Lentz just beat down Diego Nunes. That really wasn't even a fight. He just manhandled him like a small child. I think he's 3-0 now at 145lbs. Dude looks like he's gonna be hard to stop at this weight class with his wrestling skills.

Yes, dropping the weight class has done wonders for him. He's basically the Jon Fitch of the 45'ers, a tough fight for anybody in that division. I'd like to see him fight Brimage or Oliviera next.

Yeah most people had Nunes in the top 10. That was an impressive win for sure.

Pretty solid performance from him, I'd match him up with Siver.

Wouldn't mind seeing him take on Diego Brandao, Andy Ogle or Akira Corassani.

Dennis Bermudez would be a good match to see who best wrestler at 145 is.

He still is but on a higher level. Hence the Jon Fitch comparison.

WOW..He's got some Brutal Ground and Pound. I know at 155 he was really boring and just basically layed on guys. But I think since dropping to 145 he has been flat wrecking dudes. Kinda like Chael Sonnen style...
