I think it was in the second round Hunt had him in all sorts of trouble but for some reason he just didn't go in for the kill. Its like he wanted to toy with him.
Because that wasn’t the script.

Gallen wants Rob Whitaker next... boxing has become such a joke.
Whittaker fights at 84kg, Gallen weighed in at 103 and change. That’s two weight classes (MW to HW) difference in MMA.

If Gallen is serious, maybe he should aim for someone like Lucas Browne, Alex Leapai or (not that he’d be remotely interested) Joseph Parker. Someone in his own weight class and sport.

Or maybe Gallen should harden the **** up, take off the heavy gloves and get in an octagon instead of fighting against guys who are training MMA and not boxing.
I would be willing to pay $$$ to see him in the cage with Bobby knuckles under MMA rules.

Gallen would either need to spend a lot of time training his grappling / BJJ or get some intense training from super experienced practitioners.

A couple of weeks at Storm preseason should do it.

Whitaker has responded and is keen to make the fight happen.

Personally can't see it happening because Whitaker is contracted with UFC and in his prime getting bigger fights but can't help but get excited by the thought of him knocking Gallen out.

What's in it for Whittaker? He could probably make more money in the UFC.

If he wins, no one cares because everyone expects it.
If he loses, well, enough said.

I think so, and with Adesanya looking to move up, could be his belt again?

disclaimer: not the biggest UFC fan/follower so may not be 100% accurate.

Hooker to win and McGregor in the 2nd for a nice multi. I would like to see Poirier sit him down though.
