Agreed. I am just not convinced that he has the striking to challenge the elite strikers at 170 who have good takedown defence. Remember what happened vs Marquadt? Against a Kampman or Hendricks I am afraid they have the TDD to make him shoot from uncomfortable distances and render him vulnerable to getting knocked out. That said WAR MAIA.

He was throwing stupid leg kicks against Marquadt.

TDD won't make him shoot from far away, striking will.
I think he beats kampmann, but loses to GSP for sure and hendricks maybe.
