Am I the only one...

Who thinks that Amir has some great potential? He didn't look very impressive in his first fight, but he's damn entertaining. With some time and proper training, I think he could be a force at MW. He reminds me of a Chris Leben except with Muy Thai. I can't wait to see him when he matures as a fighter. Does anyone else feel the same way? I mean all the focus seems to be on CB this season...And I have to admit that I hate the cocky little pr!ck.

i thought he looked really good too. In that fight he kept his composure even though he got droppped on his head a couple times and ended up winning when no one thought he would.

I absolutely agree. Just check out my Sig if you don't believe me

I find him entertaining as hell, and extremely impressive considering has has ZERO professional fights.

It's also kind of funny that he's a striker, who idolizes Cro Cop, yet all of his amateur wins come via submission. Sweet.

Haha I found that to be pretty awesome. A potential MW Cro Cop (hopefully not a Zelg-like disappointment) with a decent ground game. But once Amir matures, I wanna see him fight Leben. Could you imagine what a slugfest that would be???

That would be pretty awesome. I hope it comes down to Amir and CB in the end. I'd love to see Amir knee him in the mouth and put him and his hype to rest.

He gave great heart but i don't forsee him beating brown... I hope Tim Crueder beats the crap out of cb (if i predicted correctly) in the finals.(that would go against my rankings)

I like Amir a lot. He reminds me of one of my friends so I always laugh when he does things. I don't see him winning the show, but he should be in the UFC.

He seems like a real cool guy with some good skills. I'd like to see him go to a good camp to help him improve though. He definitely has heart and is hilarious. Even if he doesn't go past the next round I think we'll see him in the UFC.
