    How about that soccer kick from "ya boi"

    Been a fan of his cause of what he did for Alabama football, but where should the UFC rank him after this win? It's a shame he didn't do little more vs Machida even tho he still arguably won.

    He at least deserves to be ranked in the top 15 now imo. You still got guys who don't deserve to be in it like Uriah Hall an Elias Theodorou...

    Despite a close fight with Machida, he doesn't have any notable win yet. He was hyped too soon and now they are building him up at a more suitable pace.

    University of Alabama. It's a saying, as they are called Alabama Crimson Tide.

    Isn't Yoel Romero the 2nd best MW in world?

    An the Brunson fight was just cause it was early in the fight. I don't think that would happen again or if the fight lasted longer

    He didn't look that good against a bum until the KO. He is a finisher. Bring him up slow. Next vs Brunson. Lets see if his finishing ability does so.

    Had to watch the kick 5 times in slow motion just to see if it was even legal.

    Eryk is lucky as all fuck. He is a clueless fighter who with .02 more seconds of Williams fingertips touching the ground, would be DQ'd instead of post fight bonus. That kick was not good timing, it was stupidity and luck.

    So that kick alone makes him a stupid fighter? What other examples are you going off of?

    I do like the Brunson match up too but since he's fighting Adesanya I think he should fight Brad Tavares

    Yes. He was highly likely to be DQ'd. I honestly think he had no clue if his hand was even on the ground or not even though it was plain as day. What an idiot. As for other examples, just look at the rest of his performance. He didn't deserve that performance bonus. He is going nowhere in the UFC.
