His standup is something else, but he is terribly one dimensional. Matt Brown dominated him on the ground, and he isn't exactly a grappling guru himself.

Hopefully he shows some improvement because his kick boxing really is impressive. Whittaker will be a good test for him to see if he has made any improvements because Whittaker isn't great, but he is competent and is somewhat rounded from what I've seen. Of course if its all standup though, it won't tell us much.
