    Rogaine was hyping up these young fighters like Myles Jury and Rory McDonald because they traned UFC from a young age instead of TMA. What other 'new breed' fighters have fallen short to the old guard?

    Rory is still very young and already in top 4 of his weight class, and already had a title shot.

    Stop taking everything that Rogan says to heart.

    Johnny Case and Brian Ortega are the future of the lighter division!

    what do you mean what happened to them? They are still fighting. Id imagine that most of the future will be "the new breed" type of fighter that trains MMA from the start.

    the 'new breed' will be the next champions ... the old breed is still tough and talented.

    They're 31 and 33 years old, definitely not the "new breed".

    Jones was a wrestler, and traned UFC for a few years so no.

    McGregor was a boxer turned MMA fighter.

    Even if they are the new breed and have the skills some of them lack toughness.

    It's all good and great until you get punched real hard without your gym protective gear.

    And vetreans are already well rounded after all these years so it's not like they are still one trick pony.

    "New Breed" means any fighters who trained all facets of MMA from the start whereas guys like Jones and McGregor only trained one discipline from an early age then picked up other skills later on. What do you not understand?

    You're a waste of time dude. Jones is "new breed" or whatever the fuck you want to call it.
