    Imes lookes like a totally different fighter since TUF2. Who would have thought that guy would get two gogoplata submission victories in a row.

    I dont care what he is getting. He is still not at the level of an A level fighter and never will be. That is why he dont fight in the UFC anymore.

    Never tell an Imes never. Brad's only three losses have come in the UFC at the hands of Rashad Evans, Dan Christison, and Heath Herring. All three fights went the distance. The split decision loss to Evans is disputable to say the least. The loss to Christison came at the hands of an already broken elbow that failed him with one minute left in the third round and ahead on all three judges cards. His loss to Herring came after a one year layoff following elbow surgery and the removal of a baseball sized tumor from his sinus. By the way, he won the third round of that fight on two judges cards. The best trainers in the world say that Brad will be the world champion someday. You better believe that Brad will put in the work and possesses the chin to get there.

    He is doing better but I'm not sold on the guy. As for his chin, last thing I remember is him getting dropped twice by a LHW…Rashaad in TUF2. Dan Christinson is not a good fighter at all, he lost in the UFC and lost in the IFL. I don't have any respect for Herring after he let Nogiera off the hook in his last fight.

    yeah brian u must know Imes personally or u are his stalker because nobody in their right mind thinks Imes will be champ. He doesnt have the skills to be champ. Just like KOPOWER said his chins sucks. Rashad fucked him up. That is not disputable. Sorry he lost plain and simple. It should have been unanimous. Gabriel Gonzaga Arlovski Sylvia or even Vera could take him out . Nogueria the list goes on and on. He cant even cut it in the UFC so how is he gonna be champ. U need to face the facts bro.
