He has skinny legs and small hips but big arms and wide shoulders.

You really need to lay of the haterade. The UFC wants him at FW. He has stated that he can fight at either FW, LW or even WW (he talked about fighting Diego there, for instance). The only difference is how much time he needs to diet down. He was FW and LW champ at Cage warriors, for gods sake.

Lol he hasn't beaten a top opponent yet. And he won't.

Do you automatically cheer for Swedes, no matter what?
I mean I think he is an exciting prospect, but I don't become a bigger fan just because he lives in the same country I do.
