    He looked terrific.

    Great use of different and accurate strikes and counter knees to discourage Danny from shooting the TD or clinching.

    Felder looked huge for a LW. Castillo is a big guy, but Felder looked thicker everywhere. He must cut a significant amount of weight.

    Yes recognized the face and knew he fought in ufc before but overlooked him since that was a split decision and there are so many fights now.

    That said he is on my radar now.

    Yep, he was good in his first fight as well. Saggo is underrated as hell.

    Yes, I remember the thread a friend of his made saying to keep an eye out for him, loved the gifs he posted and knew this kid was going to be something special.

    If he fought in the UFC I've watched it but his name didn't ring a bell. Excited to watch him fight next.

    Yes, but only because he knocked out someone with a spinning heel kick and I saw it on YouTube. I didn't watch the prelim card for his first UFC fight.

    I looked him up and noticed he was one of the few guys who didn't have his own wiki!


    He should now...

    Never heard of him before, but knocking out Danny made me a fan.

    Yes, Joe, you said that multiple times :D

    Seriously though, makes you wonder why more strikers don't use them against shorter opponents. A knee makes the striker less exposed than a leg kick, against a wrestler.

    I was surprised with how big he was. He dwarfed Castillo, who is not a small LW.

    All the sherdouches are going to say they've been following him since his NAAFS days (or wherever he came from). In fact, you're not a real fight fan if you don't already have a poster of him dunking over Shaq on your wall.

    Here is an example, however, of an honest answer. Or at least one of fight fan with an actual life.
