    The man looks like an absolute world beater.

    He very well could knock everyone's head off this year and cap it off by becoming the champ.

    He's my safest pick for new champ this year.

    Match-up with Cejudo is very very intriguing imo. Great fight.

    I got Cejudo though, but the striking of Yan is a problem for him.

    Yan got dropped hard by Dodson, so if Triple Clown (who's a lot better than Dodson) can tag him cleanly a few times he could knock him out

    Mmath never works bro. What are you , new ?

    Dodson is probably the quickest guy at BW. Nothing to do with Cejudo's style.

    Dodson is past his prime now

    Cejudo is pretty quick himself

    Dodson far past his prime but he’s still an awkward guy to strike with. He’s lost his speed which was his best attribute, but many good strikers have had a tough time figuring him out.

    i think he is a very good fighter. Just not sure HOW good exactly. A lot of people are hyping him up as the next champ, but BW is pretty fcking stacked rn. Its still hard to belive for me that he beats everybody out of: Henry, Marlon, Aldo, Frankie, Aljo, Cody, Munhoz, Sandhagen, Assuncao and Yadong.
    That being said he obv doesnt need to beat all of these to become champ. Just saying, if he achieves it, he might not be champ for too long.

    Henry will get demolished by yan.

    I wouldn't be saying this before the double champ thing and the shoulder surgeries.

    He's gotten to comfortable and we all know what happens when FIGHTERS get complacent

    Any chance cejudo wrestles yan and gives him a hard time or you think it’s a clean W for yan?

    Wont be clean. That's Henry's one ticket in the fight. But the striking pressure is something else from yan. I see rnd one being incredibly close and as the fight goes on yan takes over.

    Yeah, I agree with that. The crazy thing about Yan is the typically when we see explosive strikers they are most dangerous round 1-2 and sometimes round 3. I learned about Yan in his faber fight that even when being heavily pressured he has no problem conserving energy, and not gassing himself. It’s almost like he’s so confident in his striking once you’ve used some energy and he’s seen what you have that he just knows he’s gonna get the better of you in the later rounds. He definitely has that championship cardio

    Hey, he beats Henry then he very well deserves. That fight is not in the bag by no means. Henry is just playing the money market right now just like anybody private contractor should.

    I think a guy like Sterling could give him problems with his grappling.
