    The West Linn American Gangster making some solid points here.

    Justin’s been in several Main events training for five rounds which is tough.

    Tells Sherdoggers to cool it with the next matchup talk:

    Since when do the fans sign the contracts? It's up to Gaethje to decide when he wants to go again.

    I will let him know he is on vacation as soon as I mail out these 1.5% off Reebok clearance gear to the rest of the roster.

    He didn’t take damage.. fight again quick and get that money while you can. Everyone is talking about him right now. He should stay relevant. Chael knows this of all people

    If he wants a break he can take one.

    I'm not sure he does.

    Chael is the most brilliant and honest MMA analyst to ever grace this sport. These nuggets of wisdom are an utter delight to watch. Thank you TS.

  10. Yeah, but he didn't fight like Gaethje, did he? You silly fuck.

    Hopefully there are also more of these that don't count as a war.

    That's an unfitting nickname IMO. His finishes generally aren't spectacular (in the way a flying knee or wheel kick might be). But, glad to see him not take much damage in his last fight.

    His whole fights are highlights, and making your opponent fall like a tree is a pretty damn good highlight imo.

    And it mentally wore him down until he took a three year hiatus. He also didn't fight like a rabid badger.

    Doesn't have to be a crazy finish to be a highlight. It can be just being in a war

    or as simple as low-kicks.

    His finishes are nice as well though.

    Chael might the guy to replace Dana as a figurehead. He is much more appreciative of the fighters, while still giving room for the business aspect of the sport. He will have to put a little work in on his lying game, but to be fair no one lies quite like Dana.

    Rabid Badger is a much better nickname than Highlight.
