      I love how there's no cries of "weight bully" for Alexander, yet he was weighing 214 pounds, and he's fighting at 145 ffs.

          Imagine Max vs Tony? Another example of the “mirror matchup” like Alex vs Mendes

              Volkanaski is good but i think hes way too small for Holloway, and hes just gonna get big brothered in there

                Hes a grown man and can make his own decisions but i was so surprised that mendes retired after this fight. He put up a very competitive fight against a guy who could very well be a future champion. Mendes is no doubt still worthy of being in the top 5, and honestly one of the very few respectable guys in the ufc. He didnt fight his suspension at all, he just took it because as he said he made a mistake, even if it was an accident it was still his fault. Great competitor, and before khabib beat McGregor he had one of the best performances against him. Despite being much smaller. He never took the easy route, which would have been fighting smaller guys at 135 or even 125. Just a straight up, legit competitor and a real respectable guy. The UFC could really use more guys like him.

                        If volk ge that takedown defense right he MIGHT be able to stand a chance. Hes a slightly better chad mendes, which is saying a lot here but no match for the champ.

                                      Alex showed a lot of heart and grit in this one I loved how he was just going all out for the finish towards the end of the second where just guys start to fade. Impressive! Imagine few years back beating Mendez and Aldo back to back woulda had u 1 p4p like Connor.
