Tavares was 100% and he landed a groin shot too. I don't think he'll be anywhere near main card status anytime soon. His striking isn't too sharp and his grappling doesn't look too good either. He's gonna get taken down and pounded on by any decent MMA wrestler right now. He relies on his chin too much which will cost him a fight sooner or later. That said he's still very young and has 10+ years to go in MMA. Lots of time to improve.
Yes, but but he took 2 groin shots right b4 being taken down for the first time the entire season. I don't understand how you think his striking isn't sharp? I didn't see a better technical striker all season, though he might not have the KO power of Court.
