    Seems to have really slowed down against top level fighters, doesn't look the same.

    He breaks under pressure, and this loss tonight really sealed the deal for Jake when it comes to a title shot at WW in my opinion. You got monsters in front of him ready to fight, and he seems to be absent on fight day.

    Since the Rory fight Jake is kind of on Dana's shit list.

    I'd like to see how this rolls out, 1 more loss and Jake is out.

    Thoughts ?

    much younger and less expensive than Fitch/Okami. He will need to lose at least two more fights in a row before getting cut.

    I don't think so. I'd drop his level of comp though. He needs to make some improvements to fight at the top if the Div

    he is more exciting against low level competition and has some highlight reel KO's

    No just cause he goes for a KO finish.

    Fitch, Okami and Shields rarely if ever go for a finish.

    He's never been the same after the Kampmann KO. He realized that he can be KO'd and thats made him hesitant to be the hard charging beast he once was
