    One of the most under achievers in UFC (considering his potential)

    Rory McDonald was very close to be champion at least...

    But Thatch had so much potential, is HUGE for the division, great striking, finishing skills... but they guy just keep losing

    Sage Northcutt level of disappointment

    Thatch's grappling makes Rhonda's striking look good.

    didnt even looked at his record

    HE HAS 4 losses in his last 4 fights

    WHAT THE FUCK MAN !!!!

    I understand anyone can lose against Benson and Gunnar Nelson, they are beasts, but this guy was fighting them because everyone knows he could be the next big thing

    And what we got now? 4 loses streak

    What do you mean? He did well. He sped up the fight so we can watch the good fights.

    Oh Sherdog, ye bunch of impressionable :eek::eek::eek:s with your man crushes.

    First Erick Silva, then Thatch.

    Papy Abedi was supposed to go places too.

    No,
    because his striking looked absolutely devastating against lower comp. I understand the hype, I had high hopes for him too.

    Yeah his stand up game is good and good striking. Should be working on grappling though dude sucks on the ground against decent grapplers.

    the guy was
    11 - 1 (8 ko/tko, 3 submissions) exactly, 100% finishing rate, head kicks, knees, punches

    2 - 0 on UFC
     
  20. Only reason you Doofs thought Thatch was good because Media like Brendan Schaub said he was good in training. Now STFU
