Brookins has a pretty good chin just going off his Aldo fight. Definitely agree on the assessment.
His boxing is so damn rigid it's very ugly to watch. His lateral throws are insane. He seems heavy on top and good on the back but I wouldn't say his ground game is amazing. Nate Diaz would probably eat him for breakfast at this juncture.
I think with some time and better coaches he'll be a top 10 easily in two years. I'm looking forward to what he can bring to the LW division
