    Dude has a powerful squeeze, last weekend he got the arm triangle while stuck in half guard with right leg on the outside.

    He may have lost to Joe B but that was due to an early head butt and also multiple punches to the back of his head.

    His wrestling is pretty top notch, he’s got strong finishing submission abilities — especially from the front head lock position — along with crisp, technical combination striking. At range he can throw debilitating calf kicks and he’s got a really good jab. He’s also willing to go toe to toe in the pocket:

    Flyweight has some good fighters despite everyone trashing it and seem disinterested in it.

    It's technically a "dark poney", please correct the misleading title.

    There are nine dark horses at flyweight and each of them would be a contender / world champion if they could translate their skillsets into another, bigger body

    1 Formiga
    2 Figueiredo (now title contender)
    3 Pantoja
    4 Moreno
    5 Askarov
    6 Bontorin
    7 Kara-France
    8 Perez
    9 Paiva

    Pantoja is essentially better, more agressive version of Costa, and Figueiredo is as freakish as Romero but crazier

    Some other fun fighters:
    Schnell
    Elliott

    He's entertaining but if you get finished by Joe Benavidez nowadays you will amount to fuck all.

    And if it does, it surely can't have a radar at this point.
