He can also lose via sub. Oliveria gets subbed more than he should.
Yeah Oliveira had no business at FW, he's a decent sized LW.
I think what people (well, some people) have yet to realize is how much his striking has improved. He's just worlds better standing now than he was even 3-4 years ago. His footwork, timing, ability to mix up attacks, literally every part of his striking game has improved.
Lee's head kick of Gregor was brilliant too though. So he could also be taking big steps in his striking with Firas at the helm of his coaching.
Damn, Walker about to lose second fight in a row. Krylov going to bowl over him badly.
FKL vs Do Bronx....awesome fight. Props to Lee for taking a guy so low, although many arguments can be made that Charles is getting the shaft in the rankings.
Islam wanted none of that Tri-Star Lee.........
I am disappointed FKL didnt face Izlamb.
I dont get how Ali would be refusing Islam from what he wants while keeping him and Khabib as clients.
I'm glad FKL wanted the fight because for the first time its raising lots of questions as to why UFC isnt giving Islam any ranked opponents.
Well the questions were raised before but there wasnt much evidence that he was being cock blocked whereas now there is
Hoping Chuck wins but I see FKL getting the win by stoppage
Awww man. FKL vs the new and improved Do Bronx. If I have to pick one to win I go FKL, but it would be awesome to see Do Bronx get some higher ranked guys to see where he's really at.
Oliveira is legit but hes also lost every step up in competition hes taken
I can see why the UFC wouldn't want to match up islam and FKL. It would've been an amazing matchup for the fans
But it's also two guys with serious contender potential
Its smarter to build them both up separately and peak their popularity
Either one of them losing, it would take a lot of steam off them.
It's also possible Islam ducked
That would've been among the toughest fights he can possibly take, if not the toughest
That card is better than the Jan. 18 card.
Should be on ppv
Islam has been asking for it for 2 years.
Going with Kevin Lee via TKO
No its not
Do Bronx has been able to outwrestle guys like Brooks, Lentz, and Elkins. I wouldn't be surprised to see Lee have trouble throwing him around.
This will give us an idea if Tristar Kevin Lee is ready to make a title run
Oliveira is no joke
I don't like all these weight cuts for Lee.
Brilliant matchmaking. This is where Oliveira shows his visible ceiling though, he always falls short against top competition after destroying mid-lower level guys.
