I don't think it is ridiculous to think that he could take Silva down and submit him. He probably wouldn't, but he is really the only guy at 185 with half a shot at beating The Spider.
He is legit. I am just wondering if his standup will be easily countered by Silva...or maybe (just maybe!) even Boetsch.
Either way, I'm glad he at least has another fight with a decent striker before this train takes off at full speed towards a title shot.
