Andrade is going to roll through Rose.

I know Dustin has looked really good over his last few fights. Just feel like Max is on another level from him.

I love both these guys. Have a soft spot for Dustin though. I'd love to see him pull it out but I too think Max is probably a level above him now.

Do we like Holloway at 155, though?

Power a little different at 155. Dustin destroyed him in that round. Curious if Dustin will tire himself out and Max can outlast him. That seems to be MAx's only hope.

That was a masterclass first round by the Diamond. I didn't expect that, although I've long respected his skill, unlike somebody here. He's long had excellent boxing combos in the pocket, but has really improved on his footwork getting off center, and changing levels both ways to deceive. That's how he snuck in overhands and leg kicks.

20-17 Poirier. Max keeps waving him in after getting clobbered. Who's he kidding? Maybe himself to feel like he's still in control. He's in trouble here. The only thing that may save him is Poirier tiring from going for the finish.

Max's shots just seem to have 0 effect on Dustin

Poirier is indeed tiring, Max coming on, overwhelming him w/ volume, Dustin needs a second wind. I think he'll get it. But he may also need a 3rd because Max keeps coming and is hard to take out.

29-27 Poirier now.

29-28 Poirier for me, but 2nd round was close to a coin flip.

All tied up going into the 5th as far as I see it, but not mad if Holloway got 3.

Tough round to score. Max had the volume, but Dustin came back to land the heavier shots and hurt Max again. I think Dustin would be hard done if it goes to decision and it's worse than a draw, but that may also be the likelihood if he doesn't have enough gas in the 5th.

155 is just not Max's weight.

I think Dustin won from seeing the 2nd half of the final round, but my stream cut out before. At worst it's a draw.

Regardless, Max took a beating (commensurate to the one he gave to T-City), and this fight likely displays he should stay down at 145 lbs and get better at cutting.

I might go Holloway here. Veerrrry close regardless of final scoring, though.

You mis-scored the first few rounds. Dustin clearly won rounds 1 and 2. The first probably should have been a 10-8.
