Yeah, I don't think it is a full NTRP difference. I think Matt Lin is shortchanging himself and giving too much credit to his opponent.
Opponent is probably mid to high 5.5, while Matt Lin is probably higher end 5.0.
If Matt Lin made the commitment to get stronger and more fit, he could hang in my opinion.
