I have a rep for hating on Loma because I don’t think TR should have refused to fight Berchelt at 130 and Garcia at 135. Seems like everyone should want the best vs the best but some just like their guys I guess.
Even though I don’t think Lopez is ready for this I’m excited for it. I see Lopez as the best opponent for Loma since Russell. He has a good list of names but each had a serious disadvantage since Gary.
I fully expect Loma to expose all Lopez limitations but that is because Loma is Loma, not a knock on Lopez. At the same time, Lopez is a threat and that’s something we’ve been waiting for for a while. No weak chin, no heavy feet, no moving up in weight. We have a talented full blown lightweight vs a legend, what more could we ask for?(was shocked to see Loma looked bigger than him side by side)
