    He's still missing close to half of them, which is one reason why he's called wild.

    Daniel, you need to worry about just fighting ANYONE at this point. You definitely aren't getting any younger.

    He probably uses between 6 and 7. Actually, probably around 6.34, because the pieces arent really whole all the time.

    It isn't about how many he throws, it is just a psychological thing makes a lot of guys tentative. Flying knees, spinning elbows/backfists etc are part of his psychological advantage.

    My point wasn't that he throws them all the time, just that they are a big reason other fighters are tentative fighting him. When he becomes more conservative (Nearly every fighter with his style does when they get stopped the first time), he will lose that psychological advantage, and fighters will start beating him because they are more confident, not because he is worse.

    A. Silva is also unpredictable and dangerous, but not wild. He is extremely calculating and lightning fast. I don't think JJ will ever have that.

    Zuffa needs to be careful what they do over Cormier Showtime has control of him right now and knows he's gone after one fight. The Cormeir talk will help sell his last fight under SF which Showtime likes, but could pull his opponent and have him for the next SF event too.The UFC has the luxury knowing he won't go else where [highly unlikely any how]

    Prob is, it would be stupid to try that against DC, whose wrestling is perhaps the best in either LHW/HW division. DC is very agile and quick for a big dude and if JJ throws a wild strike of any kind, DC could make him pay for it by coming underneath with a TD.

    It's an intriguing fight, and I would love to see it one day.

    I would think he take his last SF fight at HW and work down to 205 at the same time. Zuffa just needs to find him an opponent already.
