Sadly very true. He is young enough to still have his faculties and health. And with his education and intellect he should be able to do well in the future.

<blockquote>Another Foob - Needs to drop to bantam, imo. Scarecrow looked 2 weight classes above him, and that made all the difference.</blockquote><br /> He walks around at 160 lb so he is pretty small for 145 considering some guys cut from 175. The problem is for mark he's ripped at weigh ins so I highly doubt he could lose an extra 10lb. If anything he would have to gain muscle but its too late for him now. Hes had a great career and I have nothing but respect for him. The heart he has shown in his fights and his technical stand-up have always made him one of if not my favourite fight to watch. I maybe be a little bias cause I train at his gym but whatever. Hopefully UFC Canada employees him cause he is one of the classiest guys in the sport

Needs to drop to bantam, imo. Scarecrow looked 2 weight classes above him, and that made all the difference.
