If the UFC just let guys rise to the top on their own instead of trying to manufacture superstars, they'd have much better luck.

The way they do it now just doesn't work. Eventually these guys have to fight actual fighters and they always choke in the end.

How did Silva choke? Silva has a alot of talent I can promise anyone that.
I seen him fight against Brown and he nearly KO a top 5. Brown is a fucking monster too.

Silva is going nowhere he is a popular fighter with fans, he is bordering on brilliant at times.
If I were to be forced to compare I would see Silva with Mcgregors gas tank would be top 5.

Silva has fought three real fighters and he lost all three times. Anyone can look good against the guy Silva has looked good against because they were guys hand picked to make Silva look good.

Ugh. Just when there was a great feud brewing, he kills it!
This is problem with Cub, Frankie, DJ, etc, they don't know how to sell themselves. You don't have to go full Chael, but ffs they need to stop with the buddy shit. Be honest, speak your mind like Frank Mir used to. Call guys out, stop with the cliched "I'll fight whoever Dana wants me to fight" bs.

Connor is like Erick Silva and Ryan Bader: he wipes the floor with the lower guys. Can't wait to see him against a Mendes or Edgar.

He just beat a late replacement Brandao who isn't even top 15.

I agree, this Connor shit is getting irritating!
