    Was just thinking about this. Seems to happen so very often.. Fighter A can beat Fighter B can beat Fighter C but C can also beat A etc...

    What are some good examples of this? And why it helps make MMAmath not work.

    Aldo-McGregor-Diaz could -sort of- fit currently. Being that McGregor KTFO Aldo (fluke or not different topic) but McGregor loses spectacularily to Diaz, a long time lightweight - while Aldo defeats Edgar, one of the LW GOATs soundly twice. As usual, the MMAmath just don't add up.

    Therefore, if mmamath works (which many delusional mma fans insist) Holly is a much better fighter than Holly.

    After the era of GSP, Silva, Aldo, now Jones too - the divisions are going fucking amuck. We got a few to hold shit down, but really, we are in a frantic state of having nobody to replace the GOATs. I think this transitional era in the UFC whill last for at least a few more years.

    Wonderboy MIGHT have what it takes to somewhat repair WW.
