Man Chael was on point here. I also don’t get the Curtis hate. Dude has had some awesome fights and finishes. Not every fight can end in a stoppage...but he is a winner. His only losses are to Ngannou. I think he stops Derrick.

I love both dudes-the people that don’t like Blaydes simply just don’t like technical wrestling. Not as exciting, I get it. However to not like a man for the way he fights is petty.

Chael poses a question everyone can answer. Curtis is hated because his product (fighting) is boring. No one cares about an athlete's personal life which is why Jones is waiting for a championship fight.

It's probably because Curtis has a speech impediment. Not shitting on him at all. I've had a stutter since I was a kid. He does pretty good controlling like I do but we can always tell

I'm obligated to root against Blaydes because, while effective, his hugging strategy is beyond boring to watch. I'm all for grappling and ground control, but towards a goal of a submission or a ground and pound stoppage. Blaydes seeks no such finishes, he just hugs and tries to stay on top.

Both aren't elite. Rozenstruk or Gane are worth a better go. And even then, Stipe, Bones and Francis would beat them all senseless. Izzy and Jan should come HW, as well as Conor, let's mix it up

I think next week's main event (Jairzinho vs Gane) is more meaningful for the division but that being said, Francis is next then Jones gets the winner so all these guys still have to fight again before they're gonna get a title shot. Also I'm pretty sure as long as Dana is still around Blaydes won't be getting a title shot so if he wins this fight means nothing.
