RDA = High Fight IQ

Everyone likes to talk fighters with low fight IQ, but when a fighter fights smart, he's usually just considered boring and/or coasting.

RDA fought a very smart fight against a tough opponent and should be praised for out-working Cerrone like that. Every time Cerrone landed something, RDA threw a combo. Cerrone got a takedown, RDA got a takedown. He coasted a bit in the third round, but the first two rounds were fun to watch.

No, making a thread to point out Dana White's latest lie or self-contradiction is not going to hurt Zuffa. In fact, you're playing right into their hands.

He's pretty good everywhere, very strong and very smart. He's trouble for everyone. I think he made his statement on the division tonight.

Excited to see more.

When hes moving forward and setting the pace hes good. I was rooting for Cerrone but he never let him in. Respect to the man and hope he gets his shot at the title one day.

Been saying it for awhile now that he is legit. Ever since his lost to Tibau he has really managed to put it all together spectacularly. Yeah he had a bad fight against Evan Dunham but even while losing, Dunham has given Sean Sherk(Former UFC champ) and TJ Grant(probably gonna get the next shot) some of the toughest fights of their career so I didn't really take much from that fight as far as dos Anjos', potential goes.

Read the sig, he only needs one more against hopefully the winner Healy/Khabib and he's their.
