Pretty sure it's the way he behaves for the camera and in interviews. He's a lot like Chael in that regard.

He's about as tested as Matt Brown... which means he beats the unranked guys impressively. But it's easy to look good against a guy who's not in the top 15...

If he destroys brandao in first round, then yes he's going to become GOAT.

No he is not legit he lost to porier. Maybe in a few years since he is still Young
.
Mendes, aldo, KZ, swanson are legit. Not hollaway whos gonna have to haulaway. Connor will be legit if he beats a top ten top five minimum. Imo

Personally after he dispatches Brandao, I'd love to see him vs. Frankie Edgar. That would be fast racking his carrer, but that fight would tell us all we need to know about his ceiling.
Frankie would annihilate him, sherdoggers everywher would deny it.

Give him Hacran Dias. Dude looked like the real deal verse Lamas.

Beating Holloway with a torn acl is impressive but he still has a lot to prove.

Beating Brandao in a spectacular way is a good start to proving that he's is as good as he says he is, but until he beats the likes of KZ, Poirier, Mendes, Edgar etc there will always be questions on how good he really is and if he justifies the hype hes made for himself.
