Tommy has good wrestling. Do I think he will ever be a force in the welterweight division? No. Top Ten? Definitely not. He doesn't have the raw striking talent. He has the wrestling talent but he is the kind of guy who just will never develope an explosive effective striking game which is crucial for any fighter. I think he could learn the submittion game because it is a natural progression from wrestling but he needs way better striking which I don't think he can ever get just due to the way he is built. He's not very naturally explosive with his strikes and that's the kind of thing you can't learn.
