    thompson is still solid top 10 but he clealry is in a decline since his woodley fights. if luque conects one cleean left hoof, the fight is finished.

    Masvidal was way more conservative in his approach in 2017. Luque comes to throwdown and has the chin to pack one to give another.

    Real good fight, I respect WB as a striker but never really bought into him or his style I think Vicente has the style and athleticism to combat WB who's getting more exposed and broken down by the right kind of quick moving fighters. All Vicente needz to do is hit WB hard once (ala TWOOD) and he shrinks up shys away and becomes WB Ultra Point Fighting Man...

    I'm taking Luque, I think Thompson's best days are long behind him.

    Mmmmmm luque's got bricks for hands, crisp boxing and powerful leg kicks. He's got the weapons to hurt wb but, at the same time, his stance is too tight, he doesn't move much off the centerline and he eats a lot of punches. It's hard to deal with thompson's distance too, no one has really been able to beat him decisively at his game. Wonderboy ud is the most likely outcome, expect it to look like pettis, masvidal with stephen keeping a slow pace and blitzing here and there . Luque by tko has a great shot if luque decides to pressure and throws leg kicks.wouldn't be too surprising, but i don't trust him that much.

    Luque beat Perry in a split decision after changing his face if I remember right...



    Life & Death with Barberena [​IMG] ? If you mean Vinente almost taking Bryan's life and bringing him to near death with finishing knees and punches, yeah i guess it did go life & death.




    You wearing me out after 2 posts... <DisgustingHHH>

    pretty much this. My only thing is WB is aging, and his style, where reflexes are pretty much one of the main aspects could be one where once he starts losing, he goes down hill rather quick

    He most definitely is. I know it was only one bad loss, but for some reason I have a feeling Wonderboy's chin is hanging from a thread. I think Luque is primed to land a big shot and he's durable enough to wade through Wonderboy's offense to land some of his own. If he can deal with Wonderboy's running I think it'll be a much better performance from Luque than the Perry fight. Perry is much better in the pocket than giving credit for. Luque will have more room to breathe in this one.

    I think Wonderboy is getting severly underrated at this point.

    I would love for him to make a run again at WW. I think he has the style to beat the 2 blankets of the division.

    Wonderboy has become underrated.. in an alternate reality (another judge) he would have defended against usman..

    Yeah.. The two fights against Woodley and against Till (which I think he still won).

    But those guys had one advantage over Colby and Usman: Power. Marty and Colby are pillowfisted. I think Wonderboy MAYBE could dance around a little bit and outstrike them.


    PS: I'm letting out of the analysis the Pettis fight because while I don't like to talk about flukes... wtf was that? I would not bet on that happening again in a 100 years. Wonderboy was beating the crap out of showtime.

    Nice nice. I got Luque, I think Wonderboy will be winning and get cracked similar to Pettis KO.
    I like both guys and I'm glad Luque is getting this opportunity, he has been giving us great fights and seems like a good dude.

    That’s one way to look at it. The other is that he was fighting Tyron Woodley, and stood right in front of him for the better part of 50 minutes of (what I thought was) dead even fighting.

    His style forces him to be nearly perfect though, so I don’t think he can complain about not getting rushed back up the ladder at this point. Fun fights like the Pettis fight are about the best he can realistically hope for.
