    In Rivera’s most recent fight he was very gunshy against Sterling. Afraid to navigate through Sterling’s range to enter the pocket. It seemed like he didn’t like the idea of taking in any damage to get to his range.

    Against Dodson it was a staring contest which is most of Dodson’s fights.

    He’s fighting Petr Yan next who is going to be in the pocket slugging it out with him which will tell a lot of where Jimmie is as a contender, or if he’s done.

    once you get knocked out brutally, it changes alot of fighters for the worse.

    true, What i really meant is this is the first time he has been stopped, after 20+ fights that can screw with a fighter's mindset bad.

    Sterling is better than people give him credit for and Dodson is boring like 90% of the time

    I'm not sure I'm seeing the same thing you are TS

    I will say I expect Yan to win regardless though

    In between rounds for the Sterling fight his corner asked him what was wrong with him and he said he just wasn't feeling it. Sounds weird but I'm pretty sure anyone here that's played sports has had games where they just felt slow to react and like they couldn't do shit.

    Who knew getting kicked in the head causes problems.

    It turned GSP from Rush into zzz.

    Double entendre.

    His wife probably demanded he play it safe, although he wasn't exactly a banger before the KO. <45>
