Derrick Lewis was never that good .

Funny guy but not really Championship material.

Man I need to start following this sport again. I've missed the last year or so except for an event here and there.

How do you define a HW being good or not? He's big, he's strong, can punch and won the title against one of the best HW's ever. He deserves some respect.

I rate people based on skill level.

I think the modern heavyweights are less skilled and more explosive and physically fit. You see less and less of Fedor Nogueira types and more and more Lewis and Ngannou type.

I just don't see them having long careers if they don't expand on the tools we've covered above.

My original comment is more lamenting that this was Derrick Lewis' big chance and once again, he didn't really show much improvement

Upcoming blast from the past this week end:

Diaz vs Lawler II

It will be done at 185, hopefully they both put on a show. Actually if I’m hoping for something its Robby takes his soul.

Robbie will win surely? put some money on it.

Decent card, but it's all about that fight for me really.

Wonder if he will looks worse than Chuck. Judging by the ceremonial weight in, that?s who he should be fighting, Robbie will murk him.

Also war Alex V!!!!!

Not in debt but definitely not living like other MMA stars.

Probably can still make a humble living teaching BJJ.

Well his only method of victory against Ali would be a decision & there's no way he outpoints him. Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield would be bad matchups for him.

Tyson Fury is the man though, not only is he hilarious & a brilliant promoter, his openess
on talking about mental health is great.
