    DHC fighting Cub
    Sage fighting Gall (who we all knew was legit on the ground)
    Vanzant fighting Waterson
    Perry should honestly try to cut to 155, he's too small and his reach is atrocious at 170

    Young prospects are no strangers to love.

    They know the rules, and so do I.

    DHC had cub rocked and wobbled just as many times as cub had him.

    I don't understand why he got exposed. It's not as if cub showed he had no ground game and just grapple fucked him to prove he was one dimensional or something like that. And the jouban and perry fight was great fun to watch. It was a 15 minute stand up fight. One guy just landed better shots whilst also getting rocked and wobbled himself. They lose good fun fights that they have been competitive in.

    This is not being exposed. Sage has been exposed.

    Edit. Sorry ts I realise you did not say exposed anywhere. But @HelloJapan did so I ran with it.

    Fucking lol at Sage, Gall is one of the easiest fights in the UFC. Sage got dropped by a super sloppy punch.

    A lot of prospects getting taken out in such a short window is crazy. I don't think it's mismanagement as much as it is a crazy sport, taking big fights = taking big risks but having high rewards. None of those looked like mismatches on paper (or on the Vegas odds).

    the problem isnt who they are fighting, but they are not very good. paige and sage were chosen based on looking like all americans. But paige has very little talent. she is scrappy and athletic....thats it. sage has no ground game

    Perry wasn't too small

    He was too much of a can with no skill.

    Gall got lucky. Sage was piecing him up and then Gall landed a sloppy Hail Mary punch on a clinch break while Sage was fixing his hair. Bullshit.

    Would they be better off listening to sherdoggers who said DHC was going to run through Cub?

    Gall won most of the fight before dropping and submitting Sage. He didn't get lucky and would beat Sage 7 or 8 times out of 10.

    If they were born ass kickers, they would beat anyone anywhere or die trying. Fuck padding your record bullshit...worse comes to worse, there is always Bellator.

    nah worst management for a young up and comer still goes to Myles Jury for taking that Cerrone fight in 2015.

    seriously bad bad decision that just may have totally derailed a promising career.

    only 2 fights in 2 years, both losses, made him lose his confidence so bad he went down a weight class and looked even worse.

    Bad management?

    You fight who the fucking company assigns you. This isn't boxing ya walking talking glob of afterbirth.

    DHC vs Cub was a great fight for Choi. Last we saw Cub, he was questioning himself and thinking about retiring. Who could've expected the best version of Cub we've ever seen? And Dana kept saying Choi would be marketed heavily if he won, and could be a superstar. That was great management to make that fight.


    As for the other guys, this is MMA -- specifically, this is the UFC. You don't get easy fights and you can't fight the bottom of the barrel forever. If you think there's some way to manage Sage's career where he didn't ultimately lose a bunch of fights, you just don't know what you're watching.

    Both Sage and PVZ fought cans in UFC. Just stop saying they are rushing them in, they got gimme fights in UFC like nobody before. And just because they look good.
