    in 40 professional fights!!

    Does anybody else come close to this?

    Only 4 losses, 2 split decision, 2 ages ago.

    Haters will hate but that is impressive.

    He's definitely on an impressive run, but man that's one STACKED division.

    Haters will always hate but for me the guy is one of the most exciting and best fighters out there at WW.

    Sure he's had limited opposition in the past at Bellator and yeah he may have had a couple of rather underwhelming performances in the UFC against Okami and Boetsch but the guy is legit, and yeah pretty impressive not to have been finished once.

    Love watching him fight- he's a genuine threat to anyone out there, and handled Shields like no other which is more impressive than many give credit for.

    Really good chin, super Judo skills, really tough to take down, has basically no neck to choke. Makes sense.

    He will be champ soon and Rory will be champ after him, I'm calling it.

    Go away TS, this forum is only for redundant rehashed JJ/GUS/DC threads.

    It's pretty amazing really, considering his somewhat weak cardio.

    Agree with the first part, not the 2nd if Hector is the champ when it happens. Rory will be in a world of hurt imo if Hector hasn't slowed a step.

    Not exactly faced a murderers row of opponents though has he?

    Plus I'd argue his real weakness isn't a lack of chin/sub defence but a lack of heart, put him under pressure and he gets too defencive.

    Cant' think to another fighter with such a streak without being finished, that's pretty impressive ...

    Megumi Fujii retired without being finished in 29 pro bouts, can't think to many more fighters with big records and no defeats via KO or sub.

    Extremely tough and great at defending himself. The one who came closest was actually Mousasi in Pride I believe. Took Hectors back many times and almost got the hooks in a couple times.
