    I know because I have a similar body type, and my gimp arms are the only thing keeping me from a UFC contract. You cant be trading punches with such reach disadvantage unless you have have the power of Tua or speed of Tyson.
    And this can has neither. Not to mention sloppy technique and no grappling as backup.

    No. He sucks. That's it. He tries to compensate by fighting like a robot. Just Bleed Fans eat that $hit up.

    Awful fighter. I don't see the UFC keeping him unless Conor calls in another favor.

    But if that's really you in your AV, you should have no problems with arm length. The reach on your kicks could be a problem, though...

    That was terrible to watch. DId he throw a single combo? Or even a jab? He looked like me playing Madden. No run game, no screen passes, throwing it deep on every play.

    Artem does have some very short arms for his overall body type. That does not lend itself to being a striking specialist. On top of that his striking defense is very poor. When he does encounter a comparable striker, I don't think it will go well for him.

    you can see how short his arms are here compared to normal proportions. his wrists end above his groin, whereas the guy on the right's wrist would be below his shorts if he straightened his arm. Artem's arms are even shorter proportionately than Sean Sherk's. His deadlifts would smash his dick on lockout.
