If this guy comes to the UFC he would get SMASHED by the UFC WW division.

GSP- Would ragdoll this dude and it would be ugly

Fitch- A solid 3 round beating from Fitch, wrestling wrestling, wrestling

Koscheck- Same as Fitch

Alves- Sorry but Thiago Alves is no Sakurai, he would overwhelm this dude with his brute size and power

Hughes- Wrestling and and a good top game beat a one dimensional striker everytime

Swick- Tall rangy striker with fast hands that is big for 170. He wins this fight pretty easily. And Swick got a nice groundgame.

Kampmann- Same as Swick

Condit- Same as Swick and Condit

Karo- Judo 101, Karo beats this dude down in a ragdoll display of judo

Trigg- Trigg beat Misaki with ease who is a very good MW striker and would have no trouble with a lay and pray victory.

Then you got tough guys like Haz,Hardy, and even a big strong scrapper like Marcus Davis that I think would all beat this guy.

Im not trying to say what he did wasnt impressive. He just didnt do it against a legit WW.

So by saying he is the next big thing, what do you mean? Top 10? Top 5? Could he beat GSP?

If you look at the guys I just mentioned and how they match up with him. I think you will see that calling him the next big thing is a bit of an overreaction. Send him to the OCtogon and the wolves of the WW division and, if he starts finishing sum of these guys with HK's ill be impressed.
Woo speaking of overreaction , he didn't mention once that he would beat any certain people, just mentioned a star was born.

Look what the lightweight gran prix did for Eddie Alverez, just might be the same for Zaromskis.

Maybbe i'm a little biased but I had him the fight against Sakurai until he lands his high kick and Sakurai is top 15 at best .

Agreed, that was my favorite card of the year so far, Dream 11 is looking like one of the best cards ive ever seen.

I dont know about that, but it was amazing to watch and I hope your right. From Ikemoto/Saffeidine being a fun fight, Sakurai-Zaromskis was very good and ended awesomely, I had Galvao beating High, but it was close fight I enjoyed watching, even though Dida is my second favorite LW seeing Kikuno's creepy mantis style was awesome, Filho-Manhoef was a fight between two of my favorites and im glad to see Paulo looking stable again in a very Nog-like performance, Aoki-Shaolin kinda sucked, it was Aoki throwing that same kick for like 12 minutes then Shaolin getting on top and working a little bit, only fight I didnt like, Taylor looked much improved until Dongbar was unfortunately injured, and Zaromskis-High was epic, just insane KO. With work on the HW and LHW division Dream could be like Pride, and I cant wait for their future.

I really like this guy. He's a madman, but a good one in that. He has Chuck's standup style, the weird mind of Sakuraba and he's craving for knockouts like Igor.

By the way, what did Saku say about fighting Akiyama later this year? Doesn't he know Sexyama is with the UFC?

Wow, I didn't even think about that. That is strange. Maybe there was an error in translation?
