He told me that his first time getting KO'd was at 14 years old and he woke up in the locker room.
Damn, maybe that has something to do with it? It can't be healthy to get your brain rattled like that in your formative years.
It sucks. He's one of my favorite fighters to watch. His offense is so captivating and flawless. He's so fast. Did you ever spar with him?

Cerrone by Ud in a back n forth battle.

Barboza v Dunham is a 50/50 fight I can see Edson picking him apart and taking him out late with strikes or I can see Dunham catching Barboza cold on the chin and finishing him off.

Very close and even fights overall.

Yeah I sparred with him more times than I could ever count. But me being a student it was more educational sparring so sometimes he would even stop midway to teach me something. I trained with him since before he was a pro til the Jamie Varner fight and he showed me how to wheel kick.

I don't think his chin is that bad yet. I think he's been hurt a few times situationally speaking (meaning the same shots would hurt many other fighters).

Regardless, I know him being who he is he will be like a Liddell or Penn in the sense that he will go down swinging. Even when he's older and the game has passed him he will be that guy who believes he can beat anyone and will want to test it, that's just how he is.
