    Seeing the story on the front page made me remember him again. I remember he was a hot prospect with just one lost years ago. He was young, explosive, and was good with the mic. There was a point where his CW contract was up and there was talk that the UFC wanted him to sign with them but he decided against it. I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure he lost his next fight after signing his contract. I realize he's still young but he was making headlines not he's faded away.

    So he lost money because he did not choose Conor's path, eh?

    He didn't want to play no second fiddle to Darren Till.

    Actually the opposite, he wanted to get the star treatment and a huge push.

    He's a better prospect if you don't watch his fights.
    If you do watch his fights, he's not very good.

    Yeah, that was absolutely ridiculous. Dude thinks he's going to get to main event a UFC card coming straight from Cage Rage?

    Even Conor didn't get to do that.

    Basically this. He's a punching bag with a decent submission game.

    Imo Mason Jones is the best current CW prospect now Herbert has signed for the UFC. Hopefully they fight for the vacant title after their current fights and Jones beats him up.

    Idr which one it was but I remember watching him getting dominated then pulled off the sub. Kinda showed the hype wasn't real.

    Yea he has been exposed by now. I don't think he is UFC worthy.

    He didn't want to sign unless he was the main event in his first fight.

    That's idiotic.
    Conor wasn't even on the main card of his debut, and everyone talked only about him afterwards

    He's good on the ground no doubt but his stand up is terrible and so is his wrestling.
    Didn't he keep missing weight too?

    He still has a chance I guess, I forgot how young he was. He's still only 25 but if he'd signed with the UFC when there was talk about it, he'd have been destroyed and cut.

    Yeah, it's usually only established names like Mousasi, Gomi, Overeem, Rockhold, Gaethje etc that get to headline their first UFC card, aside from the odd really late injury replacement situation like Soto and Latifi.

    Obviously Paddy does not belong in that list of names.

    Hey, at the time he'd just come off a big decision win against Juicy J Julian Erosa, if that doesn't get you a main event then I don't know what does.

    He also doesn't belong to the list of names that can manage their own careers, seems so...
