    Last year, David Teymur beat Lando Vannata in the co-main event of UFC 209, it was a fantastic fight and was awarded FOTN.

    Back in December he was then relegated to the prelims of UFC 208 where he beat the then undefeated prospect Drakkar Klose, it wasn't a great fight but that was because Klose was being whiny and refused to engage.

    Now he's fighting Don Madge, a 7-3 UFC newcomer on the undercard of a UK Fight Night.

    It's ridiculous, Teymur is 4-0 in the UFC and not only can he not a ranked opponent, but he can't even get of the many higher profile unranked Lightweights in the UFC.

    After Teymur beat Lando, Lando got Bobby Green who is a bigger name than Klose or Madge.

    Yeah when i seen it, i thought it was the younger brother. The UFC is garbage. Go to bellator and get a title shot within 2 fights. Why not?

    That sucks.

    But looking at it on the bright side:
    * An easier fight might give him a nice finish for the highlight reels
    * Some padding is good for building a long undefeated streak. When you start reaching 5 fight win streaks in the UFC, it starts getting harder to deny you a good fight the next time.

    Lando blessed him with a fight of the night and attention and he kicked it all away.

    Yeah, I shook my head when I saw that too.

    It's bizarre how the UFC just refuses to push some guys. It's fucking weird.

    Same thing with the entire flyweight division. Every complains about DJ fighting nobodies, but the UFC don't help by putting flyweight fights almost exclusively in the prelims. I remember Moraga went from the Fight Pass Prelims to a championship fight, then straight back to the Fight Pass Prelims.

    The UFC seems to love shooting itself in the foot.

    We all know why he was on the main event.

    [​IMG]

    Despite the fact that Lando Blessed him with the Groove... he has not embraced the Groove. He gave it a hell of a try with his rendition of "Viva Las Vegas"... but it just didn't feel right. His close decision win is a formality. People want the Groove... not just "watch your underwears" guy.

    A very promising young and exciting to watch fighter, who was no personality and can't speak English.

    He isn't marketable. I did find his fight with Klose very entertaining though idc what Sherdog says.

    He is like a less technically sound RDA at times it's very interesting to watch.

    They do it all the time.

    Ray Borg fought might mouse in the co-main of UFC 216. Now he will fight on the fight pas prelims of the fight night Chile card. His gets rescheduled after Conner injures him. And he gets the sweet fight pass prelims spot.

    Teymur should get a better manager. With his skills, he should be fighting better opponents than he is getting now.
