    He have some great finishes but also boring decisions

    I think he is a very safe fighter like gsp was, and get great finishes because of his counter skills and opponent rushing making mistakes, and he capitalize well on it (whitakker, costa, etc)

    But if he can decision the shit out of you with low kick he will (romero, silva)

    So i think he is a boring fighter who can be exciting if you fight him the wrong way

    He is exciting, when not boring

    It depends on what you are looking for.
    His finesse, technique and the potential to finish the fight in a lny moment usually makes up for an exciting fight even when not much is happening.
    But not everyone is seeing it this way.

    I do, so for me he is exciting.

    Anderson is a better comparison. He has a lot of flashy finishes but also some of the most boring fights in UFC history. Similar styles too. I think a lot of it comes down to opponent. They match up better entertainment wise with more aggressive opponents.

    He is a flashy striker with a lot of cool kicks and spiny shit. He is helluva exciting. There is no debate

    Exciting. The only clear decision fight he had is Yoel and maybe one of the first fights he had in the ufc. The Anderson Silva fight was beautiful, I absolutely loved that one.

    The only boring fight was Romero, the Silva fight was more of a glorified sparring session.

    fighting opponents he can finish...he's fun...when he's fighting tight competition he bores the shit out of me...he becomes complacent and don't want to engage much...

    He is very technical and smart fighter. If you enjoy more from a bar brawl of two braindead rednecks so you'll hate him. If you love chess fight and thinking when you see fights so he is definitely one of the most exciting.

    Depends on the opponent. He is a helluva flashy when some comes rushing in mindlessly. Other than that he is a boring point machine who takes no risks.

    Mean what? He just throws variety of shots but is essentially point fighter who only finishes bum rushing meatheads. 6 decisions in 10 UFC fights solidifies my claim.

    I think undefeated fighter ultimately become stiff and too emotional - I think having him lose that status will loosen him up and hopefully get him to be exciting

    Tbf even in the Glory days he wasn't all that exciting

    Anderson had more boring fights like Leites and Maia.

    No way. Aside from maybe Tavares, everyone he decisioned in the UFC has a pretty good chin. The Yoel fight was an irregularity, Israel goes out there to put people down, not just win points.
