    That was the most effective use of the left hand I've seen across dozens of Faber's fights.

    For a long time I've wanted to see him develop better use of his left hand. Tonight he landed some good left hooks and jabs.

    And he brought back his vintage clinch/grapple/GnP.

    Yeah Faber's striking looks good tonight. He seems to have a ptsd from leg kicks though. Everytime it triggers him.

    I know, he looked great in there. I wish he wasn't retiring. He looked better than he has in years!

    All Brad has done lately is look good for moments in a fight before getting destroyed. He's like the new Guy Metzger

    Faber's always been heavy on that lead leg. Makes taking leg kicks worse.

    Stann was right about the calf strikes, you're not used to getting hit there. Same with inside leg kicks (Barboza vs Pettis).

    Better to retire while he's still healthy.
