These days (and for quite a while) I am constantly seeing untapped champions who just lack dimensions to there game that can be attributed to a lack of direction and attention by those who directly train, manage and oversee said fighters regimen. It's a shame because I can see a few of these people making championship runs or at least making top five in there appropriate division. Case A] Melvin Guillard - basket case..no one seems able to penetrate his unstable mentality in and out of the octagon. Clear case of excellent physical ability and conditioning but lack of mental training and killer instinct and experience that he should already have developed LONG ago. Trainers...advisors ...hell friends ? Case B] Rousimar Palhares - another borderline basket case .. possible lack of heart, drive, killer instinct and folds on receiving serious strikes. He has...no stand-up. I can understand relying on the one trick pony but come the fuck on. Look at this guys power and he still looks like he has never thrown a combo against a bag in his life. Trainers...advisors ...hell friends ? What the hell do they do with this guy while he is training for a fight because hell if i know that he shows up with his A game on fight night. Even if one dimensional, he mentality just looks always SHAKY. Case C] Phil Davis - great fighter but questionable training plans. He has the tools to be a great fighter..speed strength but in my opinion once he breaches top tier he seems to become a deer in the headlights of an oncoming truck. He becomes lethargic, afraid to pull the trigger and lack initiative to snap off stand up combos which could be lethal to anyone in the division if he learned to put steam and heart behind them. I don't think he's being led in the right direction or stepping up his game to where it should be. I blame his coaches. Case D] Rampage - Its a shame a man with his talent has wasted valuable time finding himself again, motivating himself, moving to acting. Even at his age it's apparent that if he was exposed to someone with proper leadership skills could have guided him to make better decisions. Someone who could have forced him to put his heart into training because Rampage was not someone I would have dumped into the "needs to retire" bin just yet. Power and aggression was his trademark...if only he could have adapted and continued to grow. Then again who the hell can tell him what he needs to do...no one. Case E] Pat Barry - wierd but nice guy... I question whether he really wants the belt. He seems to train to just get by and not excel and improve his game so he can make a serious run. Case F] Carwin - injuries, injuries I know. I always thought he he had an excellent toolset for his division and that he had a good window to grow some gather experience and stay up there. Anyways I'm bored...mostly curious as to everyone elses favorites who never seem to evolve/adapt and may be doomed for the axe.
