Yes, definitely. He has some similarities to Karlos Vemola, maybe not that bullrushing though.

he will have more fights after this summmer.
Hes main goal is coming to the UFC within 2 years.
Better not to hurry too much. 3 years would be more reasonable I guess if he only is a pure wrestler so far and never trained any striking arts and grappling. He awfully drops his hands when boxing and that will take some time to get rid of. In addition he has also to learn the submission game from the start. As oldfan has written, there is 2/3 more to go from where he is now and it usually takes at least 3 years to learn one aspect to a good competitive level. There are only a few rare freak athlete exceptions like Jon Jones who are able to bring their skills to a good UFC competitive level within three years. But time will tell how Aardalen does. Any new talent is welcome.
