    The dude tortured his body to make 125 and it cost him. He is a great fighter,no need to hate on him for leaving alpha male and switching camps which enabled him to become a champ.

    Cutting 30 pounds to go down to a class the UFC was getting rid of.

    Was a brilliant move TJ..

    Why would I respect a guy who tortures himself to fight guys smaller than him?

    I'd respect him if he went up.

    Fuck him

    He talked a bunch of shit and picked on smaller fighters for no reason. Even talking about shutting down a division and putting his supposed friend Joe B out of work. He was a salty little bitch when he lost too.

    Nobody asked his ass to move down. I don't respect it at all

    Sea Snakes: An Unusual Salt Gland under the Tongue.

    The posterior sublingual gland of sea snakes is a salt gland. It secretes a fluid surpassing seawater in sodium chloride concentration. The gland lies on the ventrolateral surfaces of the tongue sheath and empties through multiple ducts into the sheath.
    Fluid is expelled from the sheath when the tongue is extended. For freshly captured Pelamis, the plasma concentrations of sodium, chloride, and potassium were 210, 167, and 8 millimoles per liter, respectively. Injections of sodium chloride led to a rise in its concentration in the plasma and to an increase in the rate and concentration of fluid secreted by the sublingual gland. The ultrastructure of this gland is similar to that of other reptilian salt glands. However, the gland is not homologous with any other salt gland. The sublingual gland in Pelamis is larger than that in Laticauda, and the rate of electrolyte excretion from the larger gland is greater.

    I originally agreed with the TS starters post but your post has changed my mind.

    I see your point but that big of a cut doesnt always guarantee you'll bully the smaller man,he got bullied.

    Was just hoping for a better fight. Look like the initial knock down was just a trip or shove, no strike. But, then Cejudo may have clipped him behind the ear. Cejudo kept the pressure and never allowed him to recover. Stoppage was legit IMO, could've allowed it to go a bit longer given the circumstances, but I don't think it would've changed the outcome.
