    Will had Mike's number. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't perform under the bright lights and underwhelmed.

    Chandler just could not figure him out for whatever reason. Still a way better fighter than Brooks

    Chandler arguably won the 1st fight. It was a draw at best. Michael clearly won rds 1, 2 and 5. Brooks had 3 and 4 and 3 mightve been 10-8 so a draw or if 10-9 a 48-47 win for Chandler. The decision was bad.

    Brooks is the better fighter head to head but he shit the bed when he got to the UFC. Still weird to me how hard he fell off.

    It goes without saying I think Mike is the better fighter but I posted this and someone brought up a point that I was thinking about. Why don't some American wrestlers go for sweeps? Gregor was the same way last night. He could have swept cdf a couple of times but he elected to go for the more energy, explosive driven takedowns.

    I agree with you on both fronts. It's probably some mixture of stubbornness and autopilot.

    Hes the biggest bust ever IMO. Most other fighters ppl call busts already had a ton of wear and tear, injuries and fights in the game when they got into UFC. And were already well into their 30s.

    Brooks was 17-1, only fought pro for 5 years, no injury history and just turned 30yo. He was the definition of a bust.

    This is a potential avenue for Charles.

    Well that's the only way I can see him beating chandler, but Charles has bad striking defense and isn't a great wrestler.

    Brooks is bigger and stronger and more athletic than Charles.

    Maybe more than anyone remaining at UFC lightweight.

    There is no big strong physical guys there anymore, aside from Chandler.

    Meanwhile Welterweight has the Usman Beast.

    I thought the first fight was a toss up and the second fight, it looks like Chandler wasn't the same Chandler after watching a few of his last fights. I think dude was extremely gassed which led to poor fighting IQ decisions in the cage. I think if they fight today, Chandler probably beats him

    Kevin Lee. Dober. Islam.

    Those are all physical guys.

    Too bad dover can't grapple though. He looks big for a lightweight

    Good choices,

    they're all a bit inconsistent or inactive though.
