Id like to see him develop better striking and just ring IQ and energy management generally. His entries are top notch but he doesn't shoot at opportune times, and he's either way too low volume or way too inaccurate. He needs to start chaining things together much better and picking his shots. I don't think xtreme couture is helping him TBH. His wrestling isn't the issue, it's his lack of fighting intelligence and predictable hands. I can't remember him ever throwing an uppercut, he rarely ever goes to the body and he's always fishing for the hail mary, and everybody knows it. He's too easy to read--he's just waiting for the moment he catches his opponent so her can get on top, but against the top guys, it tends not to happen because his striking isn't good enough to make it happen, and if they have a strong wrestling base like Iaquinta and RDA ( RDA does have good TDD, everyone looks **** in that department against Usman and Colby) then he gases and either gets decisioned or finished. I reckon AKA is a better fit for for him.

i picked lee to win with very low confidence, i agree with just about everything swain said. first up he needs to fix his cardio im not sure if that means new strength and conditioning regime or better management during the fight, prolly both. but hes also right that some guys will never have 5 round cardio and conor jumps into my mind on that point. i think lee is talented and hes still young at 26, maybe a camp change? get out of his comfort zone?

I think scoring the round towards RDA was similar to the Jacare/Kelvin fight...body language. Even though Lee and , IMO, Jacare did more in a particular round, they wore their exhaustion on their faces. Watching the struggle makes it look like they’re losing or doing less. Even though I felt they won a round, JAcare I thought won the fight (not robbery guys just close one could be scored either way).  Looking exhausted makes you look desperate and it’s easy for a judge To overlook the quality work you’ve done and only see that struggle. JUst my guess.
