Crazy that for such an undersized Middleweight how well Gastelum has done at the Weightclass. I know Belfort isn't nowhere near what he used to be but still far from an easy win. I do think that the end is near for him though.

Edit 2: At this point, I don't see Johnson losing to anyone unless he gets caught with "fluke" knockout shot. Something similar to when Weidman beat Silva in their first meeting, only DJ doesn't taunt and dance like Silva.

Really good night of fights from the prelims to the main card. Shame it had to come at the expense of Jacare but Whittaker is for real and at only 26 could very well be the future of the division.
I'm with you on DJ, he is just so damn good. He literally doesn't have a weakness and the fact that he purposely keeps beating people at their own game is all the more impressive. He turned Reis into a punching bag tonight and ended up submitting a black belt whom had never been submitted. Shame in general the Flyweights haven't equaled buyrates because DJ is the best all around MMA fight in the sport. I can't think of anybody who has ever been so strong in every aspect before.
Yeah it is amazing to watch him in there. Only thing that holds him back is his promos come across as a little forced, whereas someone like MacGregor it just comes across completely natural. Seems like it shouldn't be that important, but pound for pound, DJ is a better fighter than Connor, so that's the only thing I can think of...unless we want to blame racism, where's Tyrone Woodley?
