I agree. He's a good fighter and telegenic but I've yet to see him paired with anyone *really* good and I think he only has 4 or 5 MMA fights - so we'll have to see.

He's already stated he wants Liddel. I think that's a little crazy.I guess you have to do what you have to do to get noticed.If he keeps up with these 1st round kos he won't need to call anyone out. I think he's currently 6and 0 or 7 and o

If he stays on pace with what he is doing, he could be good. Until he loses he won't be the best. After the first loss, that's when the fighter becomes more aware of what he is doing and that of his opponent.

No one Really good? Thats crazy. He's had 7 professional MMA fights not one has gone beyond the 2nd round. 5 wins by TKO 1 submission and 1 decision.

His last 3 fights were against opponents that each outweighed him by 20 to 30 pounds or more, and he just plowed his way thru each of them enforcing his will every time.

He took out Fabiano Scherner, Justin Eilers, and Assuerio Silva his last 3 fights like they were nobody. Not a one of those guys is a pushover by any means.

This guys stated goal is to be the first UFC fighter to hold the heavy and light heavy belt and I think he's the guy that could do it. He's walking the walk and backing it all up.

The Washington Post has a great article on the guy here.

He's a lot better fighter than his body would indicate. Based on his outter layer of fat (UFC 60) he should be a light heavy.
