The stage is set, the rematch has to happen. On Saturday, Robert Whittaker once again staked his claim to his rematch with champion Israel Adesanya by dominating Kelvin Gastelum for 5 rounds. Also, have you ever seen a fight called off because of a push during faceoffs? Over on ONE, Christian Lee showed why he is a star in the making and in Bellator, who is Brandon going to pick now to win the Grand Prix after Vadim Nemkov controlled the way against Phil Davis.
In non-news/news that we have to cover… Did you watch the circus on Triller Fight Club? Do you wish you hadn’t? Did Ben Askew… I mean Askren take the dive or did he simply just not care? And did Triller buy Fite.TV?!?
