He got waaay better at fighting once he was in the UFC. WEC Chad sucked. UFC Chad is actually pretty drat good.

It was the Aldo loss. He started training his striking a lot more seriously after that, passing the vaunted standard of Team Alpha Male striking, 'not good, but so fast and strong it doesn't matter' He really did turn it around, and that second fight with Aldo is one of the all time great UFC title fights.

Poirier got dropped by Jim Miller's low-kicks and has never displayed a consistent ability to move his head on the offence. He's probably getting hosed up real bad.

neither guy has any concept of defense at all which is why the matchup is perfect

Is tonight the greatest moment in Dominick Cruz's life?

No.

The greatest moment in my life was realizing that I didn't need a belt to be happy.

impossible

he's just way past his prime now.

Matt Brown on the other hand is still a pretty dangerous fighter and hasn't completely lost a step yet. It's going to have the same ending as the Diego Sanchez fight, except sadder.

If this fight had happened 5 years ago when it was supposed to Condit would have done some incredible poo poo.

Matt Brown hasnít declined as much but he was never as good, so this is probably a fair match

Condit's done and Joanna's opened as a favourite against Rose for the rematch. Probably a good chance of making a little money there.

i'm not convinced that poirier won't turn a corner and become genuinely elite. gaethje i don't feel the same way about. this is basically the brown / condit that is actually not sad and weird.

also lol at jj being the favorite.

I don't think Poirier posseses the skills, or toughness, necessary to follow the blueprint Eddie laid out without getting broken down before Gaethje does, but if he can, it'll be cool to see.

JJ's going to get knocked out again.

JJ is the best fight for Rose definitely, I think Rose would have nightmare against Andrade or Gadelha.

its even dumber than this. her dumb boyfriend tweeted that she told the UFC that she is willing to fight Nunes on July 7 and is waiting on a response from the UFC and Nunes/her camp about it

also Elbe decided to start some poo poo with Megan Anderson too and accuse her of fighting under a tourist visa

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.


Poirier is always one glancing counterpunch away from losing and I don't understand any confidence picking him against Gaethje.
