    Almost all of these fighters are still very young

    Sage: 20
    PVZ: 22
    Perry: 25
    Doo Ho Choi: 25

    Still have plenty of time to get better

    People lose man. Silva 4 losses before he became the dominant spider we knew. GSP had 2. Fedor lost, shit Conor had 2 and got a 3rd one just before pulling into the 2 division champ station. Losses don't matter, it's how you bounce back that defines the fighter.

    Doo Ho Choi is a very different case, he put up a very tough fight against a veteran in Cub Swanson. No hype, no train derailed. The Superboy is already a reality.

    PVZ is tough but should work on those skills soon, 'cause she hasn't shown much. Sage, as much as I kinda like his persona, looks like an amateur on the ground. Really hope he improves though, I'd be glad for him.

    Perry on the other hand is just a bum, a brawler with a tattoo on his ugly face.

    Yeah Doo Ho Choi fought and he lost. He got his ass kicked. It doesn't matter if he can survive with the top 10, he needs to be able to win or else he would fit the definition of hype train derailment

    Perry is actually 20. They increased his age by 5 years when he was only 3 because he was knocking out 8 year olds.
