Something overlooked in Lim vs Saffedine

A lot of people were talking about Lim's massive weight cut and how it might contribute to a poor gas tank, but he actually seemed to be doing fine late into the fifth round. Maybe it's not as bad as some were making it out to be.

I think with some better striking defense, this guy could easily become a top 10 ww for many years.

His weight cut is massive, maybe he's just able to handle it well. Some fighters are whereas some aren't.

yea i could see it. nothing too bad to say from that preformance but i also dont have a lot if good things too say either. Tarec got himself a nice win in all but that fight did not rustle my jimmies in any way. if anything i think it produced the next gate keep for the top 15. cool fight i guess

I think Saffiedine could break into the top 10.

Don't forget he was coming off a year layoff.

are you kidding me lol, top 10 ww when he cant even throw a jab

he isn;t getting anyway near the top 10 (lim) just by fixing his striking defence when his striking in general is poor

Who thought Weidman would be knocking out Anderson Silva(almost twice) after his abysmal striking performances vs Sakara and Maia?

both of their tanks had depleted as badly as each others by that point! they were still looking busy but most of lim's strikes, up til the last 20 seconds or so had nothing on them... but he's probably a few fights away at least from having to worry about a 4th or 5th round so i don't know if it'll be as much of a factor
