Happy for bigfoot. But I think he is still a gatekeeper. Sort of like Kongo.

He is sorta well-rounded. But he doesn't destroy you with anything other than size. His striking is solid but on the slow side. His wrestling is average. His BJJ, while a blackbelt, he isn't going to go out and sub anyone decent. More of defensive knowledge.

I think he lacks power for such a big guy. That should be his best weapon really. Browne backpeddled on a broken knee and had no defense to get out of the way. He went backwards and couldn't get his feet under himself. Bigfoot landed a shot that was wide open. Almost a free shot really. And Browne didn't really go out. He peppered Fedor and bloodied him, but didn't put him out. He obviously has power, but not as much as you would expect.

Bigfoot/Mir would be a competitive match I think.

Bigfoot/Struve is a solid fight.

Bigfoot/Kongo makes sense.
