Meh. I guess he showed he can take a beating cause max just put on a clinic on the moving punching bag.

I don't see how he had 60 boxing fights before this.

Took fight on 10 days notice against a guy with a ton of UFC experience who is pretty well round....lets wait to see him with a full training camp before making such claims

so we are judging his future based on one fight, taken on 10 days notice, against a pretty solid fighter in holloway?

guy looked about as good as i would expect. give him a full training camp, see what he can do with it, and then lets revisit this conversation

Props to him for fighting Holloway on short notice on his debut, he left nothing outside the cage either. I think he's 21 years old?

He is exactly the kind of fighter that the UFC needs to sign up. If I was a bettor, I'd put good money on him to win his next couple of fights and cement himself in the UFC.
