    Someone like Maia or Woodley could give him serious problems, we're not known for solid wrestling skills.
    The great thing about Till's stance, is that he keeps his hands low most of the time, which helps his TDD tremendously.

    I do think Woodley is a bad matchup for him though.

    I just love sweet timing like that. His unorthodoxy will catch up with him once better boxers work him out.

    Barbosa could take him out early doors, but you have to favour Khalabeeb if it moves in to the later rounds. Both dudes are terrifying in their own ways. Is it a five-round fight?

    Rarely see Condit have a bad fight, so should be worth watching.

    So who are we going for tonight? I'm leaning towards Bisping just because he's bigger, has been (slightly) more active and is historically quite difficult to keep down. It's a difficult fight to pick though because so much about GSP is unknown at the moment. All things being equal I'd pick him, and I really don't want to see him lose, but he is moving up a weight class, and dat layoff.
    Not really sure who to go for in the BW fight either. Probably will pick Cody because he was really impressive against Cruz and he's quite aggressive, I can see him getting a (T)KO.
    I don't see anyone beating Joanna for a long time. She's a machine.

    I'd love to see Namajunas having her hand raised and ten pounds of gold strapped around her waist

    Who'd have predicted elderly Bisping as champ having beaten Silva, GSP and won the most fights in his divisions history? That's how tonight could end

    color me surprised. I don't think anybody expected Rose to win tonight. She's the first new champ of 2017 too I believe (after JBJ tested positive)

    pretty much all the streams have been bad for me too.

    Nice finish by GSP, but sad to see Bisping get choked out like that. Best main card of the year by far.

    Never doubt GSP. Especially when fighting someone shit like Bisping.

    I got up at 6am to watch this, glad I did. I was worried that GSP was going to gas and ride the 5 rounds out so I was made up to see a definitive finish as well as the ones in the other fights.

    Didn't enjoy the Steven Thompson vs Masvidal fight at all though.

    Really good card. Rare to see all three title fights go the way of the underdog. GSP looked good but I wonder if he can put a performance like that against the bigger 185 guys. We'll see.

    Surprised Rose walked Joanna down like that. Great grappler with excellent striking is always scary.

    Wasn't really that interested in Cody vs Dillshaw, as I thought the trash talking was way too much, but another good fight.

    Thompson vs Masvidal was a stinker. In fact, I find most of Wonderboy's fights to be boring; I don't understand the appeal.

    Solid card. So is Bisping retiring now?
