Rooting for..

He has pretty good hands and he's powerful.
But thats about it. I see him getting outclassed by a lot of heavyweights.

He hasn't shown any real skills yet. Hard to say.

He's good, but I don't see him going very far. I don't think he is the next big thing, more like a novelty that will burn out eventually.

hard to say. He has fought no one that is a legitimate fighter yet. Tank looked as if he didn't even want to be there except to get paid. It is possible he could be come decent, but not top class.

He's beat Tank Abott and Bo Cantrell.

He just punched a fat dude in the face, and punched a vagina in the face. Hard to say if he's the real deal.

The first person to shoot in and secure a take down will be the first to beat him. Don't see it happening for a while because Gary Shaw, unlike Dana White & Brock Lesnar, want to protect there assets. He'll just fight crap fighters and improve that record.

1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah
