    I still don't understand why the UFC let Mousasi go ...

    Nobody talking about Milliner. He is middleweight too. Good prospect

    Such a hot and cold division. Hope at least a couple of the young lions step up.

    See I love Kelvin

    He's my little Mexican money printing machine

    And I think he knocks jacare out stiff

    However I think that's his ceiling at MW

    Borrachina.

    And, if Adesanya improves his TDD I could see him becoming a contender. He's going to take an L or two, but he's still 28, tons of time to improve that side of his game.

    I'm a fan of both guys.

    Me too.

    He’s going to struggle against the younger, bigger, stronger, faster MW’s mentioned by the OP.

    He really should try hard to change his diet/lifestyle and get back to WW where he really belongs. He would fuck up guys like Covington and I’d pick him over Wonderboy and RDA. Him and Woodley need to rematch.

    Don't forget about Oskar Piechota. That dude has some legitimate potential aswell.

    I was impressed too, Hendricks really gave it a good go there, best performance in a while from him, he just faced a much bigger stronger physically gifted opponent, Hendricks threatened him at times.

    He was slipping punches and countering with big lefts, never seen him use technique like that in his career. I was expecting Costa to gas and for Hendricks to take over but it was not to be.

    Lets hope the UFC doesn't use the same old trick of matching two fighters with momentum against each other and losing a prospect while building another, use gatekeepers such as Brunson to build them

    No, he won't. He was KO'd by a WW. That means he is always one shot away from getting KO'd again.

    Milliner?

    Never heard of him.

    Are you talking about Curtis Millinder, the WW?

    He's got a future in the top 10 I think.
