    4 KO 4 Sub 1 Decision, Champ in Extreme Cage Combat regional league. Looks promising, plus he is a local born In Newfoundland trains in Halifax.

    This is what a fight night card should be about.

    Having really solid prospects/potential top 15 guys on it.

    Use fight night cards to build prospects, while saving fox cards and ppv's for top contender fights, title fights, high quality fights ,etc.

    This is why I miss the Strikeforce Challengers series. UFC needs to do more of this.

    Now that I think about it, you really can picture him wearing a sweater vest. He's a Baymen though so I imagine he not a pussy

    I agree. Make something like ufc fight night: challengers where a lot of prospects go and fight each other. If someone has success and goes like 3-0, 2-1 then they would get promoted to a ufc contract, if they lose some in the ufc, fighters could get demoted to the challenger series, and if they do bad there, then of course they would be cut. It would be a great gateway of determining if a guy is quality why seeing his success in the challenger instead of what they do now and just brining guys in and throwing them to the wolves in the ufc. Challengers would build up prospects, give them better resumes/experience, plus keep a lot of lower level fighters out of the ufc.

    Its a win win win win situation lol

    Have you seen who he fought? For the moment it's a best example of can crusher. Let's see how he will do against some guys with actual experience.

    And don't you dare to start another Mike Perry Hype train here....

    I have never seem him fight but he seems like a can crusher... ECC has a hard time bringing in legit fighters to their promotion though. Hard for them to cover travel costs.

    His opponents had a combined record of 27-27 when he faced them.

    I reckon he'll TKO Sicilia, whose chin is pretty much done I think.
