It is impressive but the fights weren't. He caught Forrest which was nice but nothing to scream from the mountain top about especially since Forrest really has never faced a good striker beside Jardine.

And his win over Chuck while Impressive is somewhat less impressive because he got beaten up in the 1st round and then Liddell kinda just stopped fighting.

Add in his loss to Houston and his "win" over Gouveia I find it hard to put him as high as a lot of other people. Maybe he will school Wanderlei and prove me wrong but I see a guy with average ground game, average wrestling, slightly above average stand up, and above average power. basically Bisping with Power.

That's not true. Many states don't regulate MMA at all but don't ban it, Minnesota, for example. If a promoter wanted to allow stomps, he could. Hawaii's expanded regulation, which includes defining rules, doesn't go into effect until next year, which is why Baroni took a few stomps to the head in his most recent fight.

So a first round stoppage of Forrest Griffin isn't impressive? And out striking the most feared striker in the UFC isn't impressive either? I think you are just being a hater D;

Oh yeah I forgot Icon allows stomps, but if they did it anywhere else I'm not sure but you're most likely right.

No it's impressive but it's not amazing or anything. I mean stopping Forrest Griffin standing really doesn't mean all that much at the moment because he's never brawled with anyone good on their feet before.

Beating Liddell is impressive but not nearly as impressive as if he beat Liddell and Liddell didn't basically stop fighting in the last two rounds.
