    TJ is 16-3 @ BW and ppl are writing him off because of an Auschwitz cut to 125 where he was horribly weight drained and never should've been

    He's beaten

    Barao x2
    Cody x2
    Assuncao
    Lineker
    Soto
    Easton

    Barao was top 3 P4P back then with Aldo and Bones and on his way to being BW GOAT. For odds it was one of the biggest upsets ever. Cody was 6th ranked P4P and put on one of the gureatest title winning performances to had Cruz his first BW loss and Cody himself was undefeated

    Assuncao has long been one of the best fighters to not win a title and TJ shut him out. Also dominated Lineker who was on a gureat run and shut him out while having a 10-8. TJ also has a rare case for a 10-7 round in his career against Watson

    In his only losses @ BW was the Dodson TUF TKO which was a bit early and was pre purime/Bang. Then 2 split decisions to Assuncao and Cruz. Many thought he beat Haphael and the Cruz fight could've gone either way

    Yan will run through Aljo. TJ will come back beat a contender or go sturaight to a shot.

    Yan will be in a very similar situation to Cody and Barao before TJ ran through them. BW champ, beat everyone they fought and TJ will be an underdog again like he was for those fights.

    When he becomes 3x BW champ with that resume ending those champion P4P runs he will easily be BW GOAT. Dom was gureat but injuries and inactivity left a lot on the table and their fight could easily be argued for TJ anyways

    No doubt TJ is one of the most skilled BW ever. But he's gonna be off EPO now and has had a lay off. Impossible to say how he will look

    I believe. He's a workhorse and as competitive as any fighter I've seen. He got nagging injuries out of the way too. I think there's a chance he looks better than ever

    It’s ridiculous that it’s been almost two years since his last fight already

    I think TJ either pops again or comes back a shell of his former self.

    cruz has a better resume, so does henry.

    i dont think he gets the title back unless he comes back in a return to form. at 35 and most likely being on less juice than before, i dont see it happening. if hes at his peak i could see him beating yan tho

    Cejudo is 2-0 @ BW in UFC, 7-0 overall he's only beaten Cruz and Moraes @ BW. He's nowhere sniffing discussion for BW GOAT

    He needs to avenge the absolute demolition that Cejudo put on him.

    PS: Barao is perhaps the most overrated fighter in MMA history, It's insane that he was ever proclaimed the #1 PFP fighter in the world.

    He's not being written off from the lose at 125, he's being written off because he's a juicer, he was accused by a former teammate Garbrandt of being on EPO and helping other people at TAM to juice well before he even got caught taking exactly EPO out of all drugs, it's clear as day he's been cheating for a long time.

    Ppl are still putting roided Bones in P4P and GOAT talks.

    Canelo and Fury both popped for roids and they're 2 of the most popular fighters with Canelo #1 P4P

    TJ will be fine if he wins the title again. There will be the doping but others have it as well like Bones, Anderson etc

    doesnt matter where the fight was, henry knocked him out in 20 seconds. embarrassing loss just like aldo's loss to conor

    tj aint getting the strap unless he comes back in top form. its possible to beat yan, because aldo whos ancient was hanging in with yan for 2-3 rounds before tiring. tj can certainly has a path to victory.

    if he shows up old and slow, then its a wrap. he'll retire after he takes a loss or two just like chad did
