Brzeski is seriously not prepared for the UFC, at all. If he stays at heavyweight and fights in the next few months he's going to the hospital. If he uses this to springboard himself to a better gym, get a nutritionist and cut down to LHW or middleweight, he might get lucky enough to lose a decision instead.

I wonder if Brzeski is hesitant to drop to LHW because of his relationship with Blachowicz. It shouldn't affect his decision since he is years away from challenging for a title shot.
