    I think Rockhold has this.

    Whittaker is the worst matchup in the division for Luke. On the other hand, I feel Yoel is very beatable for him, especially in a 5 rounder. Yoel is too low volume to keep Luke from establishing his rhythm.

    Yoel is legitimately one of the most physically talented athletes of his generation though, so it's impossible to write him off. He has the ability to pull things out of his ass that reverse the fight so dramatically that it makes the rest of the bout look like he was sandbagging.

    One sided? Weidman was ahead until that stupid wheel kick. It was over from that point, but was in no way a one sided fight before that.

    This is some terrible news for Rockhold. Romero might've lost against Whittaker, but we all know that if it was a fight to the death Whittaker would've lost for real. Romero is a fucking killing machine, he is going to knock Rockhold out. No way Rockhold is winning against the soldier of God.

    To many people hate Luke on this forum and to many people over look Yoel's flaws.

    Well, it's wasn't one sided but luke was winning the fight regardless of the kick or not and it was pretty clear. And no Chris was not ahead at any moment in this fight. After round 2, two of the judges had Luke up 2-0 and one judge had it 1-1. End of round 3, two judges had Luke up 3-0 with (10-9,10-9,10-8) and the judge that had it even gave Luke a 10-8 as well.

    I see it this way as well. Only thing I see Yoel doing is catching Luke with something explosive. Even if this fight stays standing the whole fight it's a tough one for Yoel. Luke maintains distance very well and is great at walking opponents down. And Romero of his back will be I trouble, especially in the later rounds.

    Luke is either gonna sub or KO Yoel, he is much better conditioned and far longer than any previous opponent of Yoel.

    I want Yoel to win but I think Rockhold matches up well with him.

    Romero kills him. Rockhard goes on an epic losing streak and becomes the laughing stock of the UFC.

    Definitely.

    Yoel is entertaining and pulls impressive wins out of his ass but of the 8 or 9 UFC fights he has had Tavares and Starks are the only dominant wins he has had.

    He struggles and usually loses until the comeback in pretty much every other fight.

    I'm not a Rockhold hater, but he's going to get PTSD from this fight and then retire.

    I heard the same story vs Mousasi And Romero too. Always winning until he loses.

    Round one both guys were just feeling it out, like in most fights, so that was a pretty competitive round, but at no point in that fight Weidman was ahead. Luke was controlling, And never in any real danger. That fight was just an ugly beatdown that should have been stopped much earlier.
