    This guy is a very entertaining fighter and a brutal KO artist. He has tied Silva's record of most finishes at MW with 8.

    One of my favorites on the roster atm. I don't think he'll ever be champ (he'll choke on big fights like my other favorites Edson and Cerrone) but I'm always excited when steps in the octagon!

    Moose absolutely destroyed him which doesn't say anything bad about Marreta but Jesus the UFC suck for letting Moose go.

    Love this guy. Probably most exciting fighter in the division, goes absolutely full intensity every time.

    Branch is a tricky guy though, smart fighter. Will be an interesting fight.

    I just love his style, he must be a terrifying opponent to fight because you know if he can kick you once or twice flush it will change the fight completely. Imagine blocking on those full power bodykicks.

    Also, NEVER compare that level of competition to the dudes that Anderson was finishing.

    Also, since when was he Marreta?

    Next you'll be calling Nick Diaz "El Diablo".

    He still has a lot to improve in the grappling department, but on the feet he´s a nightmare for anyone in the division.

    The guy has amazing power. I don´t think "that many people" in the division can take those kicks.

    Edit: I liked the fact that he didn´t throw a follow up punch. Bosse was clearly out.

    "Clearly out" is actually an understatement. Lol After the cheers for the knockout, everyone got super quiet. We thought he was DED. Not sure what the TV broadcast showed. But Bosse was unconscious an extremely long time.

    They usually move the camera away, but Dayum watching that live!!! I can only imagine how seriously fucked up Bosse looked after that kick.

    His nickname has always been Marreta.

    Marreta means sledgehammer in Portuguese. Hence why he has a giant sledgehammer on his chest, with the word "Marreta" written inside it.
