  1. triste, charles oliveira nao vai mais lutar, feels sad man

  2. I think volk is a tougher opponent for Islam than olivera

    Well polo cost also pull out but Usman vs chimeav will also be a banger

  3. Sometimes it seems Levon’s prep is how engines get out of worse positions

  4. Say whatever You want, but I simply DON’T like Hans and nothing will change that, sorry

  5. one answer to my ??? all game on board or cheater have chance 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. Going to be a hard fight for Volk on short notice. He looked great in the first fight, but now in Islam's backyard and on short notice it should make it even harder for Volk. Love the new Co main event as well.

  7. 1:57 what a blunder! he should have capture c3 with the knight. How can you give up b4 6 moves into the game only?!?

  8. Where did you check who will play whom in the upcoming round? Could you please tell?

  9. "this man", I was like omg is he referring to hans

  10. Great artistic game by both players. Inspirational.

  11. Fabiano and Hans each have three wins. Wesley is next with one. Hans is playing very well, but he's going to have to get by Fabiano and Wesley. No easy feat.

  12. Am I the only one who’s hearing a background static noise?

  13. Levon is American now? I thought he was Armenian… not that I mind, but when did this happen?

  14. I wonder if Magnus will use his status to disparage Hans for this victory?

  15. Hans possesses a little glimpse of Tal…an amazing player love to see more of his games in this channel

  16. the Islam vs Volk is a great fight. I would like the original fight just because none of them can have the excuse of late notice. also same thing with Khamzat vs Kamaru. either way great card.

  17. I posted my stats but if anyone is curious. I played 17265 games and 18 were banned for cheating. 0.1% of my games. I assuming maybe 200 games cheated not caught so most likely on average 1.5-2% of games are cheaters

  18. Thumbs up to this! What a great game. I hope more users check this out.

  19. BTW .. the Mini Mike was a great beach buggy in Australia in the 1970s

  20. Beatiful fight by both, very well analyzed!

  21. does anyone hear a beeping noise in the background?

  22. I don't know what to say I saw the interview with Hanz he said when he saw h5 he felt so much better like he was so confident after that move and the engine says shift everything to the queen side unbelievably bad move so here we go again Hanz evaluates like an engine again….

  23. I want to see Volk win so bad. Islam is just so solid all around though that it would be hard to bet against Islam

  24. Both players deserved congratulations for a good game

  25. I think with the short notice, Islam will win convincingly this time.

  26. I guess people should start playing like a kid IM to win against hans now 😅😅😅😅

  27. Islam vs Volk is the best match up the UFC can put on. It's Khabib vs Conor level. When you are so closely matched it's almost like Chess, Conor never recovered after that 😢

  28. Antonio, what is the longest time it can get you to have an engine analyze a position to depth 50?

  29. Nobody watched the video LMAO. Hans pole smokers are weird AF.

  30. Are there still someone thinking that Hans is cheating in his games? Havent seen that kind of comments so much anymore 😂.

  31. I think Islam will dominate the fight. Khabib's training wont go on waste.

  32. Man, I hope Volk can pull it off. He's one of my favorites now just for accepting on short notice. First fight was so close.

  33. Islam should take it easy First fight was Volkonovski's to win because he's such an elite evolution of Fitch Serra in a LW package (Volk used to weigh more than those two at rugby despite the two being WW champs/contenders). Unless Volk pulls a Couture (something he didn't do in the first fight) Islam is coming in with a better gauge of his grappling and clinch distance which Islam couldn't expect in the first fight and tried the jab touching strategy utilized by most taller fighters against dangerous short stocky grapplers. Since Islam himself was a grappler with a great jab but no footwork he couldn't do what Miesha Tate did to Rin Nakai in their first fight which was the opening Volk had in the final minutes of the fight but Volk showed he was no Randy Couture. Skill wise, power wise and age wise I am sure he is far better than Randy at this day and age for his weight class but he's like a modern Chess player. Guy just wasn't built from the streets or in Randy's case in the military where he originally boxed despite being known as a Greco alternate. He should have finished Islam then and there and despite all the praise for his IQ he paced the 3rd and 4th when Couture would have pulled what he did in the 5th on those rounds because you want the taller fighter to gas out in the last round even if it risks getting KOes. This is Islam's fight to lose.

  34. The way (Hans) transforms positions is just insane

  35. But everybody is still thinking it, aren't ya? Lmao
