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

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

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.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

What a top bloke.

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.
