  • Can't ever go wrong rooting for Cub. The guy went from getting knee'd by Aldo, to destroying opponents in the UFC. When he dismantled Choi, I knew that Cub wasn't going anywhere anytime soon. The guy is a warrior and shows that he can adapt and learn to be a better fighter. Has never been KO'd ever in his career.

  • There is a reason Cub is a fan favorite, and this video does a great job showcasing that, as well as his words. It is too bad to see him lose last night, but without making it to the top, he cemented his legacy in a division of killers.

  • He's one of those great fighters that never won a ufc title. The division has moved past him, but he'll always be remembered for the wars he had. I wish he got to challenge Jose Aldo for the title when they were both in their primes.
