    Edson Barboza is a "boring bum"?

    Hooker is legit, and Barboza deserved a rebound fight after the calendar year he had.

    You don't need to tear a guy down to build another up. Edson is a JBG fav for a reason. That being said, Dan is an unexpected gem for me. This video made me tear up a little, you could really feel Hooker's passion come through when you hear him talking about holding the belt:



    I hope he can do it, War Hooker!

    Your right, Barboza is a nice guy. I apologize. He's a little boring but who cares hes done a lot for the sport.

    I have never heard someone describe Barboza as boring,how could someone?I'm going to assume you've seen about 1 of his fights and it was where he got laid on and beaten up by either Lee or Khabib.Noobs these days lol.

    Never understood why mma fans care so much about personality or how a female fighter looks,you literally can't have a normal conversation about a female fighter on Sherdog or if someone's a "manlet".It all seems so silly to me.It's like the wwe these days.

    Eh I am not sold on Hooker. He had problems with Yair and even got taken down by him.

    You mean at 145?

    When he was cutting from his natural ~190lbs, depleting himself so much he felt like he was wading through treacle every time he entered the Octagon? Remember how Robert Whittaker was an ordinary fighter at WW before throwing off the weight cutting shackles, moving up to MW and becoming the WORLD EFFING CHAMPION?!?

    In other words, WAR HANGMAN!!!

    At FW Hooker looked like a pretty regular, fringe top 15 fighter. At LW he looks completely different - better fight IQ, better reflexes, more power.

    I hope he loses.

    We can't have a serious sport where New Zealanders succeed.

    Him and The Diamond got so much benefits of going a class up. Or 145 are better? :)
