    I have to admit, am impressed overall.
    But let's [email protected] last few opponents:


    • [*]Hendo- old
      [*]Cummin :icon_conf
      [*]Nelson
      [*]Mir
      [*]Some dude
      [*]Barnett
      [*]BF
      [*]Monson

    Big names, not quite mmas elite....

    Hendo is always badass and dangerous but c'mon he's an old mw how and if the H-bomb
    is deactivated. Last 5 fights were: 1-5.

    Bigfoots pretty similiar, although a lot less athletic, if you don't make error, its yours
    to win.

    Barnetts is also old and Monson.

    [email protected] one more b4 JBJ

    He's untested, because he's extremely good.

    All those guys are more gate-keepers.

    People confuse 'untested' with being so good that barely anyone can give you problems.

    barnett and mir are not gatekeepers. When he beat them they were rated elite in their division. bigfoot fought for the ufc hw title twice since dc knocked him out.

    He who has never defeated the champ, doesn't deserve to fight the champ.

    About 2 years into his MMA career, he KO Bigfoot who destroyed Fedor.

    DC arguably hasn't lost a round in his career. Untested as in nobody can make him fight? Yeah.

    Bigfoot was an elite when he beat Fedor but a chump when he lost to Cormier = Sherdog logic.

    Yeup. He's dominated ex-champs and a guy he steamrolled went on a tear and got a title shot in the hw division soo yeah saying he's untested is a joke.

    It is not that gatekeepers, do NOT get title shots,
    THEY DO. They're a litmus test which is failed occasionally.

    In fact, I think a classical gatekeeper will frequently get a title shot.
    Diff is from them and champs, is they don't keep it long.

    BF is a one-trick pony. I love the guys fights but it is what is is.
    Mir has always been a gatekeeper w lots of shots he never keeps and
    like most gatekeepers, he's
    had a diverse career w significantly varied highs and lows.

    Gatekeeper according to latest DSM:
    1. Gatekeeeper Def
    2. Dangerous litmus test of fighters level
    3. Always one to two steps from title fight
    4. If title is obtained doesn't keep past 1-2 defenses.
