Come on... Paul Craig is not only a terrible fighter but he's an absolute jerk. His whole beef with Stevie Ray pissed me off, calling a dude out for financial trouble that he had in the past. Just petty.

In fact, I just became a Rountree fan. Craig was saying how Khalil had no chance to KO him, well... so much for that. LOL. It was a perfect celebration. Very fitting.

Nelson's suspect striking d still exists. He's too aloof. I think that's always going to be his downfall when it comes to getting to the top. He's offensively gifted, but defensively not so much.

Ponzinibbio was the guy to take advantage of it. Sharp counter-striker who is never out of a fight or exchange. He has sort of the opposite problem. He's almost too fiery. But it's easier to dial that down than up.

Felder has looked visually great since joining Roufus', although the competition hasn't been stellar. He was a dog today. Always good in the clinch in the clinch and he's vicious. Elbows from top are my jam, because you can shorten your arm and get through tight guard. Hardy is right that they're underused overall in mma (not that they are rare). I'm always thinking a guy should fire off elbows over the unders along the cage. Always liked Felder's potential. Maybe he's finally putting it together, but have to see against a striker who moves a lot and fights off rhythm, or a particularly good grappler. Maybe he could fight Leonardo Santos. Then be the next Chuck Norris.

Yea I have no idea who Paul Craig is or what he's said in the past. Its actually pretty irrelevant to me. Unless you are a scumbag like Michael Johnson who sh*t talks people's family before fights, I think any smacktalk is fair game for promotion. I'm fine with hostility after a fight as well, but standing over or taunting concussed opponents is a scumbag move.

Well he did make fun of Stevie for not being able to support his kids. Khalil is a really nice guy from what I saw on TUF too. I didn't mind it when MJ did the same thing against Dustin tbh lol

I don't watch TUF or know who Stevie is.

MJ did his scumbaggery vs Dustin after the fight when Dustin was KOed just like Rountree did. I was referring to the Gaetche pre-fight talk when he was calling him and his family inbred.
