    I really hope they ease him into it. Give him a good three fights before a top 15. I think people will be surprised by his grappling ability

    Nah because he has actually been grappling since 2010 unlike other kickboxing crossovers. Hes not looking to make a quick buck he is taking a big pay cut just so he can prove hes the best. guy is getting more well rounded everyday

    He got taken down easy in his last fight before bouncing straight up and knocking his opp. Out cold with a question mark kick. He is actually fighting a good mate of his last opp. This guy ( wilkinson) is a much better wrestler. Pumped for it, he is elite. Should be glory MW champ imo

    Glad you reminded me op. Looking forward to his fight. I'm realistic about his long term chances though. I see a alot of GnP losses and wrestle humping, but I hope he get mix in some exciting wins too.

    Youre right in that regard and it would be better for viewership if they match him up with stand up guys at least until hes top 15. At that point I think his wrestling ahould be good enough to keep it upright. I just hope he travels to the US and develops high level defensive grappling before he gets too high of a ranked opponent

    Yeah for sure once he breaks into the top 15 he will be up against some quality grapplers that will really show us if he is a future title challenger. I think he has the goods though, watching him come up in the NZ scene there is such an aura about him. He will break the top ten on two years easily
