    He already beat the champ (2012, Strikeforce, MW).

    Solid finish win tonight in his WW debut.

    Fast hands, fast feet.

    Robbie Lawler
    Johny Hendricks
    Rory MacDonald
    Tyron Woodley
    Carlos Condit

    One of the worst robberies I have seen in a while. It was not a close decision, flat out robbery.

    The poll is drunk. It wouldnt let me submit without checking at least one box. That, to me, says the poll thinks Larkin can beat any of the fighters listed, which he cant. And he wont.

    *whatever the opposite of "War Larkin" is*

    I give him a shot vs Saffeiedene. I dont like his chances vs the rest.

    I think guys like Hendricks, Story and Gastelum would give him lots of trouble.

    I like Larkin, but you're getting carried away TS. I don't think he beats any of those guys.

    He shouldn't be anywhere near them either, he just won a loser leaves town fight.

    Larkin looked scary good in the Welterweight Division.

    I would have to say Demian Maia as long as he avoids grappling with him he does not want to be on the ground.
