    Hard to believe that Felder lost to Mike Perry.

    Felder has a great style to maximize his advantages but Perry being bigger and stronger seemed to negate his entire game... also a broken arm didn’t help.

    Turns out the last 3 Felder fights have gone to split decisions, probably meaning his fights could have gone one way or the other.

    Which is kind of weird to me but at this point he'd like to have some finishing power since he's probably not gonna be gunning for any sort of title on splits :(

    Well if RDA does indeed go on to fight Makhachev he will keep this curse alive by soundly losing to him.

    If he fights Conor, the trend will continue for sure

    Pearson was a gangster in his short lived prime, the guy arguably beat Barboza and could strike with anybody.

    Trinaldo lighting his ass up was the most shocking for me. Trinaldo is underrated but the way he won was surprising.

    If you fight paul felder, you're really not doing well in the sport. Paul Felder is awful. He's the next generation of Clay Guida, unskilled, aloof, incredibly unremarkable ... but for some reason the UFC gives him jobs. In comes felder, and they throw him in the booth and on TV shows ... meanwhile, he still fucking sucks ... yet that dork Guida is probably hanging dry wall somewhere.
