Obviously his stand up game needs the most work by far

Standup. He is beyond horrible on his feet. He's like Dean Lister, but worse standing.

Lay and pray

How can you be that good of a wrestler and not try to advance you position? The guy just needs to advance to side or full mount and swing away. He just lays in the guy's half-guard and tries to hit them with hammerfists. Boring. This guy trains with Tito and doesn't understand the gnp style. Give me a break.

You guys are all wrong...he needs the most help leaving the UFC until he is a Mixed martial artist. This is MMA, boy. Other than that probably hearing.

Ouch! So harsh!

Matt Hamill is like raw clay bro! Wait until he gets another year and two or three fights out of the way.

A) The guy seems to know no fear. He wades right into some serious punches unfazed.

B) His striking inside the clinch is great

C) His wrestling is Olympic Calibre.

Add to to that, he works out of a good ground and pound camp and a well conditioned camp at that. If he can learn some submissions from Lister and get stronger at striking, he could go far. remember, no one said he's an elite fighter. he just has the right tools to go further in the sport. A year or two and he could be a contender.

Fedor sleeps with a night light. Not because Fedor is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Fedor.

Exactly my point...a year or two and he could be a contender. He isn't even a mixed-martial artist yet. The guy needs too much training right now. Don't get me wrong I don't question his ability as a wrestler. I thought the same thing about John fitch about 1.5 years ago. Look at him now. He is still lacking things as a complete fighter but he is and was much further along than Hamill. Not to mention, much more athletic.
