    6:30 "Neither am I" Something about the way he talks is so cool lmao. I mean I also have a cool ass voice but he just has this ring, he has this up-and-down story-telling, something coming next tone to his voice sometimes.

              If Rob can survive Yoels hardest shots he will be there standing over a KO’d Kelvin. THE REAPER has him covered

                Kelvin is good but we'll see if he can find Whittaker's chin.

                                            The hardest hitter and the hardest head in the division

                                            Those are great qualities to have when you’re young like he is. Depending on his jaw the way he does it will eventually catch up to him. But he’s right about having a chance against any MW at this point. Whittaker should treat him like he did Romero. Keep away, outbox him. This fight is close. Like the Whittaker/Romero matches were.

But Kelvin has some of the best head movement in UFC history. Kelvin has raw talent. Some say talent doesn't exist. But Kelvin has it. He is better than people realize.
