    Right now, the GP is King Mo, Cro Cop, Baruto Kaito, Tsuyoshi Kohsaka, Amir Aliakbari, Heath Herring, Valentin Moldavsky, and Szymon Bajor.

    I've never heard of this guy Amir Aliakbari. Holy shit:

    6'4 262 lbs

    World Wrestling Championships Gold Medal

    29 Years Old

    This is kind of like Daniel Cormier back in the Strikeforce GP days. Winning it out of nowhere, but upon retrosprect it's obvious.

    This guy is in his athletic prime and is the kind of guy the UFC needs to be recruiting.

    Against washed up has-beens and 400 lb guys, though, he's doing to dominate.

    He better watch out for the knee to the chops on his shoot.

    Well, he's a roided up wrestler. They tend to excel in tournament environments.

    I hope Heath chokes him out just so that you look like a retard, and no, he won't be going to the UFC any time soon. You think he'd pass an USADA test? Lol.

    I don't think dark horse means an absurd favorite, which i have him as. I have Moldavsky as the dark horse with Aliakbari and King Mo as the favorites, but i lean Aliakbari

    also, no, he won't be in the UFC. The reason he isn't is because he won't pass a drug test, so it's best not to even take the risk

    Guy has alot going for him but he's short on experience. We'll see how that affects him but thats the only reason we're discussing it like herring has a chance.

    Yes, that's why I'm rooting for him. Because he's facing his worst style matchup in the form of a young, roided Wrestling champion. He's probably going to get his shit pushed in, but whatever.

    he couldn't dominate an out of shape herring who hadn't fought in 8 years, he has a lot of improving to do

    He clearly just didn't know how to pace himself. He destroyed Herring before gassing out.

    Amir looked deadly in that first round. Clearly juiced to the gills. Impressive speed. Great powerful, wrestling and BRUTAL GnP. Anyone who fights him is going to be in a storm for the first round. Absolute savage.

    Moldavsky will either exhaust him and give him hell or Aliakbaroid will dominate. Can't see it going in between.
