Taking Dustin via wrestling

Millender is having a very fast turn around

I’m also picking Kelvin to defeat Adesanya.

Same with Jalin Turner?  I swore he just fought not long ago.  Further proof these are “filler fights” for another watered down PPV event.

Be good to see Israel face some stiff competition. I'm all aboard the Israel hype train. Think he picks him apart from the outside and Kelvin wont be taking him down.

Hmmm dont remember Turner off the top of my head. But millender fought on the last event pr pne just previous.  He got towled up on the ground. He had no idea what he was doing. was surprised this is a ppv. Not even a real belt on the table. 

3 fights into the early prelims and it’s been pretty dull so far.

Here’s hoping Belial vs Millender heats things up.

Yeah, Turner fought on the Adesanya vs Silva card in February.

I remember when Belal tried to get the ref to rinse his contact off, after Jouban knocked it out. The ref was like "WTF!?! You can't have contacts!"

Millender has always had trouble on the ground, even back in his RFA/LFA days, against regional guys.

Belial was actually dealing with the range difference on the feet pretty well too.

This really illustrates how good Geoff Neal is.

29-27 Muhammad.
