The competition is far better. No shame in losses to the likes of Cerrone, Bendo, Diaz and Healy. I do think it's interesting he buried the WEC LWs and he's gotten trounced by two of them.

He's historically had trouble with three types of fighters.

Guys who are much bigger and can use it in combination with wrestling (Healy, Maynard), guys who can outwork him and have a wrestling advantage (Edgar,Henderson), and guys who can use a reach advantage on him standing and are good enough on the ground to neutralize him at least (Cerrone, Diaz). I remember he wanted to drop to 145 before, but while he won't be outsized he won't have the speed of the top guys but can still beat most others without that next level speed (Siver's done it, so has Lentz).

Believe in the power of one.

But truth is, he had alot of wars. He eventually is going to fade, maybe this is the start.

He had two first round amazing submissions against though competition before fighting cerrone.

he was looking better if anything until this point

Ohhhh the swaying spleen of anonymity shrouded opinions
