    I was hyped about this guy at first and dont get me wrong I still enjoy watching his fights but his persona out of the cage just rubs me the wrong way, there's confidence and being cocky n then there's just bein a straight up douche.
    He didn't have jack shit to respond to Brunsons burns other than 'have you seen my memes' fucking pathetic.. look forward to seeing him humbled.

    I like him, but I think he is going to have a much harder time at the highest levels than most people on Sherdog think. Could even seeing getting KO'd by a bunch of the top guys when he runs into them.

    This Dude is always talking about he has seen all of this in his head before. What an ass. I have NO ISSUE with a cocky Dude who can really fight, but this cat is FAAARRRRR from a future champ.

    WME is DESPERATE for personalities. Yawns, drops deuce on his whole career.

    Dude, you are like a fake MMA fighter and I been watching this shit since before some of you kids been born. Damn, Sherdog got me grumpy this morning.smh.

    He is a black nerd with fighting skills.

    Don't you see his nicknames and antics? Calls himself "the last stylebender", tries to be on edge of new memes, does edgy cross arm stance at weigh ins. Yeah, he's a dork with fighting skills.

    Yeah, I think he's a good fighter...a tad overrated.
    Could use a good humbling imo. Has had some very favorable matchups, everyone said Tavares was a tough test, but honestly Tavares isn't top tier anyway.
    All and all
    Very good striker, but defintely not the second coming of Silva like some make him out to be.

    Everyone hates on real champs when it's the early days of his respective career. Expect a win for StyleBender.

    Maybe at the beginning, he was kinda cringe worthy but I got over it quickly, he is winning fights and might sound cocky but is not a moron unlike that bum Derek Brunson,
