I loved the show sweet fights
If Chandler and Alvarez's 3rd fight is anything like the first two fights, it is easily the greatest trilogy in MMA history, period! This is in terms of the actual fight itself and not in terms of the importance in the landscape of the division. In terms of importance, Fedor/Nog and Liddell/Couture would be the two biggest.
Does anyone know who the striking coaches are at Alliance MMA? Vera maybe?
I just don't get how a coach would let him carry his hands so low against someone who likely wasn't going to shoot a takedown other than out of opportunity or desparation.
I agree, but don't you think he would be an absolute nightmare for Alvarez if he carried his hands higher and tightened up his punching?? (As if he wasn't already a nightmare for anyone)
It would be interesting to hear from some judges if they took a fighter keeping their hands down in consideration for scoring. What comes to mind is in the instance of fatigue.
You are correct. I don't see anyone dethroning JDS as the #2 guys for a while. A fourth fight is pretty much enevitable.
