    What a gritty performance against a tough vet like Hall. Middleweight has another contender

    Interesting guard and shoulder rolls. Maybe it worked cause it was Uriah, but I'd like to see that against Gastelum, Whittaker, etc.

    For real. And against an opponent who pretty much helped make sure your game plan was executed.

    Let's not get to ahead of ourselves TS, Strickland's strengths in the Striking are easily negated by his lack of Killer Instinct, and passive nature, tonight he fought like he couldn't give a SHIT about finishing Uriah and damn near did everything in his power to not finish him, he won't be getting away with that shit against the Top 5.

    He fights so casually for someone that talks crazy, and went for some EXTREMELY questionable takedowns throughout the fight, when he could have swarmed Uriah and stopped him instead. He's got a good flicking Jab, and some fast hands, but THAT'S It.
