    Idk why but I find it weird Johnson is 9-0 and is a prospect but also is 15-15 as a pro boxing journeyman

    I hope Johnson at least got payed well while boxing. No idea how/why they would match him up with guys like Clottey, Charlo, or Tapia.

    Most of his boxing losses have come to fighters with (on paper) very decent records. 6 of 'em were undefeated when he fought them, and all but one had winning records with few losses.

    UFC needs to clean up the bottom of the LW division with some cuts. Start with Ben Wall and Charlie Brenneman.

    ^if they keep guys like Brenneman then they are gonna have to give everyone 3 shots and they will have 150 LW fighters by the end of next year. I like Brenneman but you have to draw the line somewhere. If Dariush didnt just get smirched by Ramsey i might feel different about cutting Charlie, but thats 4 straight UFC losses total and 5 out of 6.

    Charlie is a company guy, he beat Story as a last minute replacement and then fought Beneil Dariush as a late replacement. He should get one more chance.

    But I like the way Brenneman's hair wiggles when he gets knocked out.

    Oh, you didn't know? He didn't just die against Castillo. His hair did too.

    Neither guy will fight for the belt.

    Not elite-level by any stretch.

    Because every guy in the company will fight for a belt? Both guys look like solid prospects, lets watch them fight a few times and see what they can do.

    EDIT: Rumored that Entwistle will be fighting newcomer Dan "The Hangman" Hooker at the UFN in New Zealand

    Entwistle is talented but has had some weight issues in the past.

    YES.
    Garrett Whiteley - 0-2 and has shown nothing to suggest he's top level.
    Fabricio Camoes should have gone by now, but has bafflingly been given another fight.
    Renee Forte - has now lost 2 in a row, his record is something like 8-4 and he came in overweight for his last fight, add him to the list.

    Plus the two you mentioned. Each division has a few fighters that should be gone, now. Too much chances.


    I could see this Johnson guy being the first opponent for Gilbert Burns.

    9-0 MMA all finishes and 15-15 pro boxer and all his losses have come to decent opponents. I don't think this guy is exactly a scrub.

    Entwistle looks fun as fuck. Heel hooks ftw.

    Forte was cut after his last loss, Whiteley should definitely be cut, but Camoes deserved another shot. That guy has been thrown to the wolves in the UFC.
