    WW is the one division where Bellator is relatively stacked. I think he'd lose to at least 5 or 6 Bellator WWs (including 40-year old Fitch, who's already beaten him), so I'm not sure if he'd even fill a gatekeeper role.

    To be fair, nobody in the UFC talked seriously about him after he had a few losses. He was a front-runner type--along the lines of Sokoudjou and Gonzaga, but without beating any big names. He could quickly finish lower-level competition, by KO and a variety of submissions. He did look quite impressive before his competition level increased.

    He just looks special. Some guys you can tell just have IT. The potential to be the best.
    I look forward to following his career.
