  1. I think there is a factor of " I'm fighting Anderson Silva " but Robbie feels disrespected, Silva would be a great name on his win list! Robbie knows he has skills and hits hard, he not just a Fan of fighting , he is a fighter…Aussie and Maori attitude is different to American attitude…we see boastful, loud, emotional people that often gets praised in America and the UK, like Ronda, Connor and Bisping..as childish and setting themselves up for a big emotional fall when things don't go their way, like Ronda and Bronsen! Look at how Young American Fighters and even their coaches, childish antics and behaviour compares in the TAF series, compared to fighters of different nations. Fighters being loud , emotional and boastful outside the ring, is not everybody thing! …Robbie is nice , because he's confident , he not a little dog barking behind a fence …and Robbie thinks he won't be a peek fitness and skills for another few years, yet he already going for top 5 in his division!

  3. A top card could fill an MCG, split Melbourne and Sydney over one weekend and it's a blockbuster, 20,000 punters for a local card pretty much i dont know why we havent seen a Bellator show yet.
    I reckon Volkanovsky can cut through a division, his timing into the UFC is perfect, same as Pedro, both awesome fights.
    A belt shot for Whittaker by this time next year in Australia for sure i think he will be beast now gunning for a title…i dont know if he has much in the way.
