    Sheldon is a class act happy to see a guy like that in the UFC!

    Class act or not, there is a 70% change that Sheldon pulls out of this fight just like how he pulled out of the Alberto Mina fight and the Alex Moreno fight

    If it does happen, class act or not, Westcott is going to loose. Danny Roberts trains year round with a way better team and his striking is way better than Westcott’s

    Roberts trains wrestling with Kamaru Usman so he will be ready for Westcott to try to take him down and tap him out, which is the only way Westcott can win

    Despite my polite and logical argument of why I think Roberts will win, Alberta fans of Westcott will jump on me saying im a hater and fighter bashing etc etc

    Ah yes the Alberta guy always talk about the Alberta hero Westcott man. Happy the guy getting a shot? The guy turn down all the fight until the guy offered the best one the guy think he can win. The guy scared if he turn down this one the guy Dana White will fire the guy

    The guy had the big athleticism when he beat the bum Alberta local fighter but in the ufc he have not so much athleticism

    How the guy gonna talk crap in the ufc? Lol he don’t fight nobody lol. The other guy would be like “who this guy” lol the guy 1-2 in the ufc over like 5 years and you proud of the guy cause he don’t act like guy Mcgregor lol lol lol

    Cool M, I know your trying to be witty, but Jonathan Goulet actually has 4 wins in the UFC. Your boy Westcott has 1 and your boy has been in the UFC since 2014. At least Jonathan Goulet had the balls to fight. He wasnt that bad a fighter. Actually pretty good to have 4 UFC wins.

    Actually, Jonathan Goulet has more UFC wins than Westcott, Clarke, Day, Valimaki (lol), and Hague (RIP, Respect)

    God I love ignorant Alberta MMA fans. You clowns are the reason UFC will probably never come back to Edmonton
