    Lawler, Ellenberger twice, and now Brown. I like watching him fight but that is pretty crazy, ~a year and a half is the time frame for those fights too. I don't remember him pulling out of a fight back in Strikeforce. Is it just bad luck? Does anyone here follow his training leading up to fights or know anything about it?

    Yea it's pretty ridiculous. It took him like a year just to make his debut

    He is taking advantage of the benefits provided by the UFC.

    Must not have any kids if his pulling out skills are that good.

    The UFC probably shouldn't have him main event any cards in the future. too much of a liability.

    I don't like watching him fight, either. He batters his opponent's legs, but doesn't finish.

    I think it's effecting his performances. It really looked like he lacked
    the confidence you need at an elite level when he went in to fight Rory.
    A confidence that I think, you only attain when you're consistently fighting
    at a high level. Win or lose.

    He is a talented guy, but has no killer instict, people like that dont usually go anywhere. Lots of people convert to be like him, but only once they are at the top.

    He ducked Riggs big time a few years ago in strikeforce.

    Yeah they should probably not main event him anymore. I'd say match him up with a lower top 15 guy next, no reason to really give him a big fight.
