    Zain is a 65kg guy.  I can't see him doing that to Chamizo, who is a top-tier 74kg wrestler.

    yeah plus chamizo is just too athletic. I think Zain is a fairly modest athlete when compared to other 3 timers.

    well, first...

    i'm not 12...

    secondly...

    name one fighter that was in a UFC title fight in 3 years of full time MMA training...

    not just within their first fight, but, just their training...

    because that is where downey is right now...

    just full time training....

    How many years your need?

    very few get that many chances because very few are as talented as downey...

    i don't care how much anyone despises him, to not respect the skills is just silly...

    it shows a ridiculous "lack of experience"...

    I'll bet you 100$ he isn't in a UFC title fight in the next 3 years.

    MMA is full of fuk ups... he will fit right in...

    we could go down the list of fighters who are at least the equal of a fuk up as downey that do just fine in MMA...

    let me know if you would like to do that... ill try to block off some time...

    I didn't say F up, I said couldn't maintain a training situation or a coach. 

    Your list has to have guys who went to 4 colleges, a club, and a sponsor...so 6 rejections deeps...despite a lot of talent.

    ha...

    we can revisit this as many times as necessary in the future...

    Not necessary, but i'll put it this way, Downey can't maintain a training environment or a coach, he isn't gonna succeed in MMA. If he was he would have dumped wrestling long ago, just for the attention.

    he isn't allowed to even compete for USAW anymore...

    and he will smash kill destroy most everyone in MMA...

    no matter what you or anyone might think of him, he is a legitimate athlete still very close to his prime and MMA sees precious few of those...

    this is when your lack of experience shows

    However annoying his rejoinders are it is also at least clear that it is intentional because it is hilarious to him to watch the rest of you flail in response. Everyone else is going insane because they can't help but respond, which is a sickness. You actually can leave him hanging with the last word and you won't turn to dust. I promise.

    I don't know why you give LBJ so much credit he has a bit of an issue not responding himself....

    This is a long and roundabout way of saying there are going to be angry people no matter what the final decision is but all possible answers have reasonable justifications. Sometimes life is funny like that. 

    There is no conceivable justification for them saying the US Open Winners would "likely" be the reps. It just makes USAW look corrupt and stupid.

    Pure speculation, but, they could use it as an excuse to say we aren’t going as we don’t have a full “team” properly chosen...

    that saves a large chunk of change in a year where their revenue stream has taken a huge hit...

    If that was their endgame I think they would just claim fear for the safety of athletes/families etc as a rationale for not sending a team...but we'll see how it plays out.
