My problem with him is that in MMA fights, he stands inside the pocket just like in K-1, acting like his wearing those big boxing gloves. At least in the Werdum fight he did. There are a lot of questions to be answered here, his style works perfectly in kickboxing but does it work under MMA rules as well? We shall see.
