Stipe is inactive AF, He's 40, and has a glass chin. Its gonna be another replay of last night.
We can agree to disagree. Its not gonna be competitive.?
He's only been knocked out twice in 11 years. One he got caught with a legitimate KO shot that he didn't see coming, then fought 9 more HW championship rounds in his 2 rematch wins against Cormier, and then got KO'd by Ngannou, who is the scariest puncher in MMA history.
Bones is not a KO artist. He'd probably have to head kick Stipe (which would be sick) or he'd have to ground and pound him to a KO.
Stipe's base coming into the sport was wrestling. Look what he did against DC. It's not gonna be the same. Gane is a totally different fighter.
What in the actual ****? 1 quality win in what, 4 years? Not one guy currently in the WW top 10. How do you get to be a contender in perpetuity for doing nothing? It's not even like his fights are especially fun. **** off Dana. **** off Colby
Who would you give the shot to instead?
He might. That's the sport. Look at Bisping. It's not about his potential to win. It's about earning a title shot. Beat Belal or somebody. Anybody.
Why isn't it Chimaev?
I would say winner of Colby and Belal at the very least. Colby's gotta fight somebody else. Put some respect on the sport. It's pretty ridiculous. This isn't Connor getting bumped to the front of the line. This is a guy who is gate keeper who doesn't have KO power but he's got a big mouth. Cool
Also, just to compare Colby’s resume leading up to his title shot to Leon’s:
Colby’s notable wins: Bryan barbarena, demian Maia, rda, Robbie lawler
Leon’s: Bryan barbarena, Vicente luque, cowboy cerrone, rda, and Nate Diaz
Do you really find those resumes much different?
