    He seemed bigger/stronger. Didn't like seeing Max at that weight.

    Of course, coupled with the fact that Holloway can’t bust a grape at LW.

    Size usually is in the post-TMA romance era

    No. The beating took his power away so he lost his pop.

    Size disadvantage? I thought Max was moving up to 170,185, & even 205- because he's the best pound-for-pound in the world.

    Lol stop that.

    I’m sure the guy who needs 300+ punches to put away Manlets at FW hits like a Ford Escort at LW.

    Show some respect to manlets.
    One more thing, Poirer landed 200+ shots at LW and couldn't finish, so you kind of shot your own argument.

    Nope, Poirier being a better fighter was a major advantage. Size was a minor one. Max doesn't and hasn't had good boxing that was his major disadvantage in the fight.

    I’d like to see Max move to heavyweight & see Ngannou test that chin. But in all seriousness, Max needs to improve his boxing defense badly, eating shots isn’t a good strategy even if it works at featherweight (they call it featherweight for a reason, dude’s aren’t hitting that hard down there). I hope Max can shake this bullshit about pound-for-pound, so he can start to actually evolve his game, eventually he’s going to be forced to fight a LW.

    They were all circle-jerking over how wide his back is...

    145
    That weight cut has proven to be a great divider
    Conor at 145 is a problem for anyone
    He smoked both of these guys
    Poirer already said 145, never again
    I think Poirer vs McGregor at 155 would be fantastic
    Max needs to go back to 145
