He has huge knock out power, probably the most current devastating KO artist in any LW division and is an over all excellent grappler.
I for one can't wait to see Eddie prove his worth in the UFC and start KO'ing fools left and right.
Except for the fact that he gets dropped in almost every fight. Therefore showing at least not great defense. I agree that he's a great and exciting fighter but I really don't agree with him getting a title shot off the rip. I'd still love to see him fight in the UFC though, because he'd further stack an already stacked division.
