There are a minority of fans that continue to say stuff like "Chris just got unlucky" and he was "beating all three of those guys easily" before he got "caught." I've rewatched all three of these fights recently, and here's my assessment: Myth: He was 'beating' Yoel Weidman only barely won the 1st round with "takedowns" that did nothing, and couldn't keep Yoel down for more than two seconds. Yoel decisively won the 2nd round by outstriking, and then completely ragdolling Chris. He scored three takedowns, and ended the round on top after holding Weidman down and landing G&P for over twenty seconds. Teh Chris was also more visibly gassed than Yoel at this point, which is why he shot for a sloppy takedown in the 3rd that got him KO'd. Pretty much the same deal for the Luke fight, Chris barely won the 1st, got easily beaten in the 2nd, and looked sloppy and gassed by the 3rd. Against Moose, clearly won the 1st, but landed zero damage, and then wasted his energy on meaningless takedowns, shot for another sloppy one which was stuffed, then was saved from a torrent of LEGAL knees after the ref made a mistake. If that was too long for you to read, he lost to three superior fighters. No hate on teh Chris though, he's still mah boi.
