Furthermore, thanks for proving my point. Of the 27 fights you tracked out there, 20 of them are against "good" HW. 4 against MW, and 3 against "bad" HW. No matter how you look at it, he's clearly fighting in one particular weight class there.
Plus, reading your post, I can pretty easily say that you've never been in any fight of any kind before, if all what matters for you is the W-L record of the said fighter on the hockeyfights website. If you saw his fight against Orr, in which he was voted a loser, Orr was actually leaking blood after the fight. Win or lose, punches hurt. It hurts physically AND emotionally. You don't play the same game after getting punched in the face by a guy who is a 212 pounder. You of course also forgot to mention that the guy stands up to a lot of HWs out there, and actually lands some punches that have some effects on them.
You judgment is flawed, you're the only one out there who claims Hordichuk is a middleweight. As for the "unimpressive" fights I chose, well by your comment you just prove further more that you have never been in any fight of any kind, and that you have absolutely no idea what is the effect of getting punched in the face.
Hordichuk will go against guys like Thornton and Orr. He'll lose some, but he'll also win some. If you expect the guy to knock the hell out of each and every opponent he faces, well you don't have an accurate definition/expectation of the role of a tough guy out there. You don't expect him to win each fight. You expect him to face the tough guy from the other team, and to prevent punks from taking liberties at your good players.
Next time you want to start a cordial conversation, stop repeating your own opinion as if it was a fact.
This is pretty childish stuff. What repeating? I talked about Hordichuk in one post. Why do you insist that I'm repeating myself? And why do you mimic my last line? How is that viewed as respectful, or as anything other than childish behaviour?
As far as the claims that I've never been in a fight before ... really, how old are you? How is it possible to have a cordial discussion with someone who thinks on such a base level?
My claim was that Hordichuk's a middleweight (subjective), and that he'll lose more often than not against heavyweights (fact). He also doesn't tend to fight top heavyweights often (fact). I don't claim my opinion is fact: that I categorise him as a middleweight is indeed my perspective. But there are no facts categorising weight classes of fighters, so obviously that's a subjective opinion. If we add disclaimers to every comment we make, posts would be crazy long.
Anyway, this is all irrelevant at this point. I've proven that Hordichuk's not a very good fighter, and that he's often outclassed when fighting heavies. And he rarely fights good heavies at that.
