    True.
    He has already shown more one punch knockout power than either Diaz brother.
    I expect he can find himself in any given position on the ground and simply stand up from said position like Lewis does, also.

    His punches remind me of a Bigfoot Silva's, the way they land.

    Speed gives him trouble, & he's huge so I imagine it's not an easy weight cut, maybe he should try HW?

    Edit: He's not even 29 yet. (June)

    After watching the fight tonight with Kennedy N. "African Savage" I would have to agree. He starts swarming with punches without much power, then when the opponent least expects it he throws some heavy hands and KO's his opponent. Nick Diaz did this in many of his fights.

    He is like a Derrick Lewis level athlete who was a fan of the Diaz brothers growing up.

    Get African savage over to Nick Diaz academy asap.
    African 209 savage would potentially win world titles.
    Who else has that level or pressure at LHW?
