Default Re: the what fights did you watch today\scorecard thread.

The main problem i see for Yuh is speed.

Yuh didn't have more than typical\average quickness of hand or foot nor reflexes by Fly standards.His defence was better than average because he was so fundamentally sound, but he still took a fair amount of shots from the quicker fighters he fought.

Chang at his best had exceptional footspeed and ability to close and create distance in an unorthodox manner, as well as quick hands and strong reflexes.Even guys like Zapata and Chitalada, two of the quickest lateral movers and outfighters in the divisions history couldn't keep chang away or dictate range(Chitalada only really came into the fight after he had fouled open a bad cut on Chang)


He's going to be the one dictating when and where most of the exchanges take place.Yuh can lapse into coming forward in straight lines at a methodical pace, which while a strength against some fighters because of his stamina and output, yet wouldn't serve him well here imo.

I just see him getting beat to the punch and outmaneuvered both on the outside and inside.

That's not to say he'll be thrashed or won't have his own strong moments, however.
