    Eddie just got ktfo by a bum in one fc and he was absorbing Gaethje's bombs like nothing

    Somebody was going out in that fight, Eddie just fought to kill or be killed

    Timofey ain't a bum. Also Eddie is getting older and has taken too many shots to the head.

    Fight IQ was full mong.

    If Gaethje ever decides to mix up his wrestling with his striking, he could be champ.

    He was slamming mo-foz on their heads early in his career.

    Yes he is

    He's lost to absolute cans recently, which makes him an even more definitive can

    Who are the "absolute cans" he lost to recently? Dagi ain't no can. Actual fans knew Tim Nasty was a total banger who could easily hurt and finish Eddie.

    Alvarez is past his prime and only fighting for a pay check, his only motivation to go to one is money, I’m sure he isn’t training as hard

    He’s also 35 now...

    You should be able to believe Eddie beat Gaethje ts. Just cause he's lost some fights doesn't mean Eddie doesnt have one of the most complete resumes in mma history, he didnt slip on banana peels to earn the resume.

    Eddie is beyond overrated and the most unskilled ranked UFC fighter I think I've ever seen.

    He is less skilled than Derrick Lewis, who at least has a solid chin and one punch KO power.

    How did Eddie become champ in Bellator and the UFC then? By sucking?

    Good lord this is why I don't come here that often anymore. The man with the most complete resume in lightweight history is nowhere near the most unskilled anything you've seen. Grow up.

    The fact that you couldn't name any of the "absolute cans" Tim lost to recently or provide any sort of analysis on them shows how much you're actively paying attention.

    So you made a thread based on your complete ignorance of the nuances of pro sport.

    Its not top trumps, fighters cant compete to their maximum abilities every time out.

    There are always factors that influence fights e. g. Jetlag, age, poor camps, 2 things at least that wouldve caused eddie to perform far below how he did against Gaethjie.

    Are you really this ignorant to this thing called form, as in being in and out of form?

    Its not top trumps kid

    They're both brawlers with shithouse grappling but one has a good chin and KO power, and it's not Chinny Eddy

    Lewis is also a much better kicker lol

    Yeah, gotta feel for Eddie, if he was more conservative and fought like he did against Gaethje, he'd have a lot more longevity. Dude has the tools to be Champion and he's become it in the past, but the damage he's taken is irreversible and he can't afford not to change up his style.

    He's got power, he can land bombs, but is SEVERELY lacking in the technical department, and lacks head movement.
