Yeah, Weirdman is cooked.
Three losses in a row.

Might find himself unemployed if he doesn't win his nest one.
