    Jagba's been working with Kay Koroma for about what, 8 months now.

    If he's been soaking up that veteran's knowledge like a sponge, we should see a completely different beast in the ring next week.

I'd still throw money on him getting a title shot one day. Idk if he wins it or gets KO'd in 2, but I think its a good bet he'll at least get that far.

    And lets not forgot if Teo was a stock plenty of mfers woulda been selling him like crazy after that Nakatani fight & that'd been the wrong move.
    I liked Ajagba and still do. I thought he looked real good against Demirezen. He had to go the full distance against an undefeated opponent, who was a decorated amateur, for the full 10 rounds. Kiladze and, to a lesser extent, Cojanu were able to hilight some defensive weaknesses. Against Rice, he underwhelmed and seemed less aggressive. It may take some time under Koroma to get comfortable and correct some of the holes in his game. Hopefully he can get there because he's typically enjoyable to watch in the ring.

    Out of all the other 2017 prospects - Yoka, Dubois, Joyce, Hrgovic, Sanchez - it feels like Ajagba is moving a little slower then they are. I'd expect by now Ajagba would've fought for one of those smaller regional titles like the usba or something.

    You mother fuckers!

    I lived in Tulsa all my damn life and the best you guys could give me was a FNF card like 10+ years ago, and now that I'm gone theyre gonna do Braekhus-McCaskill I and Smith-Vlasov within like an eight month span?

    Bull****!

    I'm so glad to see Trey Lippe morrison back, I was wondering if he'd retired. I thought he looked awesome againt 13-0 Ed Latimore back in 2016.
