    Make sure you tune in for Papin/Makabu first, that should be bedlam.

    Been watching some reruns of Papin and Makabu fights and it's another intriguing one. BIg step up in class for Papin and as an ex kick boxer and given Makabu's resume, it seems an easy call. But Makabu looks like a total maniac in the ring and Papin is quite measured, with a decent skillset.

    That fight Makabu had last time with Kudryasov was mental and he's back out a little over 2 months later?

    Papin the slight underdog at even money. Will have an entertainment win bet.

    I watched a replay of Makabu’s last fight in hospital while my bird was getting Induced the other week. It was a great scrap and he looked good. Only ever seen him against Bellew before. He’s floored but likes to let his power shots go. It looks like he’s always be in good fights.

    Seems to me that they feel like they have already won by getting the big payday. I think thats why they are so calm. Winning the fight would just be a bonus to them at this point.

    Surely if it’s about the payday they’d of accepted the step aside fee with a guarantee of the big fight next

    Well no, because unless I'm mistaken they are getting a lot more for taking the fight. Nothing is guarenteed though really is it. Bird in the hand n all that...

    Yarde said he got offered the same amount to step aside but he wanted the fight in his last IFL interview. I honestly think they are 100% confident of winning here

    Well, if thats true then that changes things obviously and I would reconsider my position. I don't think it is true though. I heard they got a lot more for taking the fight.

    Yeah, I think I heard it was either 3 or 5 million for taking the fight. Can't remember which, but either way a lot more than 1.
