    Does anyone listen to his weekly chat?.........

    I used to like listening to him, mostly b/c it was MMA chat; after listening to him the last few weeks, he sometimes talks like the UFC is the flavor of the week; and puts in a plug for Bellator when he can...

    Then I hear him sayin how he's 6'4 240 plus lol.. And trying to show the viewers how to do specific BJJ techniques in a small, ghetto room. This guy thinks he is Gods gift to MMA analysis .. But I guarantee 90 % of the actual diehard mma fans, that have been around from the inception would crush this ignorant dude and he'd be eating crow.......!!

    He says obvious things, but disguise them as 'insight' by using a more academic language.

    Start using thesaurus for posts and it will be about the same.

    A lot of people like him.. I used to. But that guy is a male snot. Delusional! watch a few analysis in a row and you'll see a trend. Or you might not. lol
    we can agree to disagree

    I usually play his podcast "or whatever you wanna call it" while i'm doing chores. While I don't agree with everything he says, he generally has interesting things to say.

    His self-seriousness is part of the charm. This is the guy who coined the term "promotional malpractice".

    He has some good analysis and intersting shit to say, i won't disagree with that..He's just arrogant, or maybe it's the posters that ask him questions on his chat. I dunno, he rubs me the wrong way now.. Almost like a boxing wanna be purist, turned MMA lol

    I don't watch his videos/ listen to his chat or the mma beat. His "picks" have pretty much devolved into "these are the betting favourites and why they should win". I can barely remember a time he picked against the favourite in a main card bout.
