    This happened during the fight. Not "after the fight"

    If you're going to try to zing a fighter, be better at zinging

    It's in the book
    He should worry less about the quality of his opponents and more about how to stop fighting like Conor McGregor on horse tranquilizers.

    I find it so interesting that you say something like that... People have probably been asking themselves that question since the beginning of any organized combat sport; so i guess that means no-one ever learns lol. I have no problem with showmanship or gamesmanship- trying to get inside your opponents head, can absolutely be beneficial. But in order to play mind games, you better make sure that YOU have a sound mind to begin with, and don't get too caught up in the shit talking.

    Glassjaw Gunnar. Reminds me of Machida. Great technical martial artist, but can't take a hit on the chin without getting ko'd.

    Lmao Perry would shatter Gunnar's glass chin. He is the hardest hitting WW in mma with an iron chin.

    He probably manhandles the greatest of all time, McGregor, regularly, so his confidence must be high.

    I really like Gunnar. His skills are legit but he has a bad habit of underestimating his opponents. That's part of what got him in trouble with Maia.

    He really needs to start treating every opponent like a threat or else he'll start losing fights he should otherwise win.

    Hall hit Mousasi with one of his laughable spinning kicks exactly when Moose was lowering his head,after being dominated in the first round. Gunni got KO'd after 2 punches,after 1 minute and a half,and always had subpar striking defense.

    Yeah, I have no problem with confidence but understand what's in front of you and, hey, you're human.You have a jaw and temple like everyone else and in this sport (hands,elbows,knees, legs,feet)- anything can happen.

    well maybe his quote is legitimate, but his assessmeent of his own skills and his oponent's skills were very innacurate
