No way will the UFC let Benson fight either one of these guys. The UFC brass wants to protect the champion, not jeopardize his career/health.

How much you want to bet that neither of these guys is employed by the UFC in 12 months time.

Fletcher started turning it on in the third. He could be a force with a bit more experience imo.

His opponent was content to take him down and lie on him for 2 of 3 rounds to for the 'win'.

pawing jabs and lame leg kicks is not turning it on especially not when your down 2 round. He looked horrid and the fact he was landing was probably more of a reflection on how horrible Parke was than any kind of glimpse of anything from Fletcher.

I'm not sure Fletcher can improve, tbh. He's not the youngest and seems to lack any of the explosiveness or speed needed to make him properly dangerous on his feet. His ground game is average.

Some fighters you can kind of tell they lack talent. They're hard working, love fighting, want to make a life out of it, but just have a low ceiling. Someone like Bones could probably have been shit hot at a hell of a lot of sports, the guy just has talent.

Fletcher not so much

I think that they could call Phillepe Nover or Efrain Escudero back and the could smash these two.

He landed some good body kicks.

He's one of these guys who needs to establish a rhythm standing and his opponent just kept tying him up and tripping him.

Fletcher was more active on the ground too, going for subs ect.

His opponent 'gameplanned' him. That shit works against UFC level guys let alone against a relative noob like Fletcher.

Yeah, I agree. Norman had a good gameplan and executed it well. I think you guys are being quite harsh to be fair. Norman and Colin were never meant to be world beaters, they are decent fighters and their fight wasn't that bad.

Anyway, Norman is from my hometown, so I'm well chuffed.
