    Are these the right fights to make? Or even the right guys to call out? Doo ho isnt event ranked i think.

    Choi is a perfect fight for him, but he's in the army IIRC...


    ...and Cub should cut to BW

    Needs to fight a LW next, dude looks like the black machinist at FW

    The LW version of MJ would have destroyed a fighter like Fili but that drawn out version almost lost to him

    Michael Johnson should be at 155. His power is gone at 145 and it’s not that fun to watch him anymore.

    He looked much slower and less explosive against fili. It was very bizarre. He almost seemed white.

    Cub should stay at FW and MJ should stay at LW. There's no way cub makes 135 without cuttin an arm off.

    I guess he saw that Khabib roadblock in his way, knew he'd never get past it and moved down but he looks straight up bad at FW

    And Holloway would still drown him in pace and volume just like Khabib did he'd just do it on the feet so I don't see the thought process behind the move. Just seems altogether less dangerous without a massive hand speed edge

    Moving down was definitely an overreaction, there are a whole lot of LWs who would lose to Gaethje and Khabib

    I don't see Johnson cracking top ten at FW. He looks worse and worse in nearly every fight

    I actually like the MJ v. Swanson fight.

    I struggle to see him beating most of the top 15 tbh

    If Cub's chin is shot he has a chance so I guess that's his best option. That or a returning Emmett who hasn't really proven he deserves his ranking at all

    But I'd even pick a guy as unproven as Yair over him at this point just on speed and power alone. Which given the speed and power MJ had at LW seems a little crazy to say

    I'd enjoy the fight but both would just be a filler fight now. Not rank worthy. I really thought MJ would be a force at LW...It's obvious even with his win that he doesn't belong at FW...Cub should be fighting Yair as Yair's comeback fight.

    This forum, and the topics, aren't as fun as they used to be.

    Still will watch about every time the product is on.

    Should go back to 155

    His speed is either affected by the weight cut or he's just not very quick compared to other 145ers

    Whatever--he's an overrated fighter. Looked good coming into the UFC but never got to the top level. Competition is too tough at 155 and he's too big to be effective cutting to 145.
