His career is so strange. He fought in WEC and UFC early on but got dropped from both after one loss in each. He fought in a no name organization, had one absolutely bizarre fight in SF (if you guys haven't seen it, look it up), then a fight in a no name organization again. Re-signed by the UFC, had one convincing win... then had an injury loss to Thiago Silva, then a DQ win to Luiz Cane... then the long-standing fastest KO in UFC history, followed by a loss to Anderson Silva... then a two year hiatus from fighting?

Wtf have you been James?
Heard he was battling a drug addiction?

He's like the Grant Hill of MMA. Lotta injuries and setbacks, but always has electric fights. Going with him for the KO. If he can somehow retain most of his power he can make quick work of anybody. He does need a ground game though. Him vs Mcfedries, Cote, Belcher, Wand, and especially Bisping would be fun to watch!

yeah, when guys cut too much they usually look really pale and veiny and kind of gaunt. Irvin looks like a guy in great shape who has lead a really hard life.

They're probably two of the most tatted fighters in MMA. Great show of respect by both though.

If he didn't have such prominent cheek bones he'd look fine. Anyone that ripped couldn't possibly be considered unhealthy.

Rooting for Irvin. He's been through some hard times. He needs to reinvent himself again although he's built for LHW or even HW. If he can retain his power he'll be a force. Question is how is his cardio and chin right now...

Throw back video.

TBH, the pic isn't alarming to me, I thought he'd look a lot worse making the cut to 185 because he was an above average LHW.

The picture looks so bad because of a combination of the lighting and his prominant cheekbones, thats all.
