    10-9 RDA. He's landing cleaner shots, neutralizing Colby's wrestling completely.

    Colby is the one pressing but RDA is the one landing the cleaner shots.

    I have to give this to Covington, his cardio is amazing. He never stops coming.

    RDA lands cleaner shots all fight, Rogan goes one sided for Covington as if RDA is broken.

    And now RDA is outwrestling Colby ROFL

    Edit: Have it even after 4 rounds

    I think Colby is ahead. If he wins last round it’s his for sure.

    Colby is a legit contender. Unless he gets KO’d now he’s a legit threat.

    Colby and the art of winning via failing offense. As someone who only care about effective offense, I refuse to appreciate Colby's game lol

    Another hard fight to call. This could go either way.

    He had more strikes, more takedowns and more pressure

    This should be a title fight, commission is BS.

    Will be interesting if Romero sticks to a more striking-based strategy. Trying to wrestling Whittaker is not the solution to beating him, it'll only get Romero to tire faster. Fun fact: Robert Whittaker worked his wrestling so much that he could have represented his country in the Commonwealth Games in wrestling if he wasn't UFC champion

    Whittaker is looking all game. Expect him to start strong.

    Romero explodes like crazy but he's so patient he's throwing away rounds.

    Weird strategy from Romero. I wonder if Romero removed his bouncing as a way to conserve his energy and explosiveness late into the fight. He explodes on everything he does. :dunno:

    His spinning backfast attempt can send a guy across the cage.

    Whittaker is doing a great job of breaking Romero's rythm.

    Watched his open workout once. His stretching is more athletic than anything I can do.

    Both he and Romero are the only fighters in the division that manipulate rhythm brilliantly.

    Romero is so unorthodox, there's no other fighter like him. His striking makes no sense yet he's making it work.
