    He’s still raw but has a lot of room for improvement, this guy is someone to watch out for. He has great movement and BRUTAL leg kicks. His takedown defense is not great but it’s not terrible and he even got some good takedowns himself, pretty active off his back too. Looking forward to seeing what this kid can do in the future after he gets more experience.

    Agreed. Larkey didn't do anything with his takedowns and you have to credit Ziam for defending/reversing a lot of them. Ziam was also more active, striking and looking for the back when he had top control.

    You have to remember he trains in france where MMA just got legalized. Definitely loads of room for improvement, especially if he moves to one of the bigger camps.

    I dunno man. Mullarkey is not UFC caliber, and it's highly debatable who won that fight.

    Ziam might be better served by training rather than fighting for a while. UFC fighters will fuck him up.

    Don't see it. Cardio isn't there and he just got gifted a decison against a pretty mediocre fighter in Mullarkey.
