I've seen his last couple of fights in CR and I think the guy is a beast. He does seem to lack any sort of submission skills but he's a mean brawler who avoids subs pretty well. I think the HW division will definitely benefit from his presence. He's built like a tank, has a head like a snowplow, and a name like a Crusades-era warlord. Hopefully he spends all his time between then and now working his sub and takedown defense though. It's becoming a nasty world for pure strikers in the HW division again with Nog, Mir, Brock, Randy, Velasquez etc.
His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.
