    But but they were being aggressive and driving away potential new gym members. Should hold hands and talk about cous cous instead

    I was talking about him moving backwards with his chin up and hands down. What did you think I meant?

    Whoop dee doo - few fighters ALWAYS circle out and never ever play with linear movement and never experiment with different stances and styles.

    And one wonders why Luke is always injured

    I can't figure out why that would ever happen. (shakes head)

    he won't be a champion cus he can't box def or offensively, which highlights his shaky chin; which is exacerbated by his inability to recover when hit hard...

    he has enough grappling skill, but his striking isnt offensively balanced enough or defensively sound enough for him to be consistently effective..moving to lhw helps cus they are hella short on talent. But his lack of durability and awareness on the feet makes every fight a dangerous one

    He lets a lot of boxing go on as he tries to find an opening for those long kicks, definatly his downfall in some matchups

    It has been a problem since the beginning, even when people didn't really notice. Machida was piecing him up early in that fight for example.

    He actually still could be champ again if Gastelum beats Whittaker though. Gastelum has a chance vs Whittaker because the size difference isn't as bad as other MWs and Whittaker will keep it standing.

    But Rockhold mauls Gastelum. He's twice the size of him and will destroy him once he gets on top.

    i didn't think too much into that because he had zero space. he couldn't behave like he was in an empty octagon.

    He underestimates his opponents through his arrogance, he will eat shots to fire his own off. He’s like one of those people in a conversation just waiting for their turn to speak and not actually listen to what you have to say.

    He will get put to sleep time and time again because his defence is not a priority.
