Platinum is fan worthy because he's basically a short notice fighter.

    He's a dumbass with an entertaining style. He'll stick around for awhile for those reasons.

    He'll never be a great WW, though. I say gatekeeper at best.

    also, people should lay off michael perry, dude served the Platinum Nation like a true soldier before losing his Platinum belt to Platty-Jo

    I'll never get used to people saying things like this about guys with 10 fights. He's so young, how can you put a cap on someone's potential like that?

    I rarely do, he just hasn't shown me anything to think otherwise. Maybe he'll make a turn around, we'll see.

    That's something Conor, Royce Gracie and GSP couldn't do....combined. Platinum is the GOAT at such a young age!

    He can't change his training or go to a major camp? He's already a noteworthy fighter training out of a UFC branded gym.

    Sure he can.... but he better do it soon. The way he lifts you'd think he's been training with Cain.

    That's the whole idea behind not making statements like that. He could turn around. The guy has three fights at the UFC level and is only 25.

    Right, but that's dealing in hypotheticals. He hasn't shown me anything to make me think he'd be a champ. As is, I have no reason to believe he ever will be one.
