His super aggressive and unorthodox ground game is a threat to anyone. The way he went from having Hioki locking a RNC from his back to subbing him a few seconds later with a weird ass choke showed it.

his progression is typical, it's just that many fans expect all talented fighters to fight for a belt within a year or two, when he's coming along nicely, is coming to his own, but was fed to contenders when he was too green.

Edgar didn't really wanna engage with him on the ground & if he learns to use that reach & keep the shorter, stockier wrestlers at bay.. He can beat anyone.
i just think he's too physically weak to beat guys like the 3 i mentioned. they're just a superior stock of athlete. i keep thinking back to the Jim Miller fight where he just beasted out on Oliveira's leg.

Fuckin' A.

I hate getting caught in any kind of muscle crushing sub/position.

My instructor is amazing at catching me in calf slicer/crushing subs and I always end up with huge bruises from them. A few weeks ago the bruise was so deep it took like 4 days to show up.
