    Guy has got a ton of threads since his win (I know this is one of them). A lot like Sean O'Malley, but IMO a bigger one with his NFL background. He has to prove himself against top guys but there's a lot of potential there.

    I don't see him beating anyone in the top 10

    Hard to say, due to a controversial past.

    Could be a pretty solid draw if he develops into a top HW, but a good deal of the posts I see about him seem to be negative.

    Who knows, maybe he can be the new 'villain' at heavyweight. The guy fans root to see KOed.

    Either way, he has physical gifts to be sure, in a division of mostly aging guys.

    He'll be HW champion in 6 months.

    The A-Level Athlete theory will finally get put to the test.

    He can pick up where Ronda left off and be the new face off WMMA.

    Hard to say at HW.

    The quality/rankings are like a cliff. A few elite, some solid guys, old veterans that can surprise you once in awhile, and whole lot of oh shit why is that guy fighting.

    In watching his interviews and the pre DWTNCS presser, he seems like he's been humbled in the gym. I also get the vibe that he is taking the traditional martial artist approach in respecting his opponents, etc.

    I'm not saying he's a changed man, but he might be. I think as long as he keeps this attitude mentally, he might be able to make some waves and even gain some fans.

    I'll give him a chance for now, but the leash is very short as far as trouble is concerned.

    With how weak HW is I don't see why they don't just put him on the main roster just keep him away from the top 15 of course

    Feed him to Tai and end this ‘career’ before it even begins.
