    Eh, I'm not so sure. As some other people have pointed out his striking is pretty bad. Tybura or Rothwell would make a good matchup at this point I think,

    I think Juan Espino is a problem in the HW division only problem is his age

    He's BJJ and wrestling is a serious threat. He actually keeps guys down really well and mixes his wrestling really well wth his striking so he barely gets hits.

    Lol makes more than probably 75% of the roster and for the time he’s spent training he’s actually decent, Romanaov would be a good test of his takedown defense and ground game.

    I believe he could if he did more cardio, he can take a shot and his power is more than pavlovich but pavlovich is still getting better and young at 28 so, I would favor pavlovich 8/10 times

    He needs to sure up his striking defense de lima lit him up. If he just walks in on someone with ko power they will sleep him. This isn't bw where you can get by on good chin.

    Brilliant plan to call out Tybura pillow fists next though. Better wrestling will win.

    Thinking about it, Espino vs. Romanov is the fight to make next. Tybura will probably have his eyes set on a bigger name than Romanov, so this would be an awesome fight

    He's looks okay, but HW's who are all grappling without any real striking tend to peak out at around where Oleinik is in the UFC.

    Someone like a Derrick Lewis would probably knock him out.

    Tyburas probably getting a top 15 opponent.

    Pavlovich
    Espino
    Daukas
    Boser
    Aspinall
    Romanov
    Hardy

    All have shown promise and would make interesting match ups
