It comes down to Barboza’s wins over Etim and Pearson outweighing the guys ranked below him. Rafael Dos Anjos is on a solid run, but his recent loss to Tibau holds him back. Same thing for Tibau, he was looking solid up until the decision loss to Nurmagomedov. Stephens’ biggest win in recent years is Marcus Davis, in a fight he was losing until a 3rd round knockout. All of these fighters have some sort of hiccup on their resume. I’m not trying to discount Barboza’s loss against Varner, but all of the guys below him have experienced the same thing.
When it comes to dental hygiene, most Americans are slackers: 1 in 2 don’t brush twice a day, and 3 in 4 don’t replace their bristles every three months, no matter how many times they’re warned of the risks (which include cavities and gum disease). “We needed to get people to care a lot more,” says designer Simon Enever. So he and partner Bill May set out to make brushing feel more rewarding. The result is Quip, a simple, affordable, battery-powered toothbrush that works like its counterparts from Oral-B and Sonicare—a two-minute timer vibrates every 30 seconds, reminding users to switch positions—but looks and feels like something you’d find in an Apple store; customers can even opt for a matte metallic finish. “It’s a nicer experience,” says Enever, who adds that he’s already working on his next design challenge: getting you to floss.
