He has good striking.
Very good all round fighter.
Think Rich Franklin all round.
His wrestling is best, than striking, than ground game(although his wrestling isn't awesome, his ground game isn't bad either).
I think his biggest problem will be his less than mediocre chin and Faber's TDD.
So he has almost no chance.
They should have signed him 5 years ago... fuck UFC.
