He has limited all around skills, but they should sign him for entertainment purposes. He knocked out Mark Hunt which speaks volumes about his power. His stand up is excellent, although it's hard for me to look passed him getting knocked out by Robbie Lawler. It was a fight Manhoef was pretty much dominating, but he got overzealous, and Lawler caught him. Of course Lawler has a lot of power himself, but his stand up is actually not very good in my opinion. He got outstruck by Smith in both fights up until he finished him in the second. I guess his knock out power has been able to carry him a little bit. Didn't he also get out struck by Babalu for the majority of their fight and end up losing a decision? Yeah.... Enough said.
That being said, if Manhoef doesn't get too overzealous and get knocked out by inferior strikers, I wouldn't mind seeing him in the UFC. He's an extremely exciting fighter.
