he's had a long career; he's already been ko'd a lot of times; and he's going to have trouble maintaining that bulk with new AC policies (no more TRT, for one).

Well off TRT Rothwell is the perfect opponent to make Reem shine. Go watch Rothwell vs Gonzaga and tell me if that Rothwell stands much chance vs fight IQ Reem. Reem by guillotine after Rothwell shoots for a desperate double leg because he is getting tooled standing

Holly Holm is no longer a pure striker. She is a mixed martial artist. Striking did not beat grappling. A more complete fighter beat a less complete fighter.

I really hope so.
It would surely make the HW division a lot more exciting.

He's also too bulked to ever have good cardio. So no I don't see him ever coming good against the top guys in the div.
You say it wasn't tactical mistakes then you say he gassed and has bad defense.

Blow your wad so early trying to finish is a tactical mistake.

Lack of defense is a technical defencency
