    Usman is WAY too well rounded for meek.

    That said, hoping Meek can at least land a couple of good shots before getting worked.

    The UFC knows he beats the majority of the top 10 and doesn't want him to be champ


    They think he's boring so they'll keep giving him nobodies so nobody knows who he is. Then when he eventually losses(they all do) they can cut him.

    Just wait for it


    Or this is one of the last fights on his deal and dont' want to pay him big money if he beats a top 10 fighter. One or the other but prolly more to the boring part

    He's the best grappler in the division. Good chance he could even control Maia for 3 rounds. The UFC needs to stop fucking around and give this dude the step up he deserves. This fight is a waste.

    Wtf is going on with the matchmaking at welterweight? First we get Till v Cerrone which is a terrible matchup imo and now this.

    Yeah Usman deserves way better. His little rant with Helwani is aging well.
