    He got rocked and stunned 3 or 4 times in his fight against Volkan. Yeah, he did KO volkan but He was very hittable and vulnerable in that fight. Rakic would butcher his legs with 4 or 5 leg kicks, then KO him with a high kick.

    He would also get destroyed by Jan, one good left hook counter from blachowicz would put him out cold.

    I was impressed but his style seems a bit chinny, way too much willingness to eat shots.

    Volkan did rock him but he is the only guy to sleep Volkan so I'm on the Jiri train. Won't be surprised if he gets caught tho

    He better shore up his defense.

    You know Floyd Mayweather respects the defensive skills of Jiri, Joe...

    He leads with his head way too much imo. If he can stop doing that, I'd like his chances a lot more.

    Meanwhile Rakic actually lost to Volkan. Regardless of what you think about the decision personally he went to a close decision with someone Jiri melted.

    Jan isn't some unbeatable knockout machine now lol. Santos starched him and has only had a few LHW fights, he had a bad showing against Jacare, knocked out chinny Anderson and Rockhold. He's definitely improved a lot but he's not some completely different fighter than the guy who was 2-4 in the UFC a couple years ago.

    Jiri is a force. He has limits for sure but we don't know where they are yet. He fought kind of dumb against Volkan and still won. Watch some of his other fights, the dude is something. He's what all the dumb Walker bandwagoners thought he was.

    Volkan is a good striker no shame in getting hit by him. Nobody has flatlined volkan like that

    No, he’s wild and has a glass chin. Big power though, he’s a new Johnny Walker

    He’s willing to put himself in the line of fire to deliver his own shots.

    I like his action style but definitely can be sniped. It’s just that, this is LHW where you just need to land that 1 shot.

    Rakic didn't even want to fight Jiri because he would win so easily, I guess <Lmaoo>

    205 is so wild & crazy I wish we could get a tournament. Rumble coming back, Jiri, Rakic, Santos, Reyes, & of course the champ Jan. Ankalaev on the come up too.

    Hands down by his hips while he bounced around doing martial arts poses versus Oezdemir didn't exactly incline me toward visions of him reigning over the division.

    He's definitely rough around the edges but 205 is wide open at the moment and Id favour Jiri vs Jan.

    I'd favor all of these guys against Jan:
    Jiri
    Rakic
    Ankalaev
    Santos
    Rumble when he comes back

    LHW looking like a shark tank

    Yea, he needs to be a bit more compact

    This thread needed to be made.

    His defense definitely needs some tweaking

    Hoping for the absolute best, I find it funny how he spent all fight vs Volcan tapping his chest and his hips around looking OCD

    If he tightened things up he’d be unstoppable. Right now he’s too kill or be killed. I’m still on the bandwagon though.
