    Next fight for the Chris? I thought Jacare was going to retire if he didn’t get a title shot?

    That was a slick choke against Branch, fan of Hermansson for life after that.

    Chris is a pretty bad matchup for him

    Would rather see Chris utilized to keep Theodorou out of decisioning his way into contention

    The guy is a beast, hope he gets that Jacare fight if Yoel is out.

    He deserves it after that performance. I'll watch him fight again for sure.

    I watched all Cage Warriors and stuff from over there I could get and whatever for years as they happened,so for me it's cool to see him come into his own in the big show,and that comeback over Leites is still bananas.Dudes on fire,still young,improves every fight,but mostly he's got that fighters mentality that can get people farther than they should.

    For me though,he has little basic skills apart from toughness and tenacity..his boxing is shit,his subs are actually pretty nasty while archaic,his wrestling is bleh,his positional grappling is his weakest at best when it comes to the highest level.Some of his reversal's I have just laughed at,sometimes his fights are like 4th graders on the playground reversing eachother over and over.The guy basically thrives at being super tough and I don't see a high ceiling for him.I hope he continues to improve (like he is),but let's be realistic,he's not the type of fighter that you bet on,he's the type of fighter you throw money on cause he's just dangerous....but it's mma and i'm always wrong,just like you,it's why it's fun,but imo he won't get far.But i'm down with hoping,cause it's always a pleasure to watch him compete and he's a super likeable guy.

    People don't need to be champions for me to be a big fan,most Sherdoggers don't seem to get this concept.

    The guy is 6-2 in the UFC, and on a 3 fight winning streak. How is he a Top 10 fighter?

    He actually subbed Branch, which in this case it's all the more impressive than a KO cause Branch is a JJ black belt and was completely fresh.

    Is it confirmed that Romero is out of that bout? If so I think Hermansson would be a cool replacement but maybe he is still ranked a bit too low to fight Jacare.

    What do you mean? He just soundly beat the #11 ranked guy, of course he was gonna be ranked.

    Not sure why he is ranked ahead of Tavares but honestly who cares about that.

    The only other time I saw him was when Thiago Santos obliterated him with ease. Back then I was expecting to hear about Jack being cut.
    Now he is ranked, I'm chuffed. We've got a nordic guy up with the big boys, which is a nice novelty.

    Bro, did you see Hermansson's arm-triangle defence against Leites (arm-triangle specialist with 8 finishes in such a manner), Jack is the legit BJJ player.
