Another person on 2 days who wants to see him against a fellow Blackzilian. Tough to say where his wrestlings at when all we saw was striking on his fight.

Would Spong do well in the ufc?.

I know this could be a few years away, or it might not even happen, but how would Spong do in the UFC?

He looked good over the weekend in his mma debut, and I know it wernt against much of an opponent but he looked impressive none the less. I've also seen him against Overeem in k1 and he held him own there.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Eventually he could do very, very well. Right now he would get exposed by any wrestler. But he is strong and athletic and once he gets experience in the cage and improves his take down defense he could be a real problem for fighters in his division.

In all reality they could bring him to the UFC and give him favourable matchups to a title shot right now. Yvel, Cyrille Diabate, Rampage.

Oh yes. Rampage wants a striker, let's give him one. Also Manuwa vs Spong. And Mousasi once he get's signed. So much good fights.

Let's start it off with Melvin Manhoef, then Thiago Silva and finish it off with Mark Hunt. Screw weight class, the world will be entertained.

Manhoef again. He knew he was outclassed the first time. Manhoef is good, but he doesn't have the crisp striking Spong possesses. Spong was hunting him down the entire kick boxing bout rattling him several times.

Now Hunt would be interesting. I'd like to see Spong vs Griffin...lolz. Then Hendo and Shogun.

Tons of exciting match ups. A HW fighter who's fighting at LHW. In fact he looks like he can cut down to 185 even. Actually I'd like to see how he fares against Vitor and Alan Belcher.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Melvin ain't scared of no one, even if they did beat him before. He would be confident and coming for the kill until he got KTFO cold, which would be mucho, mucho entertaining!

Who cares if he can beat Hunt? Maybe he can do to Hunt what Melvin did to Hunt? Or maybe Hunt takes em all and dishes out the KO? I do know one thing, it would entertain everyone that saw it....FOREVER!

I'd like to see him take out a few more tomato cans (because let's face it, it's fun to watch fat guys get KO'd) when he hits 5-0 that's when the UFC should sign him.
