The UFC needs a solid jobber like him. He's a great measuring stick for the top half of the division and isn't a "gimme" fight by any means.

I think they are keepin him for some diversity just like they keep Bisping. They win fights but aren't too exciting. The only reason I can think of because they cut Jake Shields because "he will never make a run for the title". If that were the case what the hell is Bisping doing in the UFC? He beats mid level fighters then ALWAYS loses the fight that will get him closer to a title shot. At least Jake Shields beat people in the top ten Bisping can't even do that. His crowing achievement is beating Dennis Kang, I mean come on.

Hmm, your 5th ever post was making this thread, either you were banned previously or maybe you should hold off on making threads like this until you understand what fighter bashing is.
Amen. Just because you're the type of fan who doesn't enjoy a Tibau fight doesnt mean others see it the same way. I may be in the minority but he beat Khabib in my book. He landed better shots, stuffed every td (how many LWs have done that to Khabib) and actually took him down. And the dude is a professional. Even tho he cuts obscene amounts of weight he still makes the cut successfully.

Sorry white belt you're on your own.

But he's much cheaper. He's a great gatekeeper and at a reasonable cost.

I got a better question, why didn't you make this thread with your primary account? Was you scared of getting dubz for fighter bashing on your '03 Silverbelt account?

So basically he's still here because he's cheap? Gotcha.

The better gatekeeper is the loser of miller/cerrone. They get paid a little more but are way more exciting.
