anthony smith finishes rashad and shogun with ease, calls out gustafsson for the ufc 227 spot since oezdemir got injured.

gus: "uh..um..I have a minor injury so im off ufc 227... sorry!!!"

Nothing impressive in finishing Shogun, or Reshad these days.

Also awful event, skipped trough all of it in less then 10 minutes.

The LHW division being absolute trash is all on the UFC, if they kept ryan bader and phil davis (IMO 3rd and 4th best LHWs in the world) they would at least have legit challengers for the belt, or if they kept mousasi, they would have someone who can fight at LHW.

now you have gus (who is a very good fighter) but he hardly ever fights, and the rest are just good or average fighters.

IMO DC should just vacate, no one cares about this division, let gus fight yoel for the vacated belt and the winner can fight jon jones whenever hes back.

because he has 2 fight in 3 years? + that nobody has won 5 in his last 6.

while this guy had 6 fights in 1.5 years, gus had a grand total of 1 fight


and a sudden minor injury after being called out is hilarious.

Giving Smith an interim shot for beating way past it fighters is a bit of a joke tbh. There are much more deserving guys like Blachowicz, Roundtree or OSP for example.

The shitty thing with Gus which compounds problems is that he won't fight Latifi and Manuwa.

I don't think Gus is ducking Smith - no doubt in my mind Alex obliterates that guy. Gus had no issue agreeing to fight Volkan - a much more dangerous guy than Smith.

Also disagree about the event being bad. Main event was meh except for Haqparast dominating Diakese, that was fun. Prelims were entertaining except for that lay and pray fest with Meek and Fabinski, that was dogshit.

who said he's getting an interim shot? he was going to fill in for a spot against gus, also would have been his 3rd fight in 2 months.

but hey that 1 fight against a past it glover in 2.5 years should be enough to give king gus a title shot.




sums it up

In his defense, he probably feels he is really close and does not want to risk his position fighting dangerous lower ranked fighters.

Fighting Gus is basically a shot at the interim title.

And DC is one to talk after calling out Shogun for his next LHW fight instead of fighting Gus, Latifi or Glover who all called him out for a fight recently.

Yeah, I'd like Gus to be more active but lets give him a worthwhile opponent. And while Gus was indeed inactive, he is the best LHW fighter right now considering Bones suspension and DC fighting at HW and impending retirement. Also while Glover is past his best times, he's definitely still a more worthwhile opponent than Shogun or Rashad.

DC is one to talk because he has 2 belts and is an active figher.

not someone who's 2-2 in his last 4 and calls out DC for the hw belt while ducking jan, khalil and now smith.

Absolutely irrelevant when the fact of the matter is that DC wanted to fight Shogun for his next title defense which is hilarious. That after agreeing to fight Lesnar at HW instead of facing a legit challenger because of moneyfight reasoning.

I like both of DC and Gus because they're great fighters and that's all that matters to me. But it's funny to hear DC call out Gus on picking and choosing when he is doing the same right now.

DC is an active champion of 2 divisions = relevant

DC said if shogun wins his next fight, he could be a potential opponent, that's not picking and choosing because gus deserves fuck all. There's no clear challenger in the weight class, glover just got his ass handed to him by corey anderson.

would be absolutely hilarious if DC vacates and oezdemir ko's gus

Him having 2 titles doesn't make him any less of a cherry picker right now. Yeah DC is great, he is the legitimate HW title holder and he holds the best LHW fighter outside of Jones belt but that doesn't mean that he isn't cherry picking right now.

His high horse approach towards Gus, just doesn't have the same effect for me in this current situation. Would've held much more weight a few months ago. Besides, it really doesn't make sense to call out Gus for refusing to fight Smith when Gus wants to fight better fighters.

I would love for the Volkan vs Gus fight to happen - that's a great fight with two fighters at the top of the division. Not Gus vs some middleweight that KO'd a few grandpas. Why bother with Smith? He wins and people will say "ah yeah of course Gus smacks around that nobody".

no if he fights smith people would say "omg gus is actually fighting again? i thought he was retired!!"

corey anderson can ask for a shot too, he's been more active and is on the same winning streak gus is on while beating the same level of guys.

if gus fights one of oezdmir/rockhold/yoel and wins, he has every right to call for a title shot, but as of this moment he can't be ducking 3 fighters while calling for a HW title shot when DC has a broken hand.

Has Gus turned down Volkan or Rockhold? Nope, DC was even on his nuts when he called out Rockhold because it wasn't the right time

You may not like Gus for whatever reason, but the guy has fought the best of the best and gave the best LHW ever in Jones a crazy close fight - he's not afraid of competition and he didn't turn down fighters that were actually on his level.

gus is the fourth best fighter in lhw ever possibly. roid jones and hw dc are equal. lhw dc is slightly below roid jones because dc doesnt juice. dont let his physique fool you but he is natural as far as his mma career is concerned. barnatt and rothwell have popped. just saying and I love DC. Below these two aka jones and dc, we have rumble and then probably gus. I still think prime machida, prime shogun and prime rampage can beat gus. it's a 50 50 fight especially rampage has a good chance of beating gus. Gus simply struggles against any athletic black fighter with power. machida can outclass him over a 5 round fight and Evan's being the weakest of the three still has a decent chance because he was powerful and fast at his peak. Evan's beat a weaker version of rampage hence I put rampage above Evans in terms of legendary status.

as for gus. he isnt afraid of anyone in this division except probably dc and definitely rumble if he ever comes back.


bellator has some good fighters. honestly I am not too sure If gus beats Bader?? iirc gus also lost to davis. davis could beat hin again.

bader vs gus. who wins that?
