Brunson hits hard and all....but I have seen too many of his fights where he either runs at his opponent like a total retard (sometimes it works, ask Sam Alvey) or he hangs back and does shit all except hit reactive takedowns followed by sitting in guard and not doing shit


Adesayna will murder Brunson is my opinion. He just leaves far too many holes in his striking and I do not see his takedowns being effective against Adesayna with any consistency.

I think Brunson will fight more tactically in this fight, because he doesnt like Adesanya. By tactically I mean he will be conservative with his striking, and look to land double legs.

I think Brunson moving away from Jackson's hurt him. He looked really good in his fight with Romero, and has looked worst in his other fights.
I think Adesanya will capitalize on Brunson's flaws and KO him. I think if Adesany can win this fight, people can put Adesanya facing a wrestler or not beating a wrestler to rest.

His wrestling defense looked good in his first fight in the UFC. And it looked good against an all rounder in Tavares. I think Adesanya will use frames to capitalize on Brunson's aggressiveness, and land counter shots, and get the KO victory, Similar to how Whittaker KO'd Brunson. Adesanya's clinch work, and range is too much for the division and will be the reason why he will have success through out his career.

There are no easy fights in the UFC - I would love to see these two fighters mix it up in the cage - grappler vs striker always produces good scraps

I agree that Adesayna did not look good in the Vettori fight

With that said though

Vettori is underrated, talented fellow. Also he is young and improving a lot between fights, he showed Adesayna a bunch of looks he had yet to display on film

Adesayna looked incredibly against Brad Tavares who I think is also criminally underrated, a lower half of the top 10 guy for years and years in the UFC now.

I think looking into the Vetorri fight alone as a gauge on Adesayna is a bit inaccurate, as looking solely at the fight with Tavares would be inaccurate.

Just my opinion. Please do not shout at me :tup:
