Can’t see Darius living to Tony . Tony became a talker than a doer.

I really like Dariush, the guy makes me smile just seeing how much he's enjoying the whole thing...and he's an f'ing monster. I have him knocking Tony out in the third.

I love tony. He is still one of my favorites but i won't be suprised if he got knocked out in first round. Gaethje broke him physically and Oliveira broke him mentally. He is about to retire.

Dariush for the win. Off a 4 win streak, striking getting exponentially better each fight, gritty, and a sneaky one on the ground. Dariush wins by decision.

I'm not the fighter or coach but that wild gameplan actually sounds like it makes sense against Tony Ferguson. He will throw a wrench in any kind of formulaic approach you take, might as well chain yourself to the tornado and be ready to attack when you can really try to hurt him.

I think half of Porier's reason for taking the Conor fight is money for his foundation. He'll probably pocket half of it, then use the rest of it for charity. That's something Porier would do, which is why I think he took that fight. I don't think it's just for personal gain. I could for sure be wrong but Dustin doesn't seem like he's in that mood these days, he's all about that charity.

You’re making assumptions like tony is an easy fight . I genuinely think that having no fans rlly hurt tony ,so is dariush but I predict that tony will knock him out after dariush goes wild . Honestly I’m a big fan of both fighters but I want to see tony get the win here . Mystic Mac predicts a round 2 ko
