    Oh wow I wuv to member

    Back in 2013, Matt Brown was on a 6 fight win streak, and had just KOed Mike Pyle in 30 seconds and said this in his post fight speech

    "Mike Pyle is really good. He's better than GSP, I guarantee that" Brown said. "That's six in a row."

    Every time I see or hear Pyle's name I think of it.

    Matt Brown also said he was a better wrestler than GSP once.

    Now, it certainly seems ridiculous to say Pyle is better than GSP. However, Pyle is apparently MUCH better "in the gym" than he has performed in the cage. I've heard/read that he is very highly respected and rated from other fighters. For whatever that is worth.

    Stage fright is no joke. It might be what's preventing Pyle to be as dominant in the cage as in the gym. I have a friend, he's twice the guitar player I am. Yet, he can't perform well in front of an audience because of stage fright. So we record privately and he only plays very small venues.

    That's a shame for Pyle, you would think switching camps or a sports psychologist could help. I know its an extra costs to hire someone, but if it would improve his career, its worth it
