I like the guy but would like to see a lot more from him. His striking is good, used to be great, and he's got good ground skills as well. I just think he:
1. Needs to rebuild whatever he lost that weakened his Muay Thai, and:
2. ...Nope that's it.
His ground is solid (not the best by any account, but good) and if his striking can better itself beyond what it already is, or rather was before his inexplicable downturn, he has a chance to be in contention for the title.
