    Edwards, Usman, Chiesa, Colby isnt 6 feet but he’s bigger than RDA

    he shouldn’t have gone to WW. Anyone would have got thrown around by those big guys.

    Conor was offered a shot at Usman and was radio silent.

    RDA lost to Chiesa? I'm surprised, even with the size difference.

    You look at this record and he's fought a very high level of competition that's for sure.

    It kinda made sense at the time (2017) when Tyrone was WW champ and guys like washed Maia and Till were getting TSs. RDA actually won his first 3 at WW and got an interim TS vs Covington

    Conor wanted nothing to do with Usman.

    Dude is a savage and people who e downplayed him are not savages. To be fair tho, he avoided all the touch butt stuff even tho I think he’s rightfully the start of it.

    Colby wasn't crazy bigger but he put a insane pace that is pretty much impossible to match. RDA still did well there.

    He lost to Eddie and Tony. It's not like that's gatekeeper status.

    Yeah, if he was a little earlier, he could maybe have been champ. He had a shot at the interim belt. Good fight too with some close rounds.

    No not a gatekeeper but that’s why he moved up he knew he wasn’t get a title shot for awhile. He had to go to the back of the line.

    RDA vs Tony rematch should be interesting.

    I dont doubt it. Even a single foot-monster is a handful. 6 would be formidable

    One of the fights that I feel like RDA could have actually won with a better gameplan, but I'm coming to the realization that RDA just can't help but back up to the fence when pressured.

    Conor had him beat before he even got to the cage.
