    Damn nothing but heavy criticism for like 10 straight minutes now. I think theyre being a little harsh. Why are they going so hard on him?

    The no Spin zone. The lack of jabs and combos and rangefinding was jarring.

    No they aren't. Everything they are saying is 100% accurate. He needs a boxing coach badly. He'll getcwrecked doing that spinning shit and pilliw punching against higher ranked opponents.

    Maybe but they only focused on Rodriguez. No criticism of Caceres at all. And hes only 23 and I thought it was a great fight with beautiful technique and athleticism. Not your typical slow sloppy orthodox wrestle boxer you see so often. Some criticism ok but they went in HARD for a long ass time, like I was expecting them to start insulting his family next.

    They're old geezers, bro. These two guys purposely put on a spin fest for the crowd and fans, this is not indicative of how they would approach other fighters.

    Honestly, as this was supposed to be a showcase for Yair, the performance was underwhelming.

    That's because this fight was never supposed to be about Caceres.

    Dude, c'mon. This is how Yair has fought every single fight thus far in the UFC.

    He's got so much potential.. But he does need to tone it down


    I had no problems with the critique

    For real. These guys were determined to put on a show, and that's what they did. Fair play to them.

    Kind of. We've seen like three performances of Yair inside the UFC. And one of those was essentially a gimmick match meant to showcase flying and spinning shit.

    Did they talk about his lack of head movement, jabs and punches besides hooks?
