Excited for Gunnar Nelson
 
I thought the UFC FX 5 had some entertaining fights! I liked it.

One of the reasons in particular I liked it was because of Gunnar Nelson. Man he sure looked good. I hadn't heard of him at the time, and when I saw his stand up I got pretty excited. Then I realized he's even better on the ground!

He is a guy I'm hoping will make an impact on the division, but I don't know enough about him to really suspect one way or another. I saw some of his older fights. And I enjoy his (or lack there of) personality after the fight.

You guys think he'll make a splash in the WW div?

Now everyone will start to recognize who has been in my avatar since joining this forum :thumb02:

Gunnar is a monster on the ground but as with all BJJ specialists I think he'll struggle when the standard of opponent increases.

Yea, Nelson, Rory Mac and Erick Silva are gonna be the 3 top WW's in a few years time.

He is awesome and been on a tear for a while, can't wait to see him fight a top tier opponent, then we will know!

He's part of the exclusive Team CB clique :D

I've only seen his UFC debut but he looks like someone I'd like to watch.

Had never heard of him. After that fight I'm a fan already. Can't wait to see more of him, will definitely have to check his previous fights out.

Someone posted this a while back. This made me an instant fan. His first fight left me very impressed. I'm excited to see how high up the ladder he can get.

What a top bloke.:thumbsup:

The only heads up I ever had about this guy was from Hiro a year or so back. I love guys with this kind of temperament. Totally relaxed like nothing is up ever. Rory has the same vibe about him.

I posted it in a thread about him joining the UFC, along with some of his older fights: http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc/103127-s...ining-ufc.html

I definitely like his calm and it's good to see that he did so well in his UFC debut.
