    As perhaps the biggest WW on the roster, Lim packs a ton of power but lacks technical expertise as seen in his fights.

    He had everyone that beat him in trouble but could not seal the deal due to over-reliance on power without precision. However, I like the fact that he does not hump his opponents like the Dong and brings excitement to every bout.

    If he polishes his skill-set and fights with more patience and reach, do you see him making the top 10?

    We will have to see if he's still a WW after the IV ban.

    I thought definitely but after seeing him get finished by Magny - nothing against Magny whatsoever, I realised this guy needs to work on his cardio and his technical striking. The crazy wild swinging and knees are exciting but they only work for a little while until everyone knows what to expect

    He obviously has a lot of raw talent but seemed a bit green against Magny. The division is pretty athletic wrestle boxer heavy which is a problem.

    The guy has an unreal figure as well for WW - really hope the guy can stick it in the ufc if he stays at 170 or goes up

    Not ruling out a Lawler-like renaissance, but I see Lim's future as being this "win 2, lose 1"-guy who will stick around forever on the merit of his fights being entertaining, without sniffing a title shot.

    He's a beast physically at WW. The only things he's lacking, in my opinion, is good cardio, wrestling, and fight IQ. He's not a dumb fighter, but his range of skillset is limited and is predictable. If he has Jones' fight IQ and better wrestling, he could dominate WW.

    I think he is much better than he showed in his last fight. Everyone has bad performances sometimes. That fight was in the philippines and he was weakened by the tropical climate. He will be back.
