    Look at this guy's fights.. He's like a smaller, more aggressive Aldo. Guy has great power and striking accuracy. He fades kinda quickly from the frenetic pace he sets. But if you look at it, the guy only loses to the very elite. Brian Ortega can now rightfully be called elite.

    I guess all of this means watch out for Ahmed Aliev...?

    I’d compare him more to like a Brazilian Artem Lobov

    Beasts in the TUF house with vicious KO’s of all their opponents, sucked ass in the UFC

    Sucked ass?

    He wins two then he loses to a very difficult opponent. Losses are to Conor, Porier, Ortega and then this Russian guy.

    He has that crazy brazillian rage, similar to Thiago Silva or that guy who fought Gerald Harris. It's not healthy. And he played right into Proirier's game

    Yes Mr Killer, he s a great gatekeeper. And Ortega is top 5 at FW, that'd be elite.

    He had a winning UFC record and his losses were to Conor, Poirier, Ortega, and Elkins. All are ranked.

    Didnt get cut based on losing, got high and caused a scene at a strip club.

    Apparently he showed up with a gun waving it around, i remember it had something to do with him thinking the girl he was with cheating on him.

    Later people said it wasnt as bad as first reports said but the UFC curt him immediately when the story broke.

    So he beat everybody but the big names or the ones who were going to be big names...like a gatekeeper. Like TS said.

    He had a winning record over ten fights and every loss was to a good fighter. Saying he sucked ass makes him sound like Mckenzie.

    He is a hothead. His recent loss was him saying "fuck this" and just crawled out the cage and left the building because he got pissed off by a foul.

    EDIT: Its on YouTube if you want to watch it, FNG 73
