    This guy is a warrior. Insane chin, awesome hands, and the spirit of 11 dragons. Mw will be a great division for him. I give him the edge over guys like Leben, Carmont, Munoz, Camozzi, Mcgee, Ring, Sakara, etc. Im not sure how he will do against top guys (Bisping, Belcher, Belfort, etc) but I think he will for sure be a top 10 MW.

    After the beating he endured from a much bigger fighter I wouldnt be opposed to seeing how well he handled Andersons attacks. Dude is tough as fucking nails.

    True, a dude who can take punishment and throw as hard as him could give Andy a little scare.

    Lmao Sherdog never ceases to amaze me, so now that he could take punishment like that from Teixiera he can hang with Anderson. GTFO...

    Alot of hype behind him just because he didnt go out from that shot in his last fight.

    Anyone who thinks Maldonado has great hands is not watching the fights and is instead believing the hilariously manufactured pro boxing record he compiled.

    No defence, no jab, walks on to strikes non-stop. He's exciting, and I like is body work, but he's not top 10 anything except perhaps glutton for punishment.

    Doesn't matter how big of a warrior you are, when James McSweeney is your only win in the UFC in almost 2.5 years, it doesn't scream like potential top 10 to me

    At MW yes. Look at Stann, dude has some solid striking but was never going to be much at LHW. Drops to MW and starts knocking dudes the fuck out.

    i don't think so. MW div is filled with more athletic fighters compared to the LHW div imo. he's good where he's at.
