Tony has been one of my absolute favorite fighters for years. But after watching the Gaethje fight I think he has slowed down a bit as he didn't look quite like the El Cucuy we are all used to seeing in the octagon. If it was bad preparation for the fight like the unnecessary two weight cuts I still give Tony a chance in winning this fight but Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira is no fucking joke. He can finish anyone with his caliber of jiu jitsu and his striking has been improving by leaps and bounds.

the cuts were shocking. I think they are either admitting that 2020 was a complete loss or they are trying to justify signing 37 fighters from the Contender Series. They need fighters that will turn very quickly in this time but not do it for a shit ton of money. Vettori could be 1-2 fights away from a title shot at middleweight. Its spicing up that is for sure. Vettori jumped up 8 slots in the rankings from 13 to 5 with his 4 fight win streak.
Man I feel like Tony's time has come. The way he was shaking his head after absorbing 500 strikes to the head by Gaethje. I'm affraid his age and CTE will catch up. Also, he needs better people in his corner than his last fight. Do Bronx wins the decision……
the biggest diff between Tony and Olivera is heart ive seen Olivera quit multiple times ive never seen Tony quit. Even against Justin i think Tony's body quit not his mind.
i mean the shots that Gaethji threw would have knocked out 3 or 4 people before that point too. Tony is a soldier
Two big dumb juice heads slagin and bangin in the middle of the cage make it 5 rounds, sounds like a good time!!!
linda demais meu amor Brasil gata ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
I can relate karyn, I'm also fond of olivera and ferguson. It's a great matchup though. Yoel will do well in bellator if he goes there. Congrats to Alan on the win. Thanks for the good content.
