    He looked like he was standing almost sideways to make himself a smaller opponent to hit, like Loiseau did. Anyone else notice this? I forget who Loiseau was facing, I think it was Franklin, but they looked the same.

    I believe Louseau's game plan was to make himself smaller from strikes or a harder target to hit but was left open to the take down. That is exactly how Menjivar lost tonight. Although, Franklin destroyed Louseau, Menjivar still lost. I didn't think I would ever see this style again.

    Weird gameplan they set up at that Tristar.

    **EDIT**

    I actually found it. It was Franklin. Fast Forward to 3:55. They talk about the stance for like a whole minute. I believe they talk about it a few more times later in the rounds.

    Also if someone knows the exact fight where Louseau did this please feel free to correct me. But, I am 99% sure it was Franklin.

    Menjivar did not look impressive at all. :(

    I was pulling for him too.

    I thought this was about how gun shy Menjivar looked

    Well that too. Over all just didn't look like Menjivar we seen in the past.

    Menjivar is like, 150 years old in terms of fight years. Dude's been around for 13 actual years and is only 31. Crazy...
