    Forrest Whittaker has faced 1 man in the last 2 years. A guy in his 40s with stamina and weight cutting issues. And in one of those contests it’s greatly argued that he lost.

    In that same span, Israel Adesayna has fought 8 men

    Prior to Whittaker’s last two fights (in which he tried to imitate Kevin Lee’s stank leg to great success), other than an aging Jacare, he has beaten nobody but journeymen and gatekeepers. He even got TKOd by a guy who just got KOd clean by a featherweight on a losing streak.

    Can someone remind me of why Whittaker is so great again?

    Yup

    At least Cain was incredible in a martial art. When someone asks what Whittaker is good at, they kind of shrug and say “he has good boxing I guess”

    Why, because he KOd Derek Brunson who was fighting like an idiot that night (and who doesn’t KO Brunson, honestly?) and because he beat AARP Jacare who has been through 40 wars?

    Not saying Whittaker ain’t good, but he is inactive as shit and slightly overrated IMO until he proves otherwise

    plagued by injuries , its going to be interesting to see how he performs after a long layoff, I think it depends on if he has really stayed active in training and learning new skills like GSP did in his hiatus from competing. hope to see him back healthy this fight should be a good one
