when he was a journeyman at WW
EDZ, Ponzi, and Usman easily beat him
just shows how deep WW is
Or how terrible he performed cutting that much weight
He gets beat just as easily by the elite at MW as well, dude has a snappy Jab, and fast hands, but fights so...casually and passively sometimes I just don't see how he gets past the Top 5 at MW. He throws the same combination, but never really commits to any of his punches, and showed really POOR fight IQ tonight.
I don't mind the guy, but this wasn't the star studded performance it could have been, he had Uriah dead to right multiple times, but chose to go for Takedowns.
could be that aswell
whitakker was similar
bum at WW... beast at MW
The top MW’s will destroy him, he needs to go back down to WW if at all possible. He is pretty small for MW.
Size isn't the only thing he needs to worry about, his Fight IQ is pretty spotty, and with the margin for error being VERY small against guys like Whittaker, Costa, and Cannonier, I really don't like his chances at being a Top MW, let alone reaching Izzy.
Ah yes the 24-3 journeyman.
MW is shite tho
Washed up Pettis KOd top 5 WW and "best striker" Wonderboy stiff
Past prime RDA was top 5 for a while, took a round and nearly kimura'd Usman and arguably beat Colby
Journeyman LW Jorge got to top 5 and b2b title shots @ WW
Journeyman LW Burns got the last title shot and has beaten Woodley, Maia, Kunchenko and Wonderboy
Journeyman LW Chiesa is about to be top 5
LW, BW, FW >>>>>>>>>>>>>> WW
Honestly you know these are troll threads when you look at them but it seems like such a weird way to waste time.
They said during the fight he was 15-0 at MW before dropping to WW, then 3-0 since he moved back up. According to my math he's 19-0 as a Middleweight after tonight. So definitely not a journeyman like that dummy said. I think the weight cut was limiting him.
His style will be a problem for some of these top guys.
He lost to Ponzibibio and Umsan? What a shit welterweight! Surprised he wasn't cut after either of those two losses.
