How many other Brazilians have fallen off in the USADA era? Lots of those dudes looked unstoppable before USADA and now they are either bad or gatekeepers at best.

I’ve wondered this too. He was a straight killer like I thought he’d rule the division for a decade

RDA is another one. Dude looked like a terminator at 155.

Agreed watching him dismantle Pettis with crazy pressure but he was great on his feet and the ground too. So freakin strong

Yep. He is 5-5 since that fight after going 10-1 with his only loss being to Khabib.

IDK, his best win before was either Cowboy or Pettis. His best win post was either Cowboy or Lawler. 

He lost to Usman and Colby post, just like he lost to Khabib before (and at a higher weight).

I don't think anybody he has lost to post USADA has lost a fight in the last 5 years besides Eddie.

He rattled off 3 straight vs Benson, Nate, and Pettis before Cowboy and he did it in dominant fashion while also beating Cerrone prior to the Khabib fight. That's nothing to sneeze at. 

Yeah, his opponents have been really good lately but he hasn't even looked the same in the fights he won.

Charles Oliveira hasn't been to a decision in the last five years. He's had two decisions in 9 years in the ufc.

He's also on a tear right now. Probably time to give him the test of a top guy again.

Kevin Lee would be a really interesting matchup imo
