I wonder if that suttle stutter was cured.. Or made worse after his run in with that Atomic upper cut from the Blackbeast...

He starting to realise how the UFC operates, and MMA as a sport. Certain people and money fights happen. When you are at the top and young age in consideration, I believe he can become champ. He has time! When his hands get heavy, He will be unbelievably good.

take it from someone with a missile head myself, you need to tell your barber to straighten your box (hairline) so that your forehead can look more open so that your head doesn't look as small. blessings.

I have followed MMA for several years reasonably, but not super close. Somehow missed Mr. Blaydes. As I see and hear him, it is obvious to me, that he is a BIG heart. This is how he strikes me. I am left feeling good about him as genuine, respectful. Most impressed. I am a new fan of his now. Thank you. As for Mr Helwani, the 'D' word does not occur to me in the slightest either. Reasonable man and undeserving of disparagement and disrespect. Hope he continues to prosper, be heard, and have a platform for his voice.

Curtis needs to ask Bob Perez or Lauren Murphy if Derrick "puts in work". The man lost a lot of weight & got fit but doesn't "put in work" 🤔

Curtis had the mindset . I think he’s hurt Jones .It’s Curtis the blanket Blaydes or the Razor that shows up fight night ..Heavyweight can’t have a goat for too long .. Too many hammers to mess up the undefeated records . The current champ has been blackout ko’d twice .

Love Curtis. Its not for him to change his style to suit the guy trying to take your head off. Do what you do best. Its like asking a swimmer to be a olympic diver. Got love for both him and Derrick. May the best man win.

You’re a casual. You don’t know fighting at all. You sound like your 13 and You’ve probably never seen the inside of a gym. You’re the reason why mma has the worst fans. I respect the victorious, and the defeated. You surely have never seen the inside of a cage 😂

Stipe beats ngannou. Jones beats stipe. Blaydes beat Jones. That would be his path, but everything would have to be just right. However I think stipe KOs Jones and stipe also would edge out a win over blaydes. I can’t see anyone ever beating stipe
