Murphy is very cool - working on something on that performance myself so not listening yet, but I did really enjoy how this performance served as a contrast to Yusuff also trying to 1-2 Barboza to death but kinda just approaching it as "just jab as much as possible"

Also liked Lerone's answers to Barboza's counter jab and even getting his leg cooked, where he actually used the southpaw approach smartly (to either shift in while protecting the leg at range, or reduce his need to cover distance into the jab by just double-attacking). Could definitely see him being elite, particularly since he's 8 years pro even with the big break in the middle for the bike accident
