  • John Razo

    Tyrone no offense to you but you’re an idiot Silva is a master on the ground and his takedown defense is immaculate

    I’m an Anderson fan but i gotta acknowlege the fact that Weidman is the first great wrestler with good bjj that anderson has fought. This will be Anderson’s toughest match on paper.

    Why is Oliveira fighting Edgar, when he was KOed by Swanson in his last fight? Wouldn’t Swanson vs Edgar and Oliveira vs Siver make much more sense at this point?
