    Don't really know much about him, does his ground game check out? I've only seen him fight once. How does he stack up against Chico Camus who I also don't know really much about.

    His standup is pretty good too! He could go far in his division

    He's going to tool Chico.

    Despite their "bridesmaid status" Team Alpha Male is full of killers

    I think Camus is outmatched here.

    I've only seen his fight against Davey Grant. His takedowns looked rather weak but he was definitely above-average once he got it to the ground. I'm not sold on him and don't think he deserves to be such a big favorite against Camus, but I do think he has potential to be a good fighter IF he can put it together.

    I only saw him in the TUF finale and he looked ok. His opponent was a bit green. His BJJ worked, but it looked like it needed more MMA adaptation.
    He probably can go far if he works hard.

    Threads like this confirm my belief that if you don't watch TUF, you aren't a fan of the sport.

    How the fuck can you not know a guy who has finished everyone he's fought, and buzz sawed through multiple undefeated opponents on TUF.

    man too bad Kang got hurt, that would have been a sick fight. Grappling exchanges would have been very exciting

    I thought "Allan Holdsworth", when I read the thread title at first. But yeah. CH is the real deal and I think he can take it far. I see him as another TJ Dillashaw type with ever improving striking to eventually truly compliment his grappling.
