Typical wrestler with long arms. If he ever fights anyone who has actually wrestled , he will lose. Lawyer, Gastelum, Woodley, Till, Wonderboy, Costa, and if Hendricks can go back to 170. I can name several more fighters who will beat this guy but he hasn’t really lost, so I’ll let him expose himself . He is a not a problem at all.

 

As a wrestler, I dislike his style of fighting . Never works to improve, pass guard, or land damage. Judging needs to improve otherwise guys look usman will abuse the scoring system by simply staying on top.

Also, Michael Chandler starches him in an MMA fight . Usman is an overrated wrestler in my opinion. And the technicality shows

I don't know any lawyer who could presently take on and out wrestle Usman at 170 in 2018.

At this point, Woodley and Wonderboy would beat Usman convincingly though...

Why would he go into Maia's guard? He circled away from it brilliantly. He fought with strategic IQ. He also had 2 broken hands, but kept swinging haymakers.

He's the WW Phil Davis imo, very athletic, has all the tools to be a great but not a fighter. 

 

Just does enough to win

 

When Davis fought Rashad years ago, Rashad said the same thing, Davis wasn't a fighter at heart. And Rashad dominated the fight and won. Davis also lost to Rumble and most recently Bader.

 

Usman is no different imo, big athletic but no true killer instinct. He isn't going to win any fans with that style of his. He's beatable for sure at the moment. Athleticism can only go so far

Costa, a 6'1 top prospect at middleweight that walks around at 200+lbs? You don't say...

I want to see him and Colby go at it, and that's it. Otherwise, he bores the fuck out of me. 

Would you keep watching the UFC if all fighter fought like him?

Traditionally it has been. GSP had a lot of boring fights, Fitch, Koscheck, etc. We got a shot of something when Lawyer, Rory etc were going to war, but that has faded.

Alright, I can take a hint. Let me dust off the gloves, get my fat ass into shape, and improve my chin.
