The MMA Thread: DON'T ASK 4 STREAMS & NO GIFS- Whittaker v Brunson on SAT 11/26 @7PM on FS1 - Page 300
It's nice to at least finally see Frankie in there with an opponent who isn't going to succumb to the volume. The past two years Frankie's had Cub, Penn and Oliveria. All three of those guys were just too slow to keep up from the jump
Uriah might break down eventually but at least I feel like Frankie isn't just hitting a punching bag. Uriah is very mobile and not plodding
I'm happy as hell Frankie FINALLY called out Dana for his B.S.
"I want that title man, I know Dana's not here, AGAIN, I don't know if he's ducking me because he owes me a title shot.."
Whether it was tongue in cheek, Frankie is always too classy to campaign for a title shot. It's time now, Christ
It was a definitive victory for sure. Faber did not get embarrassed (like Cub did) but it was crystal clear that Frankie was the better fighter and is the true #1 contender
It was clear that Faber lost all 5 rounds but give Faber credit for putting up a better fight than Cub or Penn
They had better give Frankie the next title shot regardless of what happens between Aldo/McGregor. I almost wonder if a rematch would be counter productive money wise if McGregor wins. We have been on Aldo/McGregor overload for the past two or three months. It would be great for new blood and Frankie hopefully has been generating pull at least on the east coast

But hopefully there's no rematch issues with Aldo McGregor because Aldo beats the brakes off that dude . We'll have to see though.
Weidman is a more complete and refined version of Chael. Anderson is one of the GOATS but Weidman is of the new era
Don't think it would have made any kind of difference, Anderson wasn't going to get that title back
Not saying Weidman is unbeatable, just a really bad matchup for Anderson
