Talented guy . But not top tier. His mouth made him a star more than his skill in the ring. Sure he had impressive wins. He is way more talented than I am. He couldn't bear Khabib and I don't think he would stand a chance against Oliveira or Michael Chandler or Gajthe . Imho

He speaks of the 155ers — Dustin, Khabib, Nate... as if they are the 45ers — Siver, Mendes, Brandao... "If they can take the shots..." Hey bro, get this — they can take the shots. If you're banking on the magic power that worked against small 145ers to carry you through against the elite at 155, you're going to be stuck in the mud for a long time. They absolutely can and will be able to take the shots. Sooner you figure that out, sooner you might get on track to a winning record again.

I feel like the writing was on the wall in this interview, said he wasnt as active last year, and he retired because the UFC essentially shelved him. He hints he has a bit of ring rust multiple times, and when fighting Dustin, everyone should've seen it coming

Kept taking shots at the end out of pure Will and Heart to survive. Much respect to both Champions. Nothing changed or changes. Loved these guys b4, love them now.
