    He really needs to drop a few pounds, from a lot of the fights I've seen he slows down after the first round. He is a decent athlete, strong and very agile for a man of his size but he isn't going to get to the top until he really disciplines himself.

    Didn't Peter Graham KO him? Was that an official MMA bout?

    He definitely has potential, but seems like he doesn't take the sport as serious as he could and gets by on alot of natural talent. I would like to see him fight Justin Ledet, think it makes sense.

    Also wouldn't be opposed to him fighting Browne, would probably be a good test and nice name at this point in his career. Tuivasa has never been past the first and Travis has never been finished in the first aside from Arlovski.

    Ive trained with both of them, Hunt actually looks kinda small. Tai looks fucking huge.

    Ive sparred with guys up to 6'7" and no one was as intimidating as sparring with Tai (despite being extremely friendly).

    Nah was combat 8. Basically real quick stand ups.

    Graham (whose cardio in insane) tired him out when Tai was much bigger than now. I recall it being a decent fight.
    Also not sure if Tai was even 20yo at the time, thats like a featus in HW years.

    He's been fighting in AFC though. There's not too many MMA fighters in this country.

    It's HW and he has legit KO power. He'll probably fight for the title.

    As long as he has some ability to wrestle. He'll run into a grappler eventually.

    No doubt he will, but this is HW, nobody is ever really more than a couple of wins away from a title shot.
