    Victor is such a great fighter. I feel like he has the tools to be a top 3 fighter, at least but he's a young guy and the UFC didn't protect him. They match him with a beast like Magomedov. And then he had an absolute fluke loss which was corrupt as any stoppage in UFC history. And then for him to get knocked out like he did against Marcin is just unfair to the young guy who has so much potential. I feel terrible for him. I know sometimes life isn't fair, but it is so unusual to run into the things that Victor has ran into. He is a true victim of politics and circumstances.

    WTF he was losing the fight and had zero options on the feet. Nothing unlucky about this loss

    Except for Erokhin, he has though matchmakings against not big names but really good fighters on Ruslan and Tybur

    Sounds a lot like Gus or Fejiao. Has all the tools but can't use them at the same time.

    He kept throwing that counter hook for an entire round, very robotic. So to me he has not showed much at all. He might be a beast in training though and have immense nerves when fighting live.

    I get the feeling that you may be biased OP, because he looked like garbage.
