No one Really good? Thats crazy. He's had 7 professional MMA fights not one has gone beyond the 2nd round. 5 wins by TKO 1 submission and 1 decision.

His last 3 fights were against opponents that each outweighed him by 20 to 30 pounds or more, and he just plowed his way thru each of them enforcing his will every time.

He took out Fabiano Scherner, Justin Eilers, and Assuerio Silva his last 3 fights like they were nobody. Not a one of those guys is a pushover by any means.

This guys stated goal is to be the first UFC fighter to hold the heavy and light heavy belt and I think he's the guy that could do it. He's walking the walk and backing it all up.

The Washington Post has a great article on the guy here.
