    REALLY impressed me here, on almost no notice against a KILLER like Santos.

    Even off of his back, he showed great survival instincts. Santos was trying to tee off on him, and he defended himself quite well, to get back up to his feet.

    Really good reflexes and instincts for a guy who hasn't been training for a long time.

    For someone who’s career is still in its beginning stages, he continues to show great instincts and continuous improvements.

    Regardless of the outcome tonight, everyone should keep an eye on him.

    I expected him to get owned in this fight. Glad to see it was as good as it was.

    No, he's too stiff. Has rudimentary striking, cardio seems to be mediocre and is basically using pure strength and no technique for his TD. And literally just gave up walking to his corner.....

    He's certainly got a hell of a fucking chin.

    Needs to work on his cardio at the higher weight. A lot of potential though

    Totally disagree. Santos is a perennial 10-15 guy and he just destroyed Anders. This whole short notice nonsense is irrelevant. Anders just had a fight a few weeks ago. He's still in fight shape

    Considering he took this fight on NO notice....YES!

    He did awesome with NO camp against a BRUTAL finisher.

    I stand 100% behind my statement.

    Flame Away!!!

    Gave up? the guy fought like a fucking savage and he was clearly rocked from those elbows from Santos, he was trying to get back to his corner

    It's easier to KO someone when they're tired. His chin's fine.

    Santos went all Travis Brown on Anders. Those elbows took him out

    Me too, especially as a last minute replacement.

    His cardio did not hold up, but up until he gassed, he was holding his own against a MUCH more experienced LHW.
