Junie: Nothing Special...

I just watched Junie vs. Rolando. Junie didn't show anything too amazing. In the first round, he let Rolando get about 5 free shots, which was kind of pointless and self-destructive. Throughout the fight, his cardio looked at or maybe even below average. What Junie does have tho is a lot of power in his punches.

I wasn't surprised at all by his skills. Delgado, on the other hand, surprised me with his durability.

I think delgado was way too scrawny, still he absorbed those hits from junie pretty well. Im not sure about that punching power.

Junies stand up is a bit wild.. I dont see him going far against better striker than delgado (wich had no power due too his scrawny build)

Delgado's prob learned his striking the day before and was able to win a round against Junie with it. Junie is not that good. We didn't even get to see Delgado's strongest which is suppose to be his jitz.

Your absolutely right about Junie being nothing special, especially for the way he talks himself up. Awful cardio, which just doesn't work at 155 and nothing special from an athletic standpoint. He is not quick or explosive or really strong. I just cant think of a single 155 pounder in the UFC that Junie could beat, especially with that horrible cardio. There is a good chance he will not even win this show and the 155 pound cast on this show is not a very competitive one from what I have seen.

Yeah i don't think Junie is going to win this show unless he gets his ass in gear. No one so far has impressed me.

Yea within the first 30 seconds of the fight I could tell junie was gassed very tired and sluggish. A well as exhausted as he was he still kicked ass.

How many times did he drop the guy he was fighting? 4 or 5 times?

1 time ? If your talking about grabing a leg and Delgado falling, thats not really kicking ass IMO

Junie failed to impress me as well. He seems like he is all talk and not much else.
