Unfortunately you don't get to choose the champion, its who wins the fights.|
And his stand up is very decent imo. Yes he lacks the flashy head kicks and combinations, but his timing is excellent. And to say he just spams the left hand is a bit disingenuous given that his leg kicks went a long way to towards winning him the fight last night. And lets not forget, he pretty much dominated GSP in the stand-up, so to say he's rubbish is kind of absurd.
Fish fingers and chips pretty straight forward.
