    Like with every other prospect, it all depends on the matchups they'd give him.

    Probably too specialised. He'd probably end up like Demian Maia.

    He's not ready yet, he needs another 18 months in one at least.

    Mainly it makes me wonder how Bibiano Fernandez would have done in the UFC when he was at his prime on a 14-fight win streak.

    Can't wait to see how well both Tonan and Gordon Ryan do.

    Nicky Ryan vs. Urijah Faber today at Polaris.... also Richie Martinez and Craig Jones.

    And Combat Jiu-Jitsu tournament (EBI) on Sunday.

    Good fuckin weekend.

    He would do well as long as the ufc didn't push him too fast and let him get some fights against non top guys at first.

    Watching him grapple is a real treat.

    Hasn’t he been working on his boxing for awhile now?

    If he went to the UFC he, Kron Gracie, Brian Ortega and Ryan Hall would be in the same division.

    He'd amass more wins them loses
    So multiple time title contender? That's pretty good in my book
