    What happened to MJ's insane hand speed??
    I've noticed in his last couple fights at FW, he just seems slower.
    I'm thinking it's either the weight cut or everyone is just way faster at FW, so he seems normal in comparison.

    Michael's Johnson looks smaller at fw. The increased weight cut has shrivelled up his balls.

    He should be at LW. Him and Pettis both had terrible ideas in going to FW. imo...

    If he looks slow, Emmett looks like a statue.

    He looks sloppy and nowhere near as powerful as he was at 155. Also seems like his chin is gone. He's a fraction of the fighter he was at 155

    He always finds a way to lose. It's so frustrating. He was doing well.

    Right I had him ahead in the fight. Emmett isn't someone he should be losing to.

    Yep he should try his luck back at 55. None of his wins at 45 were overly impressive. Both Sloppy. Especially given how tough the cut was this week from what we heard.

    He should have been playing that last round safe, he had the fight. Fight iq on par with Garbrandt

    I dunno, he fell pretty quickly after getting knocked out.
