I thought he looked good against Yokoi and Imes. Granted, Yokoi sucked, but Imes pulled off gogoplata's. still, he looked good. Also, he has a win over Kongo.

Just saw it. Not bad, Wiuff is huge and slow but Mo showed some great explosion dodging his swings. I'm not totally on board yet, but he's definately not bad.

Who won this fight exactly cause several sites have different outcomes for some reason. Sherdog even has it as a Wiuff win

Edit: I see they changed it to a lose

I thought he looked good against Imes but Imes isn't very good even with the Gogo's.

His win over Kongo was one of the ugliest fights I've ever seen.

Honestly I don't think Herring is really even a solid fighter anymore. His ground game isn't very good anymore and his takedown defense might be the worse in MMA.

His stand up is about average but he can't keep fights on the feet.

Agreed! Don't forget to mention Herring got lay "n" prayed by Jake O'Brian! That had to been one of his worst performances to date.

Good win for Mo. Not going to jump on his bandwagon just let. We should see what he does in his next few fights.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

It really seems as though Japan is where MMA stars are born.

What's with Team Quest picking up explosive and charismatic black dudes? Mo has power and great athleticism, but there are still a lot of questions we have to find answers to. A great win, nonetheless, and another fighter to look out for.

Just saw the fight. Definitely a guy to keep an eye on. On top of his wrestling creds, hell of an athlete, very quick and looks to have some natural striking ability which is always a major plus when you're talking about fighters who come from grappling backgrounds.

That punch turned Wiuff into the very definition of out on your feet.

Lol, asked myself the exact same thing repped. I'm not on the bandwagon either, but this is one of the more impressive first matches i've EVER seen, so I thought the guy deserved a thread.

He looked alright.

Though I don't think he'll go far in either division (heavyweight or light heavyweight) because there are so many explosive ultra talented fighters just like him with better striking/BJJ/well roundedness.

Against Fedor/Cheick Kongo/Antonio Silva/Nogueira/etc he will lose.

Mo would take down Kongo easily and I don't think Kongo would get up.

Having great wrestling skills defiantly will help him go far.
