His standup has huge holes that even I can see. All of his kicks are telegraphed - any decent striker could counter these. That's why you don't see this kind of standup in the octagon. The one thing he has going for himself is his speed. He's probably the fastest guy in the house, but that won't really help him when he's facing a guy who can control him once he's on the ground. Blanchard looked one or even two weight classes smaller than Yager and even he managed to take him down - he just couldn't control him after that. The only fight he lost was when he almost got put flat on his back and he didn't know what to do, so he kicked the guy in the face while he was down and got DQed. His other wins were against guys with losing records. Long story short, as soon as he's on his back - the other guy wins.
