Firstly I do appreciate his aggressive fight style but honestly his toolset is very outdated. He has power you need to respect but there are so many holes in his game that you need to wonder how far he can go in the division without drastic changes. His footwork is plodding, off balance and I don't understand why no one has corrected how prone he is to counters simply due to being constantly flatfooted. Also glaringly evident is how the hell can you possibly close on your opponent with your hands hanging down around your waist ? Are these yes man around him former trainers of Brock Lesnar ? Basic fundamentals of mma dictate, keep your your hands up so you don't constantly get kicked, jabbed and countered in the mouth. Mentally the man seems also suspect, almost to what we saw in Palhares once his gameplan failed he shuts down and starts to crumble. It seems like Mike just shut down halfway through the second and refused to adjust his gameplan when he saw charging was clearly not working. Maybe he was already gassed due to the muscle the man walks around with but it seemed he just gave up early in the fight. Mike was lucky he wasn't facing a ground specialist because with that flat footed habit of his he seems very vulnerable to take downs and having his legs chopped down in short order. Anyways, the guy is a great slugger but super one dimensional and honestly I don't think he's anywhere near championship material.
