No kidding! The guy is looking like a middleweight in there.

On a positive note for Tibau. Despite obviously being exhausted, his take down defense is still excellent.

Two bad performances in a row for Tibau.

Needs to move to 170. You can't cut 30lbs for your whole career, you'll kill yourself.

Easy to call someone a coward from this side of the TV screen. I know you don't really mean that, though.

No, obviously I don't believe Tibau is a legitimate coward. I'm not some schmuck like Roflcopter who calls out fighters for ducking, etc. But Tibau has relied on size as opposed to actual skill for years now. I suspect he'd not even be an average WW, which is why he cuts to LW in the hopes that he might be able to outmuscle his opponents. It's the same thing Anthony Johnson did, and people crucified him. Yet Tibau always manages to get a pass. It's time for him to move up to WW.

That quote I can agree more with. I think Tibau didn't get crucified like Johnson because he is more a likable humble guy, eventually.

Seriously though, is Hieron the best fighter to have fought in the UFC, but never win? The guy is like 0-4 in the UFC overall with losses to St. Pierre, Goulet, Ellenberger, and Woodley. I almost feel bad for him.
