Time for something to eat. 4am scrambled eggs sounds about right.

Man that was boring as shit. And this is coming from a Fitch fan! Yushin is capable of sooooo much more than that. I was rooting for Belcher, but Yushin had him in deep shit a few times and did nothing with it. Kid needs to get some killer instinct.

Because it isn't being compared to the last slopfest and is instead being judged against any half-decent fight ever.

You really think that performance was worthy of "beast"? He's a former contender, lost the striking in the fight, won by smother. Yeah he won, but that wasn't beastly, it was snuggly.

I'll admit Belcher had a role in creating those boring TD hugfests with his pulling guard and going for subs he should have known he couldn't complete.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Yushin grinds out wins with superior grappling. Not many fighters have an answer for it.

Even at that, he barely won the ground striking. He has AMAZING control but he needs to do something with it to earn the moniker of "Beast." It's very impressive he can control guys like that, but until he starts slinging leather, throwing elbows or at least LOOKING for submissions I think he's going to have to take the Fitch route to the title... again. Meaning it won't happen.

EDIT: Yes, I realize "OMFG JON IS A HUMAN BLANKET LOLZ" is going to come out of this. It's not true though. Jon is constant pressure when he's on top. Even if they aren't hard shots, there's a shitload of them.

Yeah, fair enough, I was mainly referring to his strength/grappling as opposed to his overall MMA skills. He just plain overpowered Belcher out of back control and numerous guillotines. Belcher was powerless, even on Okami's back, and that's reasonably impressive.
