    Usman lost to Jose Caceras. So they both have a bad loss and I'm going out on a limb to say Usmans was worse.

    And you are using the same arguements everyone uses when Khabib fights. Wasnt Conor suppose to KO Khabib because Khabib has been hit a few times?

    The Warley Alves fight means little. Getting caught in a quick guillotine doesn't say a whole lot about anything, particularly considering how long ago it was.

    I also don't remember Kim coming close to winning a round - I'm pretty sure Colby dominated him.

    The RDA fight is telling though. Colby went to war with him, while Usman beat the shit out of him.

    Nice reach. Usman's loss was his second pro mma fight ever lol. I highly doubt he was anywhere close to resembling the fighter he is today.

    Colby lost in his 9th pro fight. And Colby got hit with big shots from RDA as well as being taken down himself, while usman dominated RDA all 25 minutes period.

    It does say something, that Colby was susceptible to being finished with a guillotine. lol

    Colby spent a good amount of the fight in kim's crotch with kim on top of him. It was a pretty uneventful fight outside of colby hitting kim with one shot

    And yes I agree with you on the last point

    paper beats rock, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper...

    styles make fights, and I don't see RDA as simply a lesser Usman.
