    It's unfortunate that he has the personality of a clipped toe nail and has a very short stature, but literally everything about him is good. I think he absolutely out classes Dodson on Sep 5th.

    If he gets past Dodson, he'll be well on his way to beating Silva's streak. Most dominant champ in any current weight class, never really been tested aside from a few moments in first Dodson fight, Top notch wrestling, striking, grappling, insane gas tank. I have a hard time watching flyweights fight, but I always like watching him and Dodson. and...


    Mighty Mouse > Dodson > TJ > Barao > Faber > Pulver > BJ > Serra > GSP > Shields > Hendo > Shogun > Overeem > Werdum > Cain > Brock Lesnar

    If my MMA math is correct, would completely out class any fighter in any weight class.

    (Slightly trolling, but I do believe he is one of the best right now)

    No he's not.




    He's really good though.

    I remember back when skilled fighters had so much skills that they could take on the best competition, even heavier. Not saying he should fight Stefan Struve, but y'know, TJ?

    Most skilled, but also most boring. Don't really care much about his personality, but his fighting style isn't the most most exciting. If he had more fights and KOs like the Benavidez one I'd be more inclined to watch him.

    He's really really really good.

    Unfortunately this thread will fill with people trying to discredit the guy, so I am out.

    He's great and I don't have any issue buying his PPVs.

    I won't disagree with you there TS. The guy's definitely up there, he doesn't get the respect he deserves.

    Eventually Yes, also I would slightly favor MM over TJ, that would be a sweet match up.

    No he's not. When you're that small compared to the average fighter, physics work significantly in your favor due to the square-cube law (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square-cube_law#Biomechanics), and your biomechanics is fundamentally different from normal-sized fighters.

    That's why cats can fall 5 stories and land on their feet uninjured. That's why if you look at any "P4P" list of fastest, strongest, highest jumping etc. animals, you'll find that they're dominated by insects, and the gap is ridiculous. That doesn't mean they're better at any thing, it just means that physics work differently for them.

    Mites for example, can have an equivalent speed (relative to normal sized human) of 1,300 mph. Are they better runners than cheetahs? No, they're just tiny and the physics for tiny things are way different, that's all.

    Mighty Mouse would get destroyed by a bigger guy that "looks" less skilful but is in actuality a much better fighter than he is, just like cats would get destroyed by tigers even though "P4P" their stats are way higher.

    In reality, Mighty Mouse is one of, if not the least skilled male champion in the UFC, for the simple fact that every other champion would most likely beat his ass in a fight.

    Of course he is. That's the age we're living in. Everybody is always the most (or least) of something, and there is no middle-ground ever. All hyperbole, all the time.

    Congrats, TS. This is an awesome thread.

    That's like saying a beetle is a beast for being able to lift 600 times its body weight.

    No it's not, it's just a beetle you can crush with ease. It can lift a lot relative to its tiny size, because physics at that scale is a lot different, that's all.

    If Mighty Mouse could he wouldn't be beating no names at 125 lbs, he'd be beating FW and LW champs and getting 10x more exposure and making way more money.

    His humility is one of the reasons he is so good and will only continue to get better. No ego at all and also very coachable. Hume and DJ will carve out a legacy, no doubt in my mind. If fans don't care to witness greatness, it's their loss.

    Yes he's a great fighter in his weight class, the best.

    That said, p4p is gay and Werdum > all.

    The main reason I disagree is because he has been fighting lesser competition than all other champs, and had to drop down a class after getting handled by Cruz

    physics is not any different in the beetles case, it just happens that the beetle body is developed differently than that of a human. If humans had stronger bone/muscle structures and exoskeletons and the like Obviously we would be alot stronger. But just because a creature is smaller does not mean that gravity/inertia etc are not working. They're just strong for their size.

    Plus that's a poor comparison because size/strength are not as important in fighting as skill/technique.
