This is a tricky one for Sandy, no doubt. I really hope he can overcome the challenge, though. He went in for the top challenges way too early, I think he would have stormed the belt if he had taken more time - but I reckon was under pressure from UFC side and the money on the table...
... He's still got lots of career ahead imo. Always look forward to watching him fight!
Agreed. A slower pace and more experience would have benefited him over time, I think @ogaddmma is a big fan.
I like him, he's tough as hell. He's been in some absolute wars already.
Just started a real career runthrough today and it's reaffirmed my love for him. He's so much fun to watch, has the heart of a warrior and he's got a very high ceiling imo. Gonna have to see which types of fighters manage to give him trouble and where he tends to fade as I'm only early on where he's finding constant success at the moment
Agreed, do you think the casuals know much about him? He was affiliated with Rousey once wasn’t he?

I've never heard anything about Rousey although I know he trained with Dillashaw a lot. Beautiful lead hand and bodywork with that similarly TJ/Cruz footwork and movement styles. Can't wait to write about him whether or not he manages to get the win tomorrow night or not. Definitely worked his way into my favourites over the past couple of days
Look at the live odds above 😵💫
Gotta love Dan Hardy... relentless with his content, usually always out first.
