    Hoping they offer Cerrone some big bucks so he could save this fight. At this point they could just make it a catch-weight, as long as someone steps up to fight him the JBG will be pleased.

    <FookIsThatGuy> Dariush's last two fights did not impress me.

    I agree didn't one of them end with him dropping and stretched out the like a head shot victim?

    Probably Aubin-Mercier with Burns now scheduled against Lando this one makes a lot of sense

    Got robbed against Dunham
    Won against Barboza on the feet, got hit by a knee that would knock everybody out
    Won easily against Chiesa on the feet, got submitted by a 4 inch taller and bigger weight cutter

    Unlucky guy

    Sorry, can't agree with that at all. Dariush went for that jab-double combination so many times, made it so fucking obvious it was almost like begging for a knee to the face. Barboza, being the superior striker, read that perfectly and delivered the best possible strike in style.

    Someone who "won on the feet" doesn't make such an obvious mistake in standup and doesn't get KOd brutally.

    This. His losses don't tell the full story of his abilities. Big fan.

    He was doing really well in the stand up prior, I still see potential in him.

    He was way too predictable with the jab-double combo and that's what cost him the fight. Not enough fight IQ.
