I think AA needs to beat a top contender to earn a spot and he also has to wait behind Sylvia who is ahead of him. I like AA but he needs to get agressive again he's been pretty boring since Sylvia beat him the first time.
AA IMO would do ok against the current HW divison
AA vs Couture Win idk I think AA takes it but it'll be tough
AA vs Sylvia 4 Win I don't care because I won't watch this fight if it happens
AA vs Big Nog Loss Big Nog has faced better strikers then AA and beaten them.
AA vs Cro Cop Loss I think Cro Cop would sit back and catch him with a kick
AA vs Gonzaga Win Until I see more of Gonzaga's stand up I think AA is a good match up for him
AA vs Fedor Loss AA worst match up in MMA is Fedor a guy who is better in stand up and will destroy him on the ground.
