What an absolutely insane card we had in Atlanta. The co main and main event both are Fight of the Year contenders and the rest of the card had plenty of excitement as well. Here are my five thoughts!
- Dustin Poirier has earned everything he has ever been given. He fought brilliantly against Max Holloway and now will most likely get his chance at Khabib.
2. Israel Adesanya is a star in the making and looked absolutely incredible against Gastelum. He pieced him up from distance and basically stuffed every take down that Kelvin threw. His fight with Whitaker will be a massive event in Australia.
3. Khalil Roundtree looked better than he has ever looked against Eryk Anders, and is another fun guy to have in the Light Heavyweight Division.
4. Speaking of Light Heavy Weights, Nikita Krylov kept himself in the mix in the division, with a massive revenge win over Ovince Saint Preux.
5. Alex Pantjoa is a very fun guy to have around the flyweight division. He absolutely plastered Wilson Reis, hopefully the division stays around so he can show how far he can go.
I hope everyone loved the fights this weekend, and check out my pound for pound rankings here because we have big time changes.
