    I think the Maia loss took a lot out of Gunnar mentally. On his day he looked like a champ.. hope he comes back stronger

    He was declared future champ at some point. Then his chin got exposed.

    Looked amazing against a guy we were all high on but frankly has proven not to have it. You aren't fighting their potential. You're fighting them. Gunnar smashed him because he cannot compete at a high level simple as that.

    That's a nice, little classic karate combo. Hope Gunnar comes back stronger than ever.

    Gunnar fights chin up, hands down and gets hit over and over clean to the jaw until he's KO'd. Not once in the process does he bring his hands up or tuck his chin. Frustrating to watch.

    "SBG conned me"

    What’s that all about? Is there a story or is this just a joke made by a 6’4’’ ripped, shredded, thick, solid, tight Suredawger who only bangs 11s, usually two at the same time, or ?

    Thatch was supposed to be a killer.

    Everyone was clamoring over him, the next big thing turned out to be the next biggest bust.

    He was a huge WW.

    Gunnar is one of my favourite fighters and so fun to watch, but I never thought he'd be champion because of his poor striking defense.

    His Karate stance is unorthodox but very flawed; bouncing around while keeping your chin up and hands down is never a good idea, it's not even a Wonderboy Karate stance where he stands sideways and tucks his chin.

    Remember?
    We haven't forgotten!

    We knew he used to be Conor McGregor's main training partner up until Artem replaced him.

    Dunno what this guy is talking about. Gunnar is a small ww and his loss to ponz you cant blame on his defence when ponz raked his eyes several times. He hasnt fought since and is only 29. If they ever made a 165lb division hed have a good shot at being champ
