I like to think of myself as a fan of Brandon's muay thai, but there are several deficiencies in his fight game which concern me:
1. Strength: Brandon has a background in greco-roman, but unlike Couture, he tends to get bullied in the clinch. This has not only happened in one fight against one opponent, it has happened several times now. Both Jardine and Couture have gotten a hold of him, pushed him against the cage, and basically had their way with him.
Brandon's TDD is good, but he's got to do something from the clinch, aside from getting punched in the face repeatedly.
2. Footwork: this is his main weakness. He's flat footed, with little lateral movement or in and out movement. He just stands there, right in front of his opponent.
This makes it very easy for stronger opponents to catch up to him and smother him. This completely negates his ability to strike.
Bottom line: Brandon is too easy to figure out, and his offense, based upon kicks and punches, is rendered ineffective by any opponent who wants to simply wade in, grab him and smother him.
Jon Jones has way too much offense for Brandon. Brandon is going to wind up as just another notch on Jones' belt.
