    Is there anybody in the UFC right now with worse form? Why hasn’t he been cut?

    Jake is fighting Bryan Barberena on the next card.

    Well that's like the Diaz bros combined record but they still have a cult-like following.

    He's still young, getting better and more experience. If he sticks with the sport, he will be challenging for a title in a few years. He's on the same career trajectory as Erick Silva.

    100 percent this. The crazy thing is there was a time where Jake definitely appeared to be a durable guy but since Robby finished him with strikes back in 2014, five of the six losses he's had have been by way of stoppage (most with strikes, one by submission).

    I think he's a good dude and was on a hell of a tear during 2010 and 2011, but it may be time to call it a career.

    In Nates last 5 fights, he is 3-2 having only lost to RDA and Conor, LW champions. In Nicks last 5 fights, he is 2-2-1 having only lost to GSP and Condit, the latter being debatable, but also former champions. They are a combined 5-4-1 in their last 10 fights. That is hardly comparable to Ellenberger being 2-8 and losing to many lower level guys.

    Burkman put Fitch to sleep after Fitch left the UFC and talked a bunch of trash, so he gets a pass.

    Dana fucked him one time so no way he's getting cut. That's the only logical explanation.

    Every fighter has an expiration date... and Jake has definitely past his best before...

    At one time, the guy was one of the best WW's in the world. That time has passed.

    His war with Diego Sanchez took a toll on the man, and the KO to Kampmann was a defining moment. While he still has power in his hands, his chin and speed have diminished so much, that it is dangerous for him to be facing elite WW's anymore.

    I hope he calls it a career soon, win or lose to Barbarena.. I'm a fan none the less...

    He was 8-2 in his first 10, 2-8 in his last 10. Pretty crazy turn of events.

    But it was Edmond that ruined any potential he had.
