    Wow. Shows what a monster he was in his prime.

    Imagine Prime TJ?

    He had 2 of the most dominant performances in MMA history ending Baraos prime and historic reign, battering Assuncao who beat Caraway, Munhoz, Aljo, Marlon and Font in the time frame, 30-26d Lineker who beat down Mayday, Dodson, Font, Chito and arguably beat Sandhagen. That was the only time Lineker got flat dominated in his prime. Then he stiffened undefeated CoGar b2b

    Prime TJ runs through everyone in a stacked BW division except MAYBE Petr Yan. He would EASILY be P4P the best fighter in the world now too.

    Also when was his prime? Between getting knocked out to Dodson and Triple C and USADA? Or sometime before ?

    Can't pretend that Cory didn't cause all of those injuries though. TJ is tough as shit for walking him down with that knee

    He had the MCL strain in training camp. He couldnt even spar for this last camp.

    The cut was also opened up in sparring.

    Cory did cause the LCL tear.

    Dom is his daddy

    A guy a weight class below him dropped him while he was PEDdling.

    If that's the way things are, I take a prime ViTRTor Belfort anyday.

    And just like that, TJ has become hilariously overrated. Guy got his ass beat by Sandhagen and survived to a close decision.

    Why? You imply he had a size advantage over CCC, but if CCC was a manlet, Dillashaw looked like a concentration camp victim in that fight. And even though CCC was by far the better fighter, he doesn't count because he's retired.

    “Beat.”

    I wasn’t mad at the decision, but the way it looked Sandhagen wins 7/10 times.

    Looks like Yan is gonna rule the division for a while. His stupid mistake aside, he looks like the best fighter.

    Mid 30s in a smaller weight class is never a good thing. Speed kills

    Sandhagen turned his face into hamburger meat.

    I dont like that decision honestly.

    Being the aggressor won him the fight, while Cory landed all the damage and even dropped him.
