    Just how bad of a fighter he is? And will he ever beat anyone inside top 10 without cheating and even with cheating

    He's not a bad fighter at all imo. Especially for heavyweight. Held his own against volkov on short notice.

    Not saying much but he's better than most heavyweights. Top 10 material now honestly. God I hate heavyweight.

    He’s horrendous, give him to Francis as a tune up.

    He is an A level athlete so he should be Top 1. Possibly GOAT even.

    Hes certainly talented

    Decent jab

    Extremely explosive. Tons of power. Boxing has improved dramatically in his last few fights.

    Without a doubt he has a ton of potential. He's still green and gave had a good showing against Volkov on short notice prior to hurting his hand. That's the top of the division.

    If he continues to hone his boxing, technique and continues to round out his game, he could be a force.

    Dunno why he gets so much hate as a fighter. Either people are clueless or they just don't like the guy.

    he's not good. like top 20 at best, but only because HW is terrible.

    but HW is so bad sometimes all you need is speed and power, even a bad HW can end up sleeping a good HW on any given night.

    He's mediocre at best which is still better than most current HWs on the roster

    Thought he looked like a bum against Volkov personaly. Maybe him hurting his hand had anything to do with that, but looked like Volkov cruise controlled to a victory to me.

    Pretty good for someone with as little fighting experience as him. Pretty impressed how well he handled himself in there with a very seasoned striker in Volkov after breaking his hand early.

    Maurice Green is a good test for him at this stage in his career. If he remains committed, he'll without a doubt be in the rankings soon.

    Sherdog is probably among the worst judges of potential out of any sports fans.. lol

    Never seen a group as a whole so consistently and painfully short sighted.

    Like the same people who said izzy was a bum for like a year straight.

    Gotta stop getting baited by these stupid posts

    He's 2 years into his professional fighting career with zero combat sports background.

    Haters gonna hate

    For his time in the sport, he’s solid by heavyweight standards. He’s never going to be the best in the world, but I have a feeling he’ll pick up a few big wins depending on how long he keeps fighting.

    Not terrible but the fact he used an inhaler between rds and missed weight at Heavyweigh is kind of concerning.

    If nothing else he is a decent competitor to have around at HW. For 2 years in, I'd say he is doing well enough.

    Exactly, and he's still maintaining a-level Status being an overweight fuck.

    He will always be in that "middle going nowhere" spot in the UFC, maybe he can knock out a rookie can here or there, but he will never reach into a contender spot in any near future. Hard to see where his future goes from this point.

    Bad?

    If anything I would say he is pretty good. Think he will be top 10 in a few more fights.
