"Iam waiting to the day when more strikers with the same credibilities will enter mma."

I'm with ya. Not sure how that will happen though. In days of past boxing gyms everywhere were pumping out fighters. It seems these days the emphasis is almost entirely on ground fighting.
At the school I train at (for hobby) most of the fighters are entirely focused on wrestling and BJJ. When it comes time for them to fight it's kinda like, oh yeah lets spar some to get ready for this fight. No real training on striking technique or head and foot work.

Cuban? Boxing in Cuba is almost like football in Brazil.
He's been training with the Cuban National Boxing Team for the last 2 years and is going to start training at ATT in Florida.

Scary prospect.

Yeah, this dude should do pretty good. The question though is whether he's going to go right into MMA or keep wrestling?

When I think about ATT two disasters come into my mind
1-Kimbo Slice
2-Mark Hunt

I hope he won't join the list above

Hunt hasn't been relevant in years, Kimbo never was (outside of the media hype machine).

Thiago Alves, Thiago Silva, Jeff Monson, Tyron Woodley and Hector Lombard are pretty legit.
