    I absolutely despise his fighting style.

    But what won me over is his character after the Till fight.

    What a humble and classy man. Professional through and through.

    Hendricks > Wonderboy, though.

    He’s a class act. A great representative of the sport.

    He seems like a great guy, but his fighting style just grates on me, which makes it very difficult to be a fan.

    Kind of the opposite of Conor McGregor and Jon Jones. Exciting fighting styles, but they're such douchy people that I can't be a fan.

    Nah. Wonderboy is too inactive. He lacks aggression.

    If they were scared, Wonderboy was equally as scared. He was just as inactive.

    I think he meant Hendricks robbery > Wonderboy robbery.

    Based on how till won, Wonderboy should have won for being agressive against woodley right? Hypocrites.

    I don't think I've ever seen a fighter look so helpless as Hendricks did in that fight

    I wasn't making an opinion on who should've won, I was addressing your comment about fighters being scared.

    What did Till do when he backed Thompson up? Nothing.... He wouldn't even commit to a punch till round 5... Scared as hell.

    Difference being Wonderboy was the challenger, and thus needed to win more definitively.

    Lol stop. You're posting a gif of a round Till clearly won.

    Regardless of how the judges saw the fight, Wonderboy did absolutely nothing to convince people he is worthy of another title shot. That fight was a bad look for him, so your posts dont really make sense.
