I think maybe in a few years, he can be a contender
1st round exit, quarter final at best.
Uriah is overrated. I don't see him beating top MW contenders.
He needs another fight before he can get anywhere.
Before losing to Gastelum, half of Sherdog would have told you he was the one to dethrone Silva.
He's dangerous and fast, but the top guys are too complete for him imo
Why the dubs?
It was cause Dana White was jizzing over Urijah Hall's TUF wins.
He is very athletic, his technique is good, he has good speed. He just seems to lack the aggression and desire to finish. I don't see him going very far if he doesn't get more aggressive.
Overrated by who? No one is really hyping him up right now.
He has insane physical gifts, and amazing striking technique, but I don't see him ever becoming a champion because he doesn't have the right mindset. He doubts himself and he feels bad for hurting his opponents. If he had the mental fortitude of Cain and that killer attitude he could easily be a championship level talent, but I don't see it as something he can just learn.
I don't think he can handle wrasslers, or anyone who can get him down and has good control.
I hope he sticks around, though. He can string together some good wins with favorable match-ups. Would like to see him KO the Count.
Fixed that for ya.
But to awnser TS, i think he can be a solid top 10 fighter but i don't see him becoming the champion.
far enough to where I wont have to read these threads every week.
I know he's big, black and flashy, but he's not defensively or technically sound enough to make it into the top 10 of his division.
He's Barboza level
Yeah, that what i was thinking
Not far. He is a psychological mess. Has the mind of a child; troubled and sensitive, easily inhibited and intimidated.
yep. The tears were glorious. Kelvin's at 170 now too!
This is kinda the impression that I get. I think his mentality will hold him back more than anything else. When he knocked out Adam Cella, he became extremely withdrawn and almost remorseful, like he couldn't believe he had just done that... which says a lot about his humanity, but you have to be able to shut that off if you are gonna be trying to take heads off for a living.
Is he really that athletic? All I can notice is that he's ripped, but I really don't see him more athletic than the average UFC fighter, you know..
Are you sure?
