    Some manlets are as strong as full sized people.

    Impressive.

    Looks more like slick technique to me than just strength.

    He’s got surprisingly good takedowns. Too bad he doesn’t seem to have that much heart. He’s a handful on the ground.

    His striking can be good too but we haven’t seen much of it in recent fights.

    That's impressive, especially against Lamas and Brooks.

    Bit of both IMO. There's some lift in two of those.

    He's such a strong starter and he just wilts when things get tough. I actually defended him when everyone questioned his heart against Cub lol.

    I think he would have beat Felder if he just went for top position and ground n pound but it's like as soon as he realised he couldn't tap Felder, he just gave up.

    I wish this guy had more heart. Such an amazing and exciting fighting style, but he will never be truly great

    I thought for sure after seeing him the first time that he was the next superstar in MMA. Then he fought Jim Miller and I was over hyping him to all my friends watching that card lol. I still like him though.

    Honestly, this dude needs a sports therapist, if he just got his head straight he'd be a killer. I actually thought he was gonna smash Felder if he could get a takedown

    That's more technique than strength. Also, he has freakishly little heart. ;)

    Sports therapy can't teach heart.

    He was a scary prospect though, didn't seem to have many holes, you weren't far off. Just can't seem to put it all together but he is a dangerous fight finisher still.

    He's like 21 savage. He has no heart.
