You are a joke. Tarec is definately better than DHK, Maia, etc. He could probably be top 7

I absolutely believe he'll get the Rory fight, UFC will think its a good way to keep Rory active while he waits on his title shot, they'll sell the fight as Tarec being the former SF champion to override the low ranking,

and then Tarec will pick Rory apart and take it all.

Needs to get injured less. It sucks since the Lawler and Ellenberger fights would have been cool fights too. The Gyu Lim fight was great and I was impressed with how his striking looked, he kept up a good pace for five rounds as well.

I see him as a very solid fighter, well rounded with leg kicks that I absolutely love. I want to see him fight more!

he hasnt really stringed enough together to gain momentum,he joined the ufc a year and a half ago and had one fight and is sitting out again.

doesnt help that none of his performances are "wow" inducing. he fights great, but nobody leaves his fights dying to see him back there and he doesnt really have big highlight moments

he can definitely beat a lot of top fighters buti dont really get hyped to see his fights. skipped the last one because i saw it coming a mile away (tarec is too good defensively for a wild brawler in lim, and theres no way lim could stop tarecs pin-point accuracy jab and even more accurate low kick. knew that shit would repeat for 5 rounds or until lim got tired)
