    8-0 (7 kos). You might know him as the guy who just slept Allen Crowder (can who beat Greg Hardy) with a jab.

    This guy comes from a kickboxing background having 64 knockouts there. So yes, obviously he is limited on the ground, but he's learning... not too many guys in that division can compete with him on the feet. Serious power but also the technical advantage.

    Not sure why he isn't ranked, yet Marcin Tybura is (Cain Velasquez is also ranked #8??? ) Match Rozenstruik up with Greg Hardy, could be an epic fight.

    How did you make out with your picks yesterday? If not well, stop making prediction threads. If you did do well, congrats and keep truckin'. Crowder never "beat" Hardy he got lucky Hardy had a moment of doubt and kneed him in the fucking face. Don't mislead people, either.

    I got every one right, down to the round and method. This wasn't a prediction thread though.

    You got 12 out of 12 fights right down to the round and method? That would be worth over a million dollars. Not calling you a liar at all, but seeing is believing, proof? Even for no money on tapology that would make you a legend. Still behind me though. Nobody ever passing me.

    Buuuut... i do not believe you.

    Rosenstruik vs Arlovski sounds good.

    Really athletic as well. Head-kicks like crocop. I got high hopes for him.

    Yes. Are you retarded? I was obviously joking in the first quote.

    It wasnt the jab that finished Crowder

    Crowder slipped

    It was the standing ground and pound after the slip

    He beat Crowder after one of the most blatant eye pokes I’ve seen in a while. I was surprised no one else mentioned it.

    Because rankings are based on overall record and who you've beaten... not on who you subjectively think would win in a fight.

    Cain has only lost to JDS, Francis and Verdum. I agree that Jair is a promising prospect, but he only has two fights in the UFC. Even in the relatively shallow heavyweight division, wins over Junior Albini and Crowder don't give you a pass to the top ten.

    I agree with you that Jair vs Hardy would be great. (Or maybe Maurice Greene.)

    If he has a ounce of talent and skill then he should be UFC HW champion in no time at all. I haven't seen enough of him but give him Arlovski next

    He pretty much has 0 grappling, unfortunately. Can still be a ranked HW as a word class kickboxer though.
