Watched the Parker v Chisora fight last night. Parker was better this time around with the extra weight and the game plan. Could and should have K.O'd Chisora. The scorecard was embarrassing.

Chisora showed his usual big heart but just is very limited. Really is time for him to hang his gloves up before he gets too cross-eyed.

He left his chin open to the upper cut all night , judges need their eyes tested

Covington v Masvidal confirmed March 5th.
Just hope it goes ahead.
Obviously, there’s a massive back story to this. These two really don’t like each other now. Should be a fun watch. If it actually goes ahead...

Looking forward to Ngannou and Gane next weekend. I think it probably doesn’t last more than two minutes of the first round.

I actually think Gane as a chance 😬
Technically he’s a much better fighter,obviously if Francais lands a bomb it’s game over.
I’m not a big fan of the heavy weight decision tbh.
As for Covington v Masvidal,Covington wins easily imo.

I think if Gane can avoid a big punch in the opening exchanges, he has every chance of taking Ngannou to deep waters. Big IF though. Not had a look at the betting yet, but might be one to avoid.

I agree, Covington will have the edge in terms of work rate and output. Depends which Masvidal turns up. If he can muster the one who fought Till, should be a cracking watch. I think Covington forces him to quit though.

I don’t rate Masvidal,the Askren KO has made him.
Like him or not,Covington is a class fighter.

Disagree slightly. Masvidal has always been good value - albeit limited. Think the Till fight was before the Askren walkover and was an amazing performance. But yeah, Covington is high level. It depends how he can overcome his shortcomings against Usman. Not that this fight will require motivation in either side.

Yes he’s good value, & looked good in the Till fight.
But how good is Till?
What potential fights you looking forward to in 2022?

At the time Till was a beast, but possibly coming straight off the loss to Woodley. Accept your point as I think he’s only won one subsequent fight.

These two fights are up there. Adesanya v Whittaker 2 will be good. However I’d like to see Cejudo return. Despite his cringe factor, it would be a great achievement if he could win at a third weight. Or even if he was the one to retire Dillashaw. What about you?

I don’t see Cejudo beating Volkanovski,but I’d definitely like to see it.
Obviously Gaethje v Oliviera.
Think Conor v Ferguson makes sense

Yeah Volkanovski would be too much for him but would be a worthwhile watch.

Gaethje is up there with my favourite fighters to watch. Oliviera is a finishing phenom. Be a good fight for sure. I would prefer McGregor v Gaethje as I think Ferguson is no longer the same fighter (although, neither is McGregor). Although looking at recent reports, McGregor would not make lightweight.

That’s why I think it makes sense.
Personally I think Gaethje would destroy Conor.
