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.
I think it's a bit unfair to judge him this harshly after only seeing two of his fights (unless you have seen more). The guy is only 23, he has a ton of time to learn all sorts of different aspects of MMA. The way I see it, he has excellent wrestling and insane power, this is a great base for him to become something big in MMA.
