The main event is a heavyweight clash between two fighters that have been around the block: Sergei Kharitonov and Matt Mitrione. At 38 and 40-years-of-age…

Robert Whittaker (c) vs Kelvin Gastelum This is a pretty great fight for the middleweight championship this weekend in Australia. While I outright favor Whittaker to successfully defend his title, it’ll probably be a bit of a back-n-forth fight with Gastelum having his own little moments too. Gastelum has good hands and speed behind them,…
